CWN Editor's Note: The Catholic bishops’ conference of the European Union have insisted that abortion “can never be a fundamental right.”

In a statement released before a vote on the inclusion of abortion in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Union (COMECE) said that a claim for a “right” to abortion would undermine the basis of human rights. The statement added: “Promoting and facilitating abortion goes in the opposite direction to the real promotion of women and their rights.”
