The European Commission is exerting ideological pressure on member states to impose the LGBT agenda in Brussels, according to Ernő Schaller-Baross, an MEP for Fidesz, the ruling party of Hungary’s prime minister Viktor Orbán.
“If we look at recent events, it is regrettable to see that the EU institutions have been busy creating an EU gender strategy to promote LGBT lifestyles, even in the midst of the pandemic crisis,” writes the Fidesz MEP in an opinion piece published this week in Mandiner and picked up by Hungary Today.
“However, it is even more outrageous that in the midst of the current war and the energy crisis that is affecting the whole of Europe, a proposal is being made to make the recognition of adoption rights for same-sex couples mandatory for all member states”, he adds.
In December 2022, the European Commission proposed the introduction of a European parental certificate, to ensure that a person who is a parent in one member state is recognised as a parent in any other, Schaller-Baross recalls.
“This proposal would therefore oblige, on the basis of the right of free movement and residence, to recognise parental status and grant the rights deriving from it within the European Union, even in cases – and especially, according to the explanation in the memorandum of the proposal – when the child is adopted by parents of the same sex,” explains the Hungarian MEP.
“This legislation could be one of the biggest successes of the LGBT lobby and the European left in recent years, as it will result in a pan-European parental status that meets all their ideological expectations,” Schaller-Baross stressed.
“Therefore, while Brussels is trying to make the public believe that it is in the interest of children to impose mandatory recognition of adoption for same-sex couples or even polygamous marriages other than the European family model, it is using children to impose LGBT and transgender ideology on member states,” she added.
According to the MEP, “the position of the Hungarian government on this issue is clear. We will not cede to any body in Brussels the right to decide on the question of what a family is. The protection of our children is our priority and we will not compromise on this issue.
