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. Imre Téglásy:

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.” (...)
