*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- In a couple of interesting, sharp and lively Statements, at a Crucial period for Humankind, Pope Francis slamed various attempts to artificially create Children, considered as objects on which some might have "Rights", as well as recently growing Risks to abuse of Human persons for Controversial "Experiments" and other "Tests", under pretext to exploit them for the benefit of Others. "Euthanasia" and Abortion were also criticized in the same thrust :

- " Is it a Religious problem?” No, no. It is Not a Religious problem. “Is it a philosophical problem?” No, it is not a philosophical problem. It’s a Scientific Problem, because there is a Human Life there, and it is Not Lawful to Take out a Human Life to solve a problem", he explained.  Because, "in Ancient thought and Modern thought, the word “kill” means the same thing"

 - "The Dominant thinking sometimes suggests a "False compassion", that which retains that it"  would be "Scientific Breakthrough to "Produce" a Child,  and to consider it to be a Right, rather than a Gift to Welcome; or to Use Human Lives as Guinea Pigs presumably to save others", Pope Francis reportedly denounced, according to official Vatican's sources, speaking to a gathering of Christian Catholic Doctors.

+ At the same time, while "due to scientific and technical advancements, the possibilities for physical healing have significantly increased", nevertheless, ; and yet, "in some respects it seems the ability to "take Care" of the Person has Decreased, especially when he is sick, frail and helpless", he criticized.

 - In particular, "we are living in a time of Experimentation with Llife. But a Bad experiment : Making Children, rather than Accepting them as a Gift", i.e., in short : , - "Playing with Life", Pope Francis Timely denounced.

=> "Be Careful, because this is a Sin against the Creator: against God the Creator, who created things this way", he urged, using the typical Christian metaphore which considers especialy the essentials of Human Nature as Sacred.


Already, the masterpieces of World Famous Brittish Writers Aldus Huxley ("Brave New World"), and Wells, (both inspired by the Russian dissident Eugeni Zamiatin's pioneer story "We"), had described the "Hell" that could become some UnDemocratic Societies if Centarly Plannesd, Artificial Procreations of Human Beings supplanted the Natural Births of Children by Natural Families, composed by a Man and a Woman. 



+ Many mainstream American Media, (from the CSM to the AP, etc), interpreted Pope Francis' key sayings also as a Plaidoyerie against Genetic Manipulations of Human Embryo, obviously Dangerous for all Humankind : - "He also condemned ..., in vitro fertilization (or "the scientific production of a child") and Embryonic Stem Cell Research (or "using human beings as Laboratory Experiments to presumably save others)", they wrote.


In recent years, similar Problems were raised by the Risks to submit a regular flow of Hundreds of Thousands of Artificial Procreations of Human Beings to the Power of a Technocratic Lobby, with obvious Dangers for all Humankind, if the Controversial and Unpopular "Same Sex Marriage" is spread further, sometimes even with "Adoption" of Children submitted to the Power of Homosexuals, and theatening also to Massively allow the Atrocious Exploitation of "Surrogate Mothers", added to Massive Artificial Procreations of Human Beings, via "Pre-Natal Tests", "In Vitro Fertilisations","Embryos/Sperms Banks", etc., given the Impossibility for all Homosexual couples to have Natural Births, which can only be obtained by Natural Families, composed by a Man and a Woman, (as is the case for many Thousands of Years, as long as the Human Race exists in History).

- However, "the achievements of Science and of Medicine can contribute to the improvement of human life to the extent that they are not distanced from the Ethical root of these disciplines", he warned, calling  conscious Doctors to be "Committed to live your profession as a human and spiritual Mission, as a real lay Apostolate", as he said.

Thus, Pope Francis praised, instead, those Doctors who "Love ... Life and seek to Serve it in its Dignity, Sanctity and Inviolability".

- "the Compassion of the Gospel is that which accompanies in times of Need", as "the Good Samaritan, who "provides concrete help . Your Mission as Doctors puts you in daily Contact with many forms of Suffering". I encourage you to take them on as "Good Samaritans", Caring in a special way for the Elderly, the Infirm and the Disabled. Fidelity to the Gospel of life and "Respect for Life as a Gift from God, sometimes require Choices that are Courageous and go Against the Current, which ...may become points of Conscientious objection. And this fidelity entails many social consequences.

=> In fact, "the most Effective method in Caring for the sick, would simply say: "Put more Heart into those hands." Put more Heart in these Hands! This is also my Hope", he concluded.

By doing so, Pope Francis obviously strengthens a Bridge (already launnched since Spring 2013, Comp. : ....),   towards his predecessor, Pope Emeritus Benedict's struggle, (crystal-clear mainly at his 2009 Encyclic "Caritas in Veritate" and at  a landmark Speech at the Bundestag in Berlin, September 2011, which practicaly launched a"Human Ecology" movement, but even at its Last Official "Prayer" the Day of his Retirement,  Comp. : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/lombardibundestagpopespeech.html   + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/lombardionbenedictcontacts.html , etc), with whom he doesn't hesitate to examine together certain issues, as he recently revealed to the Press, at a Timely moment, when he has just started to review a Draft on his forethcoming New Encyclic on Ecological values, (including about Human beings).

+ Meanwile, in a last minute change, the incoming Presidency of the CoE by Belgium has just anounced, during vice-Prime Minister Didier Reynders' trip in Strasbourg (Comp., his Statements to "EuroFora" at the occasion of CoE's Ministeriak Session at : ......), its intention to organize in Brussels an important PanEuropean Conference on the Ethical issues raised by a several Emerging new Bio-Technologies, from Genetics up to the Brain, etc, (See earlier INTW of CoE's BioEthical Experts Committee's - CDBI's- Chairwoman to "EuroFora").

    The recent paradox of freezing EU Talks with front-runner Croatia, while continuing controversial EU - Turkey talks, despite Zagreb's acceptance of Refugees' Human Rights to return, that Ankara refuses fex. in Cyprus, while both have "Good Neighborhood" problems vis a vis Slovenia, or Greece, Cyprus and Armenia respectively, can it be justified by the non-fullfilment of EU criteria, as Slovenia says, or, is it "Double Standards" ?    

The question became unavoidable after statements by Presidents of Slovenia and Croatia, Tuerk and Mesic, respectively, to "EuroFora", exclusively or among Strasbourg's journalists this week at the CoE, on the sidelines of its 2009 Summer University for Political Schools, which topically brought them together as successive key-note speakers.

    Comming only a few Months before EU checks Turkey's compliance to its commitments on Cyprus, etc., scheduled for December 2009, this obviously has a special importance for the coherence of EU Enlargement's principles.

     Suspension of EU Negotiations is a normal consequence in case of a Candidate Country's failure to fullfil EU Conditions, such as "Good Neighborhood relations", stressed at first Slovenian President Danilo Tuerk, current CoE's chair.

    But, regarding EU's Criteria,  there shouldn't be any "Double Standards",  reacted Croatian President Stjepan Mesic, commenting the fact that Turkey's controversial EU negotiations continue, while they were recently "freezed" in the case of Croatia, an "unquestionably European Country", which oficially accepts to respect Refugees Human Rights, contrary to Ankara's notorious refusals or reluctance.                                       

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           - "EU itself has set as a Criterium (for EU Enlargement) the "Good Neighborhood relations",  and their absence justifies the "Suspension" EU Negotiations, (f.ex. with Croatia), because of a Border dispute affecting the territorial integrity of an EU Member Country, stressed Slovenian President, Danilo Tuerk, CoE's Chairman in office (May - November 2009), speaking to Journalists in Strasbourg including "EuroFora".    

Questioned earlier what "consequences on EU's Enlargement policy" can have the "Ban on EU Membership Negotiations", imposed to Croatia, Tuerk replied that "this question comes down to the fulfillement of (EU) Criteria for membership. One has to look at each Candidate Country ., from the point of view whether it fullfils the Criteria that EU has set. One of them are Good Neighborhood Relations, I'd like to remind. And also, there are other factors, such as Justice, Home affairs, Rule of Law, and others".

    - "Now, ..Candidate Countries are at Different Levels of fulfillement of Criteria", he observed.

    - " Croatia is obviously the closest to that. I'm rather optimistic : I think that in the coming Months we'll have an opportunity to look at all these issues constructively and hopefully we'll be able to make progress". "My main concern, at this point, is the situation in Bosnia : We haven't seen enough progres domesticaly. We haven't seen enough during ..political parties within their country.We need a New Energy, a new energetic move towards the Candidature for EU membership. "Other (Western Balkan) Countries (Serbia, Montenegro, FYROM, Albania) have been making soaring Progress, and I think that they should be ready, in a few Years, for the Candidate status".

    - "As far as the Western Balkans are concerned, .. nobody should be left outside" the EU, Slovenian's President concluded, ommitting to mention Turkey's controversial EU bid.

    - "This process may be seen as Slow, but..  Slovenia has also has also been exposed to various "Booms of Slowness" in our accession period. But now we can say that the process was relatively quick, because changes which occur after becoming EU member, are quite large, and they require proper Preparations before the (EU) membership becomes a new factor, an impacting line for a new (EU) member country".

EU "Solidarity" ?

Slovenian statements made some participants from certain 3rd Countries as FYROM, etc. claim that "the Principle of EU Solidarity" would "produce a.. rising European Union Nationalism (sic !), against Non-EU Countries", as they said, asking unhappy foreign countries to form a "bloc" to exert pressure on the EU...    

But Croatian President Stjepan Mesic dismissed that, supporting "EU Integration", "after the Economy also in Political" issues, as "the achievement" of our times. In EU there is "diversity, but it's United", he stressed, "EU has to be United so that it can become a central factor of Peace" also at the surrounding areas, he replied.


Speaking later exclusively to "EuroFora", the experienced twice President of Croatia, former President of the International "Non-Aligned" movement, denounced "Double Standards" in the way EU treats recently Croatia compared to Turkey :   

 - "I think that there shouldn't be Double Standards", stressed the Croatian President, in reply to a Question comparing the freeze of EU - Croatia talks, with the continuation of EU - Turkey talks, despite the fact that Croatia is an "unquestionably European country", while Turkey's EU bid is notoriously controversial.

    Mesic was reacting to the observation that, even if he confirmed his "respect of Refugees' Human Rights to return, etc. (See infra), nevertheless, EU talks are suspended with Croatia.. While for oher, controversial candidates, who refuse to respect Refugees' Rights to return, etc., as fex. Turkey does in occupied Cyprus and elsewhere, EU negotiations continue".

    - "I believe that Croatia's accession will confirm that all European Countries who fulfill all of the Conditions and achieve European Standards, have to join the EU. There shouldn't be any Double Standards", went on to add in reply President Mesic.

    In this relation, Croatia's President found "of paramount importance", CoE's "mechanisms enforcing ECHR's judgements"
    - "On Refugees and Displaced persons, the process will be completed only after the last person demanding to return will be allowed to do so !", President Mesic Croatia stressed earlier, setting a general standard of obvious importance also for otherr candidates, as f.ex. Turkey, often accused to exclude or heavily restrict Greek Cypriot Displaced persons' return to their Family Homes and ancestral land, provoke difficulties to Turkish-Kurd IDPs return to their home regions at the South-East, etc.

    Some "2.000 People are still reported Missing" in former Yugoslavia, for some Years, (as in Cyprus, modern Europe's oldest case, for 3 Decades. Nagorno-Karabach, Tcecnya in Russia, etc, more recently), and Investigations "will only be completed after establishing the fate of the last one of them", he added.
    Speaking earlier on "War Crimes", President Mesic stressed that "Leaders are responsible for (the) Wars (of the Past), not the People", and called against Impunity :  "Individuals have to be held Responsible for Crimes. International Penal Tribunals have to persecute those individuals", perpetrators of War Crimes, he underlined.

    Such statements naturally made Mesic rather popular at ECHR, whose President, French EuroJudge, Professor Jean-Paul Costa, looked particularly smiling when he welcomed him later on Wednesday afternoon, after Slovenian President Daniko Tuerk earlier this week.



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 ?
