*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)...

     The High-Tech, brand new Crisis' management Center (CMC) inaugurated Wednesday by French Minister Bernard Kouchner, fits well EU's Humanitarian and Security-Defence aims, revealed a gathering of the largest Group of MEPs (EPP) organised in Paris these days, to prepare the debate on French EU Presidency's priorities (July - December 2008), that President Nicolas Sarkozy will present next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

        Due to face a large spectrum of Crises : from Humanitarian (f.ex. Natural Catastrophes, evacuation of Civilians or rapatriation of expats, populations exposed to Hunger and/or risky Sanitary conditions, etc), to various consequencies of Terrorist threats, Armed conflicts, or of Peace-keeping operations, etc, and joining Geopolitics with Diplomacy, CMC is able to deal with urgencies in real time anywhere in the world, by concentrating qualified Experts and impressive High-Tech equipment (i.e. Giant Computer Screens working in parallel, Visio-conferences, Satellite connections, etc).

        Kouchner stressed that "Humanitarian and Political considerations can co-exist in real practice, if each one respects its independence", and, speaking to EuroFora, underlined his intention to have special representatives in "Strategic" locations, creating a "Network", open particularly to European cooperation.

        - "We must fill the gap in Europe's Civilian and Military capacities", declared earlier at Matignon, French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, while EU Commissioners met with their counterparts among French Ministers.

        This point was at the focus of European People Party's "'Study Days" in Paris, from 2 to 4 July 2008, entitled  : "For a Safer Europe", with a central Debate on EU's Security and Defence policies, where EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering, French Minister of Defence Herve Morin, and the Chairman of EU's Defence Committee, MEP Karl von Vogaw, spoke before meeting with Sarkozy, Wednesday afternoon.

    - "We need specifically European systems, including, f.ex. Satellite networks, etc", stressed the experienced Chairman Karl von Vogaw, speaking after the meeting with President Sarkozy to European Journalists from EuroNews, EuroPolitique and EuroFora.
    - And there where "European forces are already gathered, (f.ex. in Cyprus, Balkans, Lebanon, etc), if new operations started, I'd prefer to see them under European command in Future", he added, in reply to questions on how to overcome problems raised by a 3rd Countries as Turkey.

    Vogaw presented earlier, at EPP's plenary, a comprehensive Report on EU's Security and Defence policy, with a strong High-Tech component (including Satellites, UAV, protected Telecoms, Strategic Air and Sea Transports, Space assets, etc), sharp references to Political will and Historic necessities, while also stressing that EU must overcome the divide between Civilian and Military research and activities, making "a close cooperation between Civilian and Military means" a "specific" mark of Europe.

    The experienced Top MEP, after helping to build the "EuroZone", as a long-time Chairman of EU Parliament's Economic Committee, has recently started to chair a brand new "Security and Defence Committee", aiming to build European Defence, as the 2nd task of his life, as he told earlier to EuroFora.

     The Committee, chaired by Vogaw, will hear, next week in Strasbourg an Experts' view about on the French EU Chairmanship's priorities in ESDP on Wednesday, before President Sarkozy's plenary debate, exceptionally on Thursday.
