(en) France: Action against Ctholic fundamentalists PRESS STATEMENT 11 JUNE 2005 [fr,it]

Date Sun, 12 Jun 2005 15:25:53 +0300

Today, 11 June 2005, about twenty militants of the SCALP group and the "Pink
Panthers" unfurled a banner and distributed leaflets during the "life parade",
a fundamentalist Catholic march. They thus showed their opposition to these
enemies of IVF treatment, of contraception, of the woman's right to decide
about their own bodies, of the right to choose one's own sexuality.
Under cover of a "festival of life", all the various pro-life Catholic
associations and groups joined together to celebrate this very vague (for the
public at large) but also very precise (for them) culture of life. Under the
cover of celebrating life, this festive march had the aim of fighting IVF
methods, contraception, euthanasia, etc., which they group together under the
label "culture of death". Behind this festive appearance, the march gathered
together all the opponents of the right to choose, of the denial to women to
decide for their own bodies, of the rights of gays and lesbians and to affirm
the sanctity of marriage and the child-producing heterosexual family as the
only possible way of life.

We refuse to abandon public space to those who want to refuse us the right to
decide over our own bodies and the right to decide our own sexuality.

Have fun, not babies!
