Europes Roe Vs Wade To Be Decided Today

12.16.10 | Sarah Harnisch

  Europe's own version of Roe-versus-Wade will be decided today. It's all going on in Strasbourg, France. The Alliance Defense Fund is expecting the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights to hand down its judgment in the lawsuit A, C, and C versus Ireland.  ADF attorneys are defending legal protections for pre-born children on behalf of the Family Research Council at the European Court of Human Rights against three women who sued to have the country’s constitutional amendment protecting innocent life abolished. Because of where it's being heard, the ruling will be binding on all lower chambers and member states, making the case pivotal for Europe-- with implications that could be felt globally.
