Pro-life Catholic survives hearings on nomination as EU health minister

Catholic World News - November 15, 2012

Despite angry protests from abortion advocates, a pro-life Catholic political leader has passed through hearings on his nomination to become the European Union’s commissioner for health and consumer protection.

Tonio Borg, the deputy prime minister of Malta, faced no serious opposition at the hearings this week. Borg pledged his support for existing European treaties regarding abortion and marriage, but said that he would not change his own personal stand on those issues.

A vote on Borg’s nomination is scheduled for November 21.
