Parliamentary questions
7 February 2014
Answer given by Mr Piebalgs on behalf of the Commission

The Commission notes that the question from the Honourable Member is similar to questions already asked by fellow parliamentarians. To this end the Honourable Member is kindly referred to the replies to questions E-12531/2013, E-005275/2012 and E-005269/2012(1) which clarify the EU’s financing policy on abortion and our respect for partner countries’ policies and legislation in this matter.

As to the European Dignity Watch report, it is founded on erroneous analysis of the EU’s policies on funding healthcare and abortion in third countries and includes inaccurate interpretation of the International conference on population and development (ICPD). The Commission does not intend to comment further on this report.

The European citizen’s initiative ‘One of Us’ (ECI(2012)000005) is currently subject to verification of statements of support by the competent national authorities. Once it has been officially received by the Commission, it will be examined according to the appropriate procedure. No interim measures have been planned.
