Human rights just keep rolling: EU Parliament Votes To Establish Europe-Wide Right to Abortion . The resolution is non-binding, but nonetheless indicative. One interesting point is that it relies on The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) for the legal framework justifying assertion of the right. According to the only reference to the vote I could find in the major media or wire services, “Politicians in Poland have reacted angrily to” (i.e., the Polish parliament’s European affairs committee has rejected) the measure. So Europe is not yet quite dead, at least outside the EU heartland.
