A Europe that respects life from conception is a humane Europe
The respect due to the life and dignity of all human beings from conception is recognized in European and international law. The European regulation which prohibits the funding of the destruction of embryos in the framework of research, the directive on biotechnologies which prohibits the patenting of practices which involve the destruction of embryos are based on the recognition that all human embryos are coated with human dignity.
One of Us questions the European institutions on their democratic responsibility.
The European Citizens' Initiative mechanism was created to share European legislative initiative with European citizens. This instrument aims to open the European Union to the participation of citizens, and to strengthen its democratic legitimacy. One of Us is a public testimony to the conscience of millions of European citizens who recognize the humanity and individuality of every human being from conception. With this One of Us mobilization, we are attentive to the voice of conscience which says that the life of every individual begins at conception, therefore every human embryo is already an individual and deserves respect.
Every human being has a conscience which allows them to recognize what is true and what is good; and it is by virtue of this awareness that we demand that no European Union funds be allocated to activities that destroy human embryos.
