    Court: No Abortion Right in Ireland, Europe, But Attacks Ban Strasbourg, France -- The Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights today unanimously reaffirmed that the European Convention on Human Rights contains no “right” to abortion. That's the good news for the pro-life movement, but the court also unanimously ruled in favor of one of the three women who brought a lawsuit saying the Ireland abortion ban violates their rights.

    Whilst it is wholly appreciated to provide legal protection to ensure that every individual has the right to observe any day of their choice for worship it is entirely inappropriate to force a doctrinal position on all Union Citizens. This matter deserves a full debate engaging all the parties concerned and in particular the minority groups so that the legal position is made clear and that the possible future religious ramifications of this proposed Legislation are considered in light of the aims and objectives of the European Union.

    Russian Court Upholds Moscow Ban on Gay Pride Parade By Peter J. Smith MOSCOW, September 5, 2007 ( - A Russian Court has vindicated the city of Moscow's decision to ban Gay Pride parades. On Tuesday Moscow's Tverskoi District Court rejected the protest filed by Pride organiser Nikolai Alekseev ruling that the ban enforced by Mayor Yuri Luzhkov and city authorities was legal under Russian law and justifiable over security concerns. Aleckseev and approximately 100 other homosexual activists including Marco Cappato, an Italian member of the EU parliament, and German MEP Volker Beck, had gathered before City Hall to protest...

    Warsaw, Poland ( -- The government in Poland may appeal a European court's ruling awarding monetary damages to a woman who claims that giving birth damaged her eyesight and she is now unable to take care of her three children. The woman was denied an abortion in 2000 and the European Court of Human Rights awarded her $52,000. Marek Jurek, of the Polish Right group, suggested Poland should appeal the ruling which he said violated rights guaranteed by Polish law, Radio Polonia reported. Jurek said the Polish government should defend the right to life of unborn children protected by law...

    PARIS, May 30 — The European Union's highest court ruled today that an agreement providing for the transfer of extensive personal data on air passengers to the authorities in the United States was illegal. The decision forces the two sides back to the negotiating table at a time when privacy safeguards are increasingly being debated. The European Court of Justice, in Luxembourg, overruled a May 2004 decision by the European Commission and the European Council, which represents national governments. The agreement, which took 18 months to negotiate and was set to last through the end of next year, gives American...

    EUOBSERVER/ LUXEMBOURG- The European Commission has scored a major victory over EU member states as the European Court of Justice annulled the decision of the Council to suspend a disciplinary procedure against France and Germany for repeatedly breaking the euro rules. In a short ruling, read out in Luxembourg, the Court said today (13 July) it "annulled the conclusions adopted by the Council in which the Council held the excessive deficit procedures in abeyance". This represents a landmark victory for the Brussels executive and affirms its role as the supervisor of EU economic policy. But there are few legal precedents...

    EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS - The European Court of Justice in Luxembourg will on Tuesday (13 July) hand down what may be the most significant ruling in its 46 year history. The case may not sound like much (Judgement C-27/04 Commission v Council), but at stake is who is in control of the EU economy - Brussels or member states. The European Commission took the Council of member states to court over its decision in November to suspend disciplinary procedures against France and Germany for repeatedly breaking EU economic rules. Brussels had recommended that France and Germany take measures to bring...
