“The debates about Poland and the alleged violation of the rule of law are an evergreen topic in this parliament. But this debate today is itself an attack on the rule of law. It starts with the fact that we are discussing something for which the European Union has no competence, namely the abortion law of the sovereign state of Poland. It continues with the fact that MEPs think that they have to deny the legitimacy of Poland’s legitimate constitutional court because they don’t like its decisions. Yes, that’s the way it is in court. You don’t like some of its decisions. And all this [debate] is a joke, because there is no fundamental right to abortion. There is also no human right to abortion. But there is a human right to life, and that includes unborn life.”
