Question for written answer E-007738-16
to the Council
Rule 130
Joëlle Bergeron (EFDD)

 Subject:  Abortion
 Answer in writing 

The Polish Government’s intention to restrict the right to abortion in Poland has prompted extensive criticism in the Union.

If the government of an EU Member State asks its national parliament to vote on a law prohibiting or restricting the right to abortion, does the Council consider such a law to be characteristic of an infringement of fundamental rights as defined by the EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights, or does it consider the promulgation of such a law as a sovereign expression of the will of a Member State’s people?
