European Commission Justified In Refusing To Propose Ban On E.U. Funding For Abortion Services, Court Rules

EURACTIV: E.U. court deals blow to anti-abortion campaigners
“The E.U.’s top court has dealt a blow to anti-abortion activists, ruling that the European Commission was justified in its refusal to propose a ban on E.U. funding for abortion services. In a ruling on Monday (23 April), the European Court of Justice stated that the ‘One of Us’ citizens’ initiative ‘cannot require the Commission to submit a proposal for a legal act.’ It added that the E.U.’s executive arm had demonstrated that ‘the ban on abortion funding would constrain the E.U.’s ability to attain the objective of reducing maternal mortality’…” (Fox, 4/24).
