The European Parliament condemns the United States for the reversal of Roe v Wade… The condemnation does not make sense for this reason.

The Parliament of the European Union condemned the United States this Thursday in anticipation of the cancellation by Supreme Court Roe v Wade judgment.
The condemnation of the European allies of the United States constitutes an almost unprecedented interference in American internal affairs.
The European Parliament said the decision, which has not yet been made public, would lead to a “setback in women’s sexual and reproductive health”.
In a preemptive strike before the US Supreme Court has even had a chance to rule on the legal future of abortion, globalists in the so-called European Union parliament passed a measure on Thursday by 364 votes. against 154 (37 abstentions) to “remind” the United States that it is “vital” to maintain Roe v Wade.
“MEPs condemn the backsliding on women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights around the world, including in the US and some EU countries, and call for safe access to abortion,” lawmakers said.
Croatian Socialist MEP Predrag Matić added “The US Supreme Court’s draft opinion is a shock and a nightmare. »
The resolution also targeted some US states for introducing limits on access to abortion, such as Texas, which under its heartbeat law banned abortions after six weeks, when babies unborn begin to develop their own distinct heartbeat. »
This condemnation doesn’t make much sense, as Europe’s abortion laws highlight the fact that the United States is alone in the Western world in having extremely permissive abortion laws. In Europe, most countries only allow abortion on demand up to 12 weeks.
Narrow exceptions are generally provided after 12 weeks, especially if the pregnancy poses a threat to the life of the mother.
According to Roe v. Wade, states can regulate abortion only after the point of viability, which begins at 24 weeks. Europe’s condemnation of the United States rings hollow and reeks of virtue.
