real_europe_against_virus_eurofora_patchwork_400


*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- After Only ...3 Infections at Beijing, China Closed Schools to Protect Hundreds of Thousands of Children Today, while, on the Contrary, Italy, after 393 Infections, plans more Tourism+, (with a Controversial Prime Minister heard by Investigators on Complaints for unjustified Deaths of Innocent People)... About 36.000 Lives would have been Saved, if USA had Started Confinement 1 Week Earlier, and around 54.000 if it had Started 2 Weeks Earlier, "New York Times" reported meanwhile, citting a Scientific Study, and this goes, even More, also Elsewhere in the World...


But what the Lack of a Real Europe provoked, when some EINOs ("Europeans In Name Only", alias "Fake Europeans"), Abandoned the People withOut Any Timely Protection (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/virusriskbutnoeuprotection.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/delaytoprotecteupeoplefromvirus.html , etc) vis a vis N.W. Italy's "Explosion" of Massive Infections, Back from February 22/23 (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/deadlyvirusheadstoeucore.html) , until "WHO" Declared a "Pandemic", with Europe at its "EpiCenter", on March 11-13, Defies any Imagination by the Volume of Tragedy...  


When some EU Measures were, at last, announced, Only towards the End of March, then, it was Obviously Too Late : An Initialy Healthy and well Warned Continent, (by China's Earlier "Wuhan" Crisis), had been Transformed into a Dangerous, Deadly Hell-hole, with Strict Home Shut-Downs everywhere, among too Many People suddenly Falling Sick and Dying around OverCrowded Hospitals, Scandalously Abandoning fragile Elders, and obliged to use Military Airplanes to Urgently Transport suffering Patients to Other Regions or even Countries !


=> It's, indeed, Still until Today (June 12) that EU+'s Area holds the World's Highest Record in Deaths by the Virus, with USA having Less than 130.000, while EU+'s Area is Bypassing with 142.700 Dead... And Belgium with France become, unexpectedly, the Top 2 Countries in the World with the Biggest Number of Dead among those Infected and Hospitalized !  In Addition, from Early March up to Late May (i.e. almost During 3 core Months) EU+'s Area has the Largest Number of Infected People in the World, (Long Before USA starts to progressively emerge on the top)...


>>> Even More Important : EU+'s Area plays a Key Role also into ... Spreading the Virus accross the World !


 - Among the First Intrusions of that Deadly Virus towards Washington DC, relevant USA Maps indicated Imports from the UK and other European Countries. While, Notoriously, the Massive Infections throughout New York's Airplane Hub, clearly came from EU+'s Area. US President Trump was among the First to see the Dnger and Stop AirFlights from the EU+, But Not Early enough...


+ Russia is also a Spectacular Case of that : During a Long Time, Russians had managed to Avoid any Virus' Infections, (with the Unique Exception of Only ...2 Old Chinese men imported at Siberia, from the Start !). Meanwhile, All Entries from China had been firmly Closed. But, Suddenly, a Long Time Later-on, Dozens of Infections intrude from EU+'s area, particularly through Leningrad, etc., Rapidly Spreading the Virus accross Various Regions of Russia... Moscow had committed the Error to Believe at a Real Europe, that would have Protected its Population, and had, therefore, Left AirFlights Open from there. When Russians realized that, in fact, a "Fake Europe" had Abandoned its Citizens to Virus' Infections, withOut taking Any Protective Measure on Time (Comp. Supra), it was Too Late...


 ++ Initially Italy (but Afterwards also France, the UK, Spain and/or Germany, etc, at Various Levels), soon Became Notorious "Super-Spreaders" of Virus, (as, f.ex., inter alia, also Some Locacious Maps, Published in several Foreign Medias, clearly Showed such Italian a.o. influence even towards Remote USA, African or Asian, Latino-American Countries, etc). Even the very Far Away ...Mongolia (sic !), which had managed to succesfully Close any Dangerous Contact with Neighbouring China, so that it had Spectacularly Avoided most Infections, Nevertheless, Suddenly, it was Surprized to Find that its 1st Infection Case had arrived from remote ...France !, (as the serious Web-Media "The Intercept" Denounced, at an interesting, Investigative Article of Wider Scope, about some Western Countries' UnExpected co-Responsibilities in this Pandemic).


-------------------------------
     => After all those Controversial Moves, which appear clearly Opposite to what a Real European Governance would have normaly done to Protect its Citizens, (Comp. Supra),


    + and while even China's Authorities, these Days (+PARTLY UPDATED), Postponed sine dies the Re-Opening of 3 School-Classes, after 3 more Infected People were found at Beijing, where also they Closed 5 Food Markets, and Locked Down 11 Neihbouring House Blocks, Following an Exceptional, 50 + 36 Infections Cases also at Beijing, the Next Days, (a Backlash never seen before, since April, i.e. 2 Months Ago)...

    ++ at the Same Time that, in EU+'s Region, all Polls (by WHO, ECDC, etc) clearly show Nowadays that a Previous Trend towards a Falling Number of Virus' Infection cases, suddenly ...Stopped, and Even Started to be Reversed (towards an Augmentation of Infections), recently,

virus_cases_europe_who_data_12_june_2020__eurofora_screenshot_400


    *** was Added also a Stern Warning by the WHO about a real Risk for that still Deadly Virus to Rise up anew, Anywhere in the World.


    >>> In Consequence, it's crystal-clear that the current situation requires Careful Moves, and Well-Thought Action by Real European Leaders sincerely motivated by the Need to Protect the People and Win the Fight for Human Life, against this Deadly Virus, striving to Solve, Not Skip, Key Issues, and Advancing Intelligently, withOut any Hasty DeConfinement Blunders.

    An "Eugenic" loophole Amendment, which might expose to Dangers reminiscent of "3rd Reich's" notorious Genetic Abuses, hidden at the last minute inside an otherwise Good, larger Health policy Package scheduled to be voted on Thursday, was strongly denounced by a coalition of MEPs from various Political Groups and Countries, in a Press Conference held this afternoon at EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

    Mainly calling to "Select Human Embryos", via "Genetic Counselling" and "pre-implantation" Techniques including "Genetic Tests", in order to "Eradicate Hereditary rare Diseases", it might open ways to Dangerous Practices in Future, they denounced in substance.

    But they also made it clear that a much larger Report inside which this Controversial Amendment "No 15" was added in dubious circumstances, officialy destinated to struggle against "Rare Diseases", and drafted by Professor Antonios Trakatellis, was otherwise "an Excellent Report", aiming at a "completely Uncontroversial target" of Health policy on which "all MEPs and Experts are united, believing that Europe should act" to protect People's Health (See "EuroFora"'s earlier News).

    The controversy came at a particularly delicate moment for the EU in relation to Citizens, at the eve of June 2009 EU Elections, and shortly before Ireland re-votes for "Lisbon Treaty"..    

- Denouncing risks of "an Eugenic demand, very similar to what we had during the 3rd Reich in Germany, but now coming from some Scientisists themselves", German ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Dr. Peter Liese stressed that critical MEPs were against "Eugenic" engineering with "Selection of Human Embryos", and anything which might ultimately lead up to to a "Selection of Human Race". It doesn't help to "eradicate" Human Lives, he added.


    Several Experts and NGOs expressed "Deep Concern", as f;ex. DR M.C. Cornel of the "European Society of Human Genetics", which stressed, on this occasion, that "the importance of Non-Directiveness in Reproductive issues is a Central characteristic of Human Genetics, after the Atrocities committed in the name of Genetics in the first half or the 20th Century".

     - "This is completely Unacceptable", stressed Italian Liberal MEP Vittorio Prodi, on the Controversial Amendment, also because pushes to "eliminate early Human Life", as he noted.

     - "This opens a Dangerous Road, rather a Motorway", denounced Danish MEP Mrs Margrette Auken, from the "Greens", observing that various similar attempts were made in the Past "not only in Germany, but also in several other Countries, "even at the 1970ies", "f.ex. on forced Sterilisation of Roma" People, and other criticisable situations f.ex. in the UK, in Sweden, etc. as she said.

    + Other NGOs, as f.ex. "LebenHilfe" from Berlin, added that, among various other Risks, could also be that, by exploiting the pre-implantation Genetic Diagnostics and the Selection of "healthy" Embryos, some may "propagate" several "Eugenic" aims, starting f.ex. by pushing to eradicate Human Livies which might "Cost too much" to preserve, ultimately exposing to dangers reminiscent of the "3rd Reich"'s atrocious abuses.

    In consequence, ChristianDemocrats/EPP and "Green" MEPs "decided by Majority to vote against" this Controversial Amendment, anounced to Journalists the 5 MEPs who participated in the Press Conference, representing a wide spectrum, from Liberals to "Greens" and ChristianDemocrats, and from Hungary, Italy, Germany and Danemark up to Ireland (Gay Mitchell), etc.
----------------------------------
    Hungarian ChristianDemocrat MEP Laszlo Surjan said "that it was "Suddenly, at the End of the Procedure" in Committee, that "appeared this (Controversial) Amendment, which has nothing to do" with the main purpose of the Report, on which all agreed.

    He denounced an "Unhonest" move, and called to "avoid this kind of unacceptable situations". Nobody should "Select People", Surjan stressed.

    - "We (MEPs) had No Chance to Discuss" this last-minute Amendment earlier added at a Committee's level, said German MEP Peter Liese

    Speaking to "EuroFora", Dr. Liese, the Spokesman of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group in EU Parliament, said that MEPs didn't oppose other references of the Report f.ex. on "Genetic Tests", because they were "no proposals" to impose them, while, on the contrary, there was "a Problem" if anyone attempted to "impose" f.ex. this or that Genetic Technique and "Genetic Counselling", etc. to the People on human reproduction.
-------------
The precise Text :
-----------------
    Controversial parts of Amendment No 15 ask mainly "to lead finally to the Eradication" of "Hereditary" "rare diseases", "through Genetic Counselling .., and ..pre-Implantation Selection of healthy Embryos".

    But  EU Rapporteur Professor Trakatellis, said to "EuroFora" that fears should be alleviated by Guarantees that all this should be done only "where appropriate", when it's "not contrary to existing National Law", and "always on a Voluntary basis", according to other Parts of the Amendment.

    He stressed that the main aim was to allow "a free and informed choice of persons involved", without imposing them anything :  - "It's not an obligatory, but advisary" text, he said.

    To make that point clear, he was ready, in agreement with many MEPs, to eventually drop at least that part of the controversial Amendment which initially called for "efforts to ..lead finally to the Eradication of those rare diseases" "which are Hereditary".

    But, until late Wednesday evening, reportedly together with many other MEPs, he stood by all the rest of the controversial Amendment, (fex. on the "Genetic Counselling" and the "pre-implantation Selection of healthy Embryos"), so that critical MEPs, going from ChristianDemocrats as Dr. Liese, to "Greens" or "Ind/Dem", observed to "EuroFora" that "this was not enough" to close the dangerous loophole.

    Particularly since, as Professor Trakatellis noted himself, "this is already allowed to the U.K.", and "other National Legislations would probably follow, sooner or later" in a similar direction. As for a general call to "Eradicate Hereditary rare Diseases", this "should happen, at any case, in practice, de facto", to protect public Health.

    On the contrary, "our goal should be to help patients suffering from rare diseases, not to eradicate the patients. In case of genetic disease risk, the decision should not be guided by scenarios" made by politicians. "Perents who may decide to accept a child, even if handicapped or with genetic disease, must be respected and supported with solidarity", critical MEPs stated.

    - "Any Pressure" to "a patient or couple (who "should be able to make an informed choice consistent with their own values"),"from health Professionals, Public Health Policies or Governemental Institutions, or Society at large, should be avoided", stresses the "European Society for Human Genetics".

----------------------------------

Each MEP's vote will be registered !

-----------------------------------   

The Socialist Group requested a "Split vote" on the Amendment 15, first without, and afterwards with the words "lead finally to the Eradication" etc.


    But the first "split vote" leaves intact all the other parts of the Controversial Amendment, (i.e. "Genetic Counselling", "Selection of healthy Embryos", etc).

    That's why, 3 Groups of MEPs : ChristianDemocrats/EPP, "Greens/EFA", and "Ind/Dem", have asked for "Roll Call Votes", on everything regarding the Controversial Amendment No 15, and on the final outcome of the resulting Report as amended, which will register all the individual positions to be taken by each MEP.   

Something which will obviously make each MEP think twice before voting for one or another choice, to be sure that he/she will make the right choice in front of EU Citizens, particularly at these pre-Election times...


    Crucial Votes were scheduled between 12 Noon and 1 p.m. local Strasbourg time, in the middle of a long series of various other Reports, and after a long Public Debate on the larger Health policy package, from 9 to 11.50 am.

    The specific Report inside which was hidden the controversial Amendment is due to be debated between 11 and 12 am.

    So that more last-minute Surprises may not be excluded a priori...

    Particularly at the present Historic moment, when even the Institutional Future of the EU depends on the result of a second Referendum on "Lisbon Treaty", later this year, in ...Ireland, a mainly Catholic country, where People are particularly sensitive in such kind of socio-cultural and values issues...
