Gender lobby endorsed censorship of pro-life speech and promotion of LGBTQIA+.
World leaders at the G7 summit in France have rejected calls to include “abortion language” in its final communiqués, which would have included supporting abortion without limits and censoring online pro-life content deemed “misleading.”
The Gender Equality Advisory Council (GEAC) told the elite body in Biarritz on August 25 to remove all legal safeguards and allow abortion up to birth, taking as a model Canada’s extreme abortion law that allows “abortion by law without specific legal specifications on gestational limits.
GEAC urged the leaders of the world’s seven largest advanced economies to enact a French-style law prohibiting so-called “misinformation on abortion when it aims to intentionally mislead women on abortion.
The French law of 2017 punishes pro-lifers with a two-year prison sentence and a fine of 30,000 euros for attempting to prevent an abortion by providing electronic or online information or “by exerting moral and psychological pressure,” making it “a crime of obstruction to the voluntary termination of pregnancy.”
Catherine Robinson, spokesperson for Right to Life UK, told Church Militant:
Such a law is a clear and insidious attack on freedom of expression in general and pro-lifers in particular. The law is worded so broadly that it could be used to prevent almost any form of communication, online or offline, that might dissuade a woman from having an abortion.
She added, “The GEAC to the G7 — as an example of good practice to promote gender equality — explicitly and approvingly invoked a French law which appears to criminalize expression of moral disapproval of abortion in an attempt to dissuade someone from having an abortion.”
