The ONE OF US European Federation brought together more than 600 people in Budapest for the second European forum for life. It was placed under the high patronage of the Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán and the minister for Families, Katalin Novák.
The forum brought together Europe at the service of life: European and national politicians, associative personalities, health and ethics experts, all gathered around the theme “Protecting life: the heart of a new cultural debate”.
The forum has revived the debate on issues of life in Europe and on the strongness of values, being at the forefont of the debate the protection of vulnerable human life . The forum also sent a message of support to governments developping policies to defend human life.
During the opening of the Forum, Bence Rétvari, Hungarian Minister of Human Capacities: “I am pleased that ONE OF US has chosen our city to hold its forum. We, Hungarians,The are proud that Budapest is the capital of families … The Defense of life is one of the most important values in Europe, we have added it in the Hungarian constitution by committing a fundamental declaration upholding human dignity. For the stakes of life, you can always count on Hungary.”
Jaime Mayor Oreja, President of the UN FEDERATION, reminded us that “the crisis we are experiencing began the day abortion became a right, from there the doors were opened for the gender ideology, GPA and all those ideas that go against humanism. We are the ones who refuses to accept this situation and want to fight the roots of the crisis”.
