Keeping up on European news

Pat Buckley's European Life Network blog is a good source for news about Europe from a pro-life perpective. He has an excellent article on World Population Day in which, as he points out, the emphasis is on depopulation "and consists of a cynical exercise in scare-mongering."

The other day, he linked a speech made in Lisbon by Kathy Sinnott, MEP for Ireland South explaining why Ireland voted "No" to the Lisbon Treaty. She spoke of the uneasiness in Ireland at seeing its democracy eroded, and of the failure of European Parliament, Council and Commission to uphold the sanctity of human life, and voices calling for a "right" to abortion and euthanasia.
