Under the theme women's healthto the The European Parliament's 23 June plenary session on the state of sexual and reproductive health and rights voted on the Matic Report.
Women's healthbut the words "women" and "sex" have been replaced with genre.
The Matic Report produces Directions to be followed by the Member Statesindications that represent precise lines and constitute a 'toolbox'.interference with the jurisdiction of individual states over the management of national health systems or national health policy choices.
The report of 23 June includes the concept of gender identity: "calls on Member States [...] to amend accordingly laws, policies and practices that exclude certain groups from access to maternity, pregnancy and childbirth related care, including removing discriminatory legal and policy restrictions that apply on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity".
The report also mentions "reproductive rights"proposing to overcome the obstacles that cause "limited access to fertility treatments" and extending medically assisted reproduction: "calls on Member States to ensure that all persons of reproductive age have access to fertility treatment, regardless [...] of gender identity or sexual orientation; [...] calls on Member States to adopt a holistic, inclusive, non-discriminatory and rights-based approach to fertility, including measures to prevent infertility and ensure equal access to services for all persons of reproductive age, and to make medically assisted reproduction available and accessible in Europe'. We further read: "transgender men and non-binary people may be pregnant and should, in such cases, benefit from pregnancy and childbirth assistance measures, without being discriminated against on the basis of their gender identity".
There is also a part on the"comprehensive sexual education [...] for the benefit of young people"in primary and secondary schools.
Among the main issues in the report are the "right to abortion" to be included among human rights, by their nature inviolable. He explains Luisa Muraro at Abortion. For us feminists it is not a right: "We started from the fundamental principle of female freedom: a woman cannot be forced to become a mother, motherhood begins with a yes. But we tended to emphasise that abortion is not a right. A right always has a positive content. Abortion, on the other hand, is a refusal, a fallback, a necessity. The woman who does not want to become a mother undergoes a violent intervention on her body to eradicate this beginning of life. We thought, and still think, that if we make abortion a right, we are authorising the irresponsibility of men.".
From minority position of two female MEPs: this report
- Outside its scope addressing issues such as health, sex education and reproduction, as well as abortion and education, which are legislative competences of the Member States.
- The report treats abortion as an alleged human right that does not figure in international law, which violates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights itself and the main binding treaties, also contradicting the case law of the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union.
- The report also identifies a ideological manipulation of human rights, totwenty universal and immutable nature, through aninternational influence that erodes the sovereignty of countries, compromising their respective legislation.
- The report threatens the freedom, equality and dignity of women, going against their very nature by dissociating identity from biological sex.
- By means of a gender-focused ideological programme, the report presents an isolated and victimised woman, decoupling health from life and prioritising subjective well-being that encourages women to forego their fertility and motherhood.
From this report emerges a strong direction taken at European and international level: gender identity, gender-neutral ideology in schools, artificial reproduction.
In several countries we are seeing Proposals for legislation including gender identity and self-certification of the self and widening access to medically assisted procreation (MAP) techniques.
In Spain the Ley Trans extended gender self-certification to children under 12: parental consent is needed until 16, but if between 14 and 16 the child is in conflict with the parents you can ask for parental authority to be taken away from them and for the child to be placed in the care of a guardian. In fact, this denies parents the possibility of opposing the transition, the boy and girl are effectively taken away from their parental authority by a techno-medical system that will force its way into their lives. assessing their discomfort and difficulties and establishing the start of the transition path.
La Ley Trans also reopens access to lesbian or single women to PMA techniques under the National Health Service (which was excluded seven years ago), including for the first time also the "trans people with gestational capacity'.
La France with its new bioethics law also includes theaccess to PMA techniques for all women, double gamete donation, in vitro fertilisation with three parentsthe creation of artificial gametes and chimeric human-animal embryos that can be implanted in animals and of genetically modified human embryos for research purposes, thus paving the way for genetically modified children. *
In Italy a representative of Rainbow Families and Sinistra Italiana during a recent demonstration in Milan in support of Ddl Zan was clear: "the real objectives are self-certification of gender and the right to the uterus for rent [...] The Zan law is a forward-looking law that looks to the future". The next step is "law 40, which leaves behind single women who cannot access assisted fertilisation. We want the revision of the now antiquated law 164/82 on transitional paths (i.e. obtaining free gender self-certification). We want a season of rights in which we talk about PMA and GPA, and the recognition of the sons and daughters of rainbow families. The Zan Bill is only the beginning". (see here)
And even at the Milan Pride a representative of Rainbow Families asked for the registration in the birth certificate of the non-biological parent and 'free access to assisted reproduction techniques for all and sundry'.
We are witnessing, from many quarters, a push to erase the material dimension of bodies, sexual difference, to erase women, occupy their space and expropriate them from procreation.
Steps are being taken to stop puberty in children at an increasingly early ageto penetrate thegender-neutral ideology in schools with unicorns and neutral pronouns.
There is a push to legalise the uterus for rent, extend PMA to all, to erase the mother, the one from whom we come into the world, stating that one is born of two fathers or two mothers, and to artificialise procreation with transhuman pregnancies and artificial wombs.
The LGBTQ rights agenda has become a powerful force, its supporters are at the top of the media, academia and especially Big Business, Big Philanthropy and Big Tech. Women and their bodies in all this become a terrain of appropriation and confrontation.
But on this ground nothing can be surrendered, what is at stake is the anthropological and ontological mutation of the human being.
Transhumanist and eugenicist technocrats need to erase the biological sex of birth from infancy in order to produce a 'new sex'.neutral humanity, no longer sexual, without differences between men and women. To close the circle on control and management of the living they need to appropriating the dimension of procreation and birth. Artificial reproduction technologies, the extension of PMA, embryo selection and modification, the male motherhoodcancellation of the mother are moving in this direction, to constitute a "new".neutral and infinitely modifiable humanity.
