The President of the Episcopal Conference of Poland, Roman Catholic Archbishop Stanisław Gądecki, wrote in a statement concerning the European Parliament’s recent resolution on Poland’s abortion law that speaking of a legal compromise when it comes to the protection of life is a falsification of reality.
This is because it omits the most important and third party of the conflict: unborn children and their unquestionable right to life.
The archbishop referred to the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, reminding people that “everyone has a right to live.” The EU therefore acknowledges that unassailable human dignity and respect for the right to life form a basic criterium of democracy and a state of law.
Gądecki pointed out that the very title of the European Parliament resolution concerning the abortion law in Poland (“Resolution on the de facto ban on the right to abortion in Poland”) is already misleading, and not only ethically. He declared that in light of international law, there is no such thing as a “right to abortion” and that “in no democratic legal order can there be a right to kill an innocent human.” Archbishop Stanisław Gądecki: The right to life is a basic human right, and it always has priority over the right of choice because no human can authoritatively permit the possibility of the killing of another. The President of the Polish Episcopate emphasized that “the right to life is a basic human right, and it always has priority over the right of choice because no human can authoritatively permit the possibility of the killing of another.”
The archbishop also thanked the pro-life movements for their efforts to promote and protect the lives of the unborn.
He called them “the voice of thousands of children in wombs that are in danger” and the voice of natural reason, which defends human life in every phase of its development in spite of ideological conformism and opportunism.
The resolution concerning the abortion law in Poland was passed by the European Parliament on November 26.
A total of 455 MEPs voted in favor, 145 were opposed and 71 abstained. The resolution considers the Polish constitutional court’s verdict, which bans eugenic abortion, to be a restriction on women’s rights.
