#TheFutureIsYours Velar por las libertades de los ciudadanos
Juridical protection of dignity, right to life and integrity of every human being from conception is of fundamental importance for the future of Europe.
Dignity and integrity of the human embryo must be respected. This is enounced by the ECJ in the Brüstle vs Greenpeace case, which recalls the definition of the human embryo as the beginning of the development of the human being. To ensure consistency in areas of its competence where the life of the human embryo is at stake, the EU should prohibit, and end funding for activities which presuppose the destruction of human embryos, in particular in the areas of research, development aid and public health.
In 2013, 1.7 million European citizens called through a European Citizens' Initiative - ONE OF US - for the respect of the human embryo in EU policies. ONE OF US has demanded that the EU stop funding research that involves the destruction of human embryos. ONE OF US has requested that EU humanitarian aid operations in third countries not include funding for abortions.
We are those citizens mobilised with ONE OF US. We are 1.7 million citizens, a figure never equaled for a European Citizens' Initiative. This makes ONE OF US the most successful mobilisation since the creation of this participatory democracy tool set up to allow citizens to get involved in the EU's construction.
We reiterate our demand to the EU to recognise the protection of all human life as a value of Europe.
