  Janusz Korwin-Mikke (NI). – Mr President, I voted no because it goes against the policy of equal rights of sexes. I do not understand why women must be preferred to men. I must inform you that the President of the Silesian branch of our party, who was a doctor in a big hospital in a big Silesian town, says that the number of husbands hurt by their wives is greater than the number of wives hurt by men, because men almost never admit that they have been beaten by a woman. So I do not see why there is this inequality.
