EU: By adopting the “Lunacek Report” the European Parliament has turned down Human Rights for all

With 394 to 176 votes with 72 abstentions, the European Parliament has today adopted the highly controversial “Lunacek-Report” despite unprecedented massive protests by European citizens. In doing so, the European Parliament has severely damaged its own pretensions to represent the people that elect it. Even worse: by adopting this report, which advocates legal privileges for homosexuals, and at the same time rejecting an alternative motion that called on the EU and its Member States to ensure the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights by all citizens, the Parliament has put a thick question mark behind its claim to be an institution that protects human rights.

In other words, the European Parliament has with today’s vote rejected the principle of universality of human rights. This is a day of shame.

For those of us who think that human rights must be universal, the outcome of this vote is disappointing. But it is a defeat without major consequences. On the contrary, the overwhelmingly negative public response to the Lunacek-Report is an encouraging sign that the true understanding of human rights will in the end prevail. It is now necessary to keep the pressure up high.
