*Reichstett/Angelo Marcopolo/
- Amidst the ReVitalizing Oxygen of Green Landscapes at the beautiful Alsacian Village of Reichstett near Strasbourg, looking at the Direction of EU Parliament and CoE straight Ahead at a Bird's Fly, and praised by mainstream Strasbourg Politicians, (including the New Head of French Regions, former Minister, Philippe Richert), for his "Experience, Energy, Capacity and Faithfulness" as they said, the Chief of the main Opposition Party in France, and former President of the Country, Nicolas Sarkozy, an original ChristianDemocrat/EPP, Strongly Bounced Back to his favorite Popular context and Big, "Hot" issues, Focusing Now on Freedom to Debate, People's decisive role, Identity and Assimilation of Migrants, Security and Fight against Terrorism, Boosting Economy and reDynamizing Politics, Concluding by the Urgent Need for New Foundations to Europe, and a Human touch.


 - "I Refuse for Debates to be Muzzled, Silenced or Prohibited !", he Strongly stressed from the outset, (on one of the Rare Key-Points where he didn't Change Oraly his Draft Speech), launching a Call for the People "Not to let anyone Steal your Debates !", and pleading for a Right to Speak for "People's Sovereignity".


This goes, at an immediate term, naturaly for the Current "Primary" Votes inside each Big Political Party before the forthcoming, Crucial 2017 French Presidential Elections (April/May Next Year), but also for eventual National or Eurepean "Referendum on Major Issues of concern to the People", as he said, by a Timely Coincidence, speaking just 1 Day After a World-Famous Hungarian Referendum, by popular Prime Minister Victor Orban (another ChristianDemocrat/EPP) on Sunday, (where he Succeeded to get the support of a much More Greater percentage of Registered Voters, than even EU and/or USA Leaders : See the Facts at ......), while, on the Contrary, in France, the current, outgoing Socialist Government has just Prohibited even a Mayor to make a Popular Referendum in order to Give a Chance to the Local Population to Express its Opinion on an Attempt to relocate, near their Family Homes, Childrens' Schools, etc., a Disproportionate Number of Irregular Migrants from far away Africa and/or Asia, relocated from the notorious "Calais' Jungle", at the Franco-Brittish Borders.


But, possibly also on "Family, a fundamental Institution of our Society, to which many People are strongly attached", he added, (after various, notoriously Popular Struggles to Defend Natural Family and/or Natural Birth and Raising up of Children, against some Controversial and more or less UnPopular attempts to Impose "Same Sex Marriages" and/or Subordination of Children to the Power of Homosexuals on Pretext of "Adoption", often added to the Atrocious "Surrogate Mothers'" Exploitation of Women, and/or to Artificialy "assisted" Births, controlled by Technocrats, with obvious Dangers for all Humankind, as several, still unfolding, recent Events attest, both in Europe and at the USA, etc., (including even a Recent Clash between Pope Francis and a French Minister about denounced attempts to Impose a so-called "Gender Theory" upon School-Children, etc).

- In Wider Terms, "the current (Political) Left, has Betrayed the Workers !", the French Political Leader denounced, (touching upon an obviously "Hot" Point, on which even the American GOP Party Candidate for the Crucial, forthcoming US Presidential Elections, Donald Trump, notoriously Evoked at his landmark Inauguration Speech, Earlier this Summer, at the Republican Party's National Convention, Back on July 2016, at Cleveland, Ohio, tackling Hillary Clinton from her "Left" side, after Sanders' dismissal by the Dems Party Establishment in Controversial Conditions as "Wikileaks" revealed : See "Eurofora"s NewsReport at ....).


Unpredictably Bouncing at the Right Spot, while Entering a Meeting Room (Symbolicaly located at the Local "Sports Center"..., and placed under the Banner "Reichstett Loves Sport !", by its Athletic Mayor, Georges Schuler, New Secretary General of Strasbourg's "Republicans"), Sarkozy suddenly made a Surprize Move, Turning Right in Front of an astonished "Eurofora", among collegues Journalists and many People, Saluted those present, and rushed Back to the Officials' lounge, before getting on the podium.


He was very much Applauded when he praised the People for being "Proud" of their "Identity and (Historic) Roots" at their Land, as he said, before Speaking in favor of a Cultural "Integration" and "Assimilation" of Migrants who wish to Stay in their Host Country in Europe, fustigating f.ex. some excessive "Provocations by a Political Islam", (as, f.ex. a recent Multiplication of "Burquas" ostensibly placed in Public Spaces, Women Obliged to bear "Burkinis" even while Bathing at the Sea (to the point that even Young Children aged only 14, Boys and Girls, were Violently Aggressed by Adults with Clubs and Knives just for Taking a Photo of such an unprecedented spectacle, recently Imported and Imposed at their Home City at Corsica Island, etc), instead of "an Islam of France" or European. If somebody went to the USA like this, he/she would have been Immediately Send Back, he pointed out, Pleading also for "Women's Rights".


Sarkozy also Vowed to Strongly "Fight against those Barbarians of the Islamic State's" (ISIS') Butal Deadly Terrorism, speaking after an Unprecedented Series of Mass Killings, even of Innocent Civilian People, Women, Elders and even Children included, during this Summer 2016, in several European (and even USA) States, including France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the UK, etc. - "In this War that they have Declared, it will be Us, or Them !", he Firmly reiterated anew, Calling to Stripe from "Double Nationality" and take Security Measures against those for whom there are Serious Grounds to be Suspected as "Jihadists", systematicaly use "Jihadist Propaganda Websites", and have even Prepared to Go Become themselves Jihadists, (f.ex. towards ISIL's HQ at Syria/Iraq, etc. via Turkey a.o., as  had done, f.ex., those Violent Terrorists who cowardly Murdered even an Old Christian Priest recently, inside the Historic, 13th Century Church of Saint-Etienne du Rouvray, as well as Many Other ISIS' inspired Killers of other Innocent Civilian People this Last Summer).


On Europe, inter alia, Sarkozy Criticized those who "still raise the Question of Turkey's (controversial and unpopular) EU bid, even after the UK went Out" after the Recent BREXIT Vote, and Clearly Confirmed his Famous position that "Turkey belongs to Asia Minor, and has No Vocation to Enter inside the EU !", strongly Applauded by the People.


He also Promissed, Today, that, if re-Elected, he will "Go Immediately, on May 6 (2017) to Berlin", in order to Propose, together with German Chancellor Angie Merkel, to Sign a Franco-German Initiative for a New EU Treaty. (In this way, he notoriously expects, also, too eventualy Invite new British Prime Minister Theresa May, to consider eventualy for the UK to re-Join, later-on, a Brand "New Europe").

EU's main Competences should be Focused only on certain Key Areas, such as, f;ex., Agriculture, Scientific/Technological Research, Industry, Energy, Trade, etc., giving "the rest to the (EU Member) States", while, on the Contrary, €urozone Countries (where, as it's well known, any Willing EU Country is Able to Join, whenever it becomes Ready) should get a Strong Governance f.ex. by a Presidency, where core EU Countries such as France and Germany, etc., are naturaly due to assume their Responsibilities and become more Active, in the foreseable Future. (A Plan whose main points Sarkozy had HighLighted initialy, after an Hour-Long previous Exchange with Chancelor Merkel, at a landmark Speech in the Adenauer Foundation at Berlin, as Early as since February 2014 already, at the Invitation of Experienced, former EU Parliament's President, Hans Gert Poettering.


Despite of a Basic reminder of EU's Franco-German ReConciliation and close Cooperation's positive input, mainly by Ensuring Peace for Many Decades in Europe, and another Call for "a New Shengen", since "the Old Shenghen has Collapsed", as he said, nevertheless, probably for Time Restraints, given an Exceptionaly OverLoaded EU and CoE Agenda in Strasbourg these 2 Weeks, Sarkozy didn't, Now, Advance Further on his Views and Intentions about purely European issues, (even if Strasbourg's "Great East" Region's President, Philippe Richert, had earlier Topicaly Reminded the former President of France -and, then, even of the EU-  World Famous Move, already Back on 2008, during the Georgia - Russia Crisis, to immediatelt Fly to Moscow and Tbilisi, meeting and negotiating with the Presidents of Both embattled then Countries, and Succeeding at least to Bring Peace, "Contrary to what Happened, later on 2014, with Ukraine", as he observed, while mutualy Negative, controversial EU/USA "Sanctions" vis a vis Russia, Destructions, Economic Problems, Divisions and even People Killed (including, still, Civilians, even if Less than Back on 2014-2015, perdure at Ukraine's pro-Autonomy Regions of Donetsk-Luhansk), to the point that a New Quadripartite, France - Germany - Russia - Ukraine Summit is currently prepared for an eventual meeting asap.

    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...
