BUDAPEST, April 5, 2013 (HLI Worldwatch) - Dozens of young Hungarian
pro-lifers broke out in song and dance in the middle of Budapest’s main
square on Thursday to support the “One of Us” campaign to protect life
from conception across Europe.
From Human Life International’s (HLI) country director in Hungary Dr.
One of our partner organizations Together for Life (Együtt az Életért)
organized the flash mob at the main square of Budapest, called Széll
Kálmán tér, to support the ‘One of Us’ campaign. Young people between the
ages of 14 and 35 were dancing in the square in front of the metro
station to call attention to this initiative. So far we have collected
7,400 signatures in Hungary via the Internet and on paper, but we need to
collect many more.
The “One of Us” campaign is being supported and organized by several
nations in the European Union (EU). Its goal is to see all human life
protected from the moment of conception in Europe, with a particular
emphasis on those pre-born children who are vulnerable to exploitation
via research, but organizers admit that complete protection of life from
conception may not be achievable through the laws of the EU.
Josephine Quintavalle of “One of Us” in the United Kingdom explains: “We
can raise a European level legislation, not to give absolute defense to
the human embryo, unfortunately, but to prevent any destructive patenting
or scientific application or use of the human embryo. So, that’s the
essence of this. It’s a big vote in defense of the right to life of the
embryo, of the humanity of the embryo, to state that the human embryo is
not just some body tissue. It is a human being.” (...)
