*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- A very "Tricky" CoE Report, Debated and Voted Tomorrow, on the "Hottest" BioEthical Issue: that of "new  Genetic Technologies" that could be "used" (sic!) "in Human Beings", with notorious Risks for all Humankind in case of possible Abuse, despite some False,  superficial Appearances, contains, in fact, so Many and Big "Loopholes", even  indirect but real Attempts to ...Impose them, that, instead of "Protecting" Humanity, as it claims, on the contrary, it thrreatens to slyly Doom it !


The Time Deadline for Tabling written Amendments Ending Today (Wednesday) Afternoon, in a few Hours (17h), this Note is obliged to be Short, (and should be UpDated Later-on) :


- In fact, that Draft Asks Only to "Ban a Pregnancy with GermLine Cells (transmissible to Next Generations), or Human Embryos having undergone Intentional Genome Editing", as it says.


=> But, it curiously leaves Open any Other Genetic Manipulation, even if it might have ...Life-long Effects !


+ Moreover, Even if it might be Transmissible to Next Generations, such a Genetic Manipulation is Accepted, if Critics canNot Prouve that it is "Intentional"...


++ Going even Further, its Author Repeatedly Claims, vaguely, that "Recent Technologies ... related to Human Genome" would have big "Potential Benefits" (sic !).


However, it's also a Fact that, even More than 8 Years Later, towards the End (October) of 2017, despite many Millions $ spend, there is Not yet Any Major Medical Breakthrough to mark since the Early (March) 2009 Decision of Obama to Lift the Prohibition of Federal Funding for Projects using Genetic Manipulation of Human Embryos, (that former US President GWBUsh had OutLawed Shortly before 9/11, in the Middle of August 2001).


+Going even Beyond that, it also Asks a CoE's  "Recommendation", and/or "Legal Framework", explicitly Authorizing (i.e., in brief : Imposing) such "New Genetic Technologies"...


For the rest, that Controversial Draft speaks also about some undetermined "Public Debates", etc., before Final Decisions, (which seem to arrive Soon, given that "New [Genetic] Technologies are Developing very Rapidly", as it warns.

PACE's vice-President, Experienced mainstream MEP Valeriu Ghiletchi told us that the overall line due to be followed Tomorrow by 5 critical Amendments due to be tabled asap, would be, mainly, to "Defend the (CoE's 1998) Oviedo Treaty" on BioEthics.


But, when it had been Drafted, back on 1997 at the CoE in Strasbourg, "Eurofora'"s co-Founder remembers well that the 2 German Experts participating in that huge Collective endeavour, had, astonishingly, Left that Meeting Shouting, and run to Alert the Journalists working in the CoE that the adopted Text for that particular version of the BioEthical Convention had Big Loopholes on Dangerous Issues, (f.ex. Human Embryo,  well Informed Acceptance, etc.) and should be Rejected. That's why Germany,, and some Other Countries had Refused to sign then...


As for the MEP who Drafted that Nowadays Report,  Petra de Sutter, a Socialist from Belgium, she has become Notorious for provoking, Earlier, a Strong Popular and MEPs' Protest against a Previous Report she had Drafted, also alone, on anOther BioEthical Issue (including "Gender", etc), resulting in a Referal Back to Committee and afterwards in Strong Amendments.


But, this Time, such an even much More Important BioEthical Issue was, apparently, treated rather Superficially, behind Closed Doors of an obscure Social and Health Committee Meeting, back on April 2017...


... I.e., by another "Coincidence", almost Precisely at the very Moment that an UnPrecedented Harassment started against the then President of CoE's Assembly, ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Pedro Agramunt, under various Other Pretexts, in order to make him ...Resign, exactly when that Controversial Report is now going to be Debated and Voted by that Assembly : October 2017 !


+In Addition, at the Same Time, his Group: that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, traditionaly Interested in BioEthical Issues, was, suddenly ... Divided by 2 Different Candidates for Agramunt's Succession, inevitably Weakening and/or Diverting the Attention of that Group Elsewhere, at the most Crucial moment...

 

Meanwhile, the only Public Debate and Vote on such a "Hot" and Controversial Issue of great and Topical Importance for all Humankind, was Scheduled on PACE's Agenda just After several among the Most Important Reports of this Autumn 2017 Session, such as : on ISIS' Crimes against Humanity, an Exceptional Top Level Meeting between CoE's Committee of Ministers and MEPs on Russia, the recent and still on-going Developments on Catalonia's attempts for Secessionism, Ukraine, etc. : I.e. after many obvious Mediatic HeavyWeights... Moreover, on the Top of all this, was even Added, immediatly afterwards, also  Debate against so-called "Discriminations" of ..."Trans-Gender" individuals, (which currently Rocks amidst the Anti-Trump Establishment from Calif ornia up to Wash.DC) !

So that, for any Journalist, eventually ambitioning to at least Follow, and if possible Cover seriously for the Press, all those Topical Debates and Votes scheduled for Today up to 8 o'clock p.m. at the Evening, almost at the Same Time as the above-mentioned Crucial BioEthical Issue for all Humankind, (Comp. Supra), he should, apparently, have already become a ... "Mutant", (or, Otherwise, he would be obviously Hindered, in real Practice)...

    - "Europe must be liberated from this undermining "wooden talk" of a "unique thought" which hampers democratic debates", stressed incoming EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking to Journalists after his official meeting with EU Commission's President, Jose Barroso, at Elysee Palace in Paris

    - "It's precisely because there are not enough Debates, that EU hasn't managed yet to make it clear to European citizens what is really at stake", he added, in an obvious reference to the latest Irish "No" in 2008, after a long series of similar, unprecedented events, from the 1st Majority Abstention to EU Parliament's Elections in 1999, repeated in 2004, to the Dutch and French "No" in 2005, etc.

          In fact, "there is no time to lose for Europe, and that's why we decided to start the French EU Presidency right away, from the first day", he explained, on France's exceptional choice to schedule the usual meeting with EU Commission from the 1st day of the 1st month, instead of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th or even 10th or 11th, as it had been done by others in the Past..    


    - "This is not an easy period, but we shall act with determination, while also listening to Citizens' views", he promised.

    Sarkozy's move came shortly before his opening Speech, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, for the first Public Debate on the Priorities of the French EU Presidency (July - December 2008), and that's one of the reasons for which he significantly opened his EU Council's Chairmanship by welcoming at Elysee palace EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering at first..

    The incoming EU Chairman was replying to Press Questions about rumours that controversial British EU Commissioner on Trade, Mandelson, was alone to drop an invitation to have a working Diner at Elysee palace, together with all other EU Commissioners and the French Government, only because he would have been upset for some critical points made earlier by President Sarkozy in defense of European Agriculture vis-a-vis its Foreign competitors.

    But, as smiling Sarkozy played down Mandelson's reported refusal to debate, saying that he had to visit Marseille for a Ministerial meeting on Trade the next morning, and that "all our British friends are always welcome to taste a nice diner" in France, perhaps at another occasion..

    - "It's urgent to win anew the trust of the People" : Lately, "the European ideal lost its momentum. Since several years, whenever Citizens are questioned on Europe, they react with reserves : They even have .. a tendency to reply "NO".. After this 3rd "No" of a People in some years, there is an Urgency to convince", added French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, after a meeting earlier the same day of all Ministers with EU Commissioners, followed by an interview with Barroso

    "According to recent Polls, only 30% of French people believe that the European construction is a source of hope. It's only a poll, but we all now quite well, that, since 2005, it's dangerous to neglect these alarming signals, as it would be dangerous to treat with contempt the Irish "No", Fillon warned.

    "We all have a common duty to prove to the European Citizens who have doubts, that EU is more useful, more necessary, than ever" : And "that EU can take decisions needed in order to respond to European or Global challenges", the Prime Minister concluded.

    - "We believe, together with President Sarkozy, that EU should open debates on all issues of direct, concrete interest to Citizens", confirmed later to EuroFora the Head of France's governing party (UMP), Patrick Devedjan, after his speech to the European People's party (EPP) Study Days in Paris (2 - 4 July 2008).

    He didn't deny that one of them is Turkey : - "Public Opinion in France is very much unfavorable to Turkey's EU bid, and President Sarkozy has said that several times", he told EuroFora.

    From European Central Bank's controversial policies on Euro's value, to EU Enlargement Strategy, etc., issues of obvious importance to EU Citizens will be plenty, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, before President Sarkozy launches the debates on EU 2008 French chairmanship's priorities on Thursday.

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
