MADRID (ACI/EWTN Noticias) - Seg煤n explic贸 la plataforma HazteO铆r, la propuesta de resoluci贸n del Parlamento Europea que acaba de ser rechazada, estaba basada en el denominado "informe ESTRALA", "una ?perversa propuesta con la que se pretend铆a eliminar 'toda barrera de acceso' ?de los menores a la anticoncepci贸n".

Para HazteO铆r, esta decisi贸n del organismo europeo constituye "todo un 茅xito c铆vico, despu茅s de que miles de ciudadanos hayan secundado la alerta contrarreloj habilitada por HO y CitizenGO, en defensa de la dignidad humana y de la infancia, exigiendo que votaran en contra de esta propuesta".

En efecto, la campa艅a de HazteO铆r y CitizenGO recogi贸 m谩s de 37 mil firmas, dirigidas a los eurodipitados.

El informe que dio pie a esta propuesta de resoluci贸n regresar谩 ahora al Comit茅 de Derechos de la Mujer y la Igualdad Sexual del Parlamento Europeo, donde se podr谩 investigar mejor los abundantes puntos problem谩ticos de este documento, que, seg煤n denunci贸 la plataforma defensora de la vida y la familia, fue "coescrito por la multinacional abortista internacional Planned Parenthood, a trav茅s de su oficina afincada en Bruselas".

Esta propuesta, entre otros puntos controversiales, propon铆a el adoctrinamiento en materia sexual, incluida la anticoncepci贸n, a menores de edades tempranas, argumentando adem谩s un supuesto "derecho al aborto" para todos.

Por su parte, Sophia Kulbo, directora ejecutiva del European Dignity Watch, se艅al贸 que "celebramos que no s贸lo el Parlamento haya abierto sus sentidos respecto a la salud sexual y reproductiva, sino que tambi茅n se ha escuchado la voz de de los 1,4 millones de ciudadanos que ya hemos firmado la Iniciativa europea Ciudadana 'Uno de Nosotros-One of Us' exigiendo una mejor protecci贸n de la dignidad humana, que se han sentido representados en la decisi贸n de hoy".
