The Constitutional Court debates this week the abortion law. As revealed exclusively by OKDIARIO, the draft of the ruling on the abortion law prepared by this court partially recognized the unconstitutionality of this text. After knowing this information, the Fundación Abogados Cristianos has denounced four magistrates of the Constitutional before the European Commission. This morning, the lawyers have filed a complaint electronically and will try to take the matter to the European institutions.
“If this draft becomes the final judgment Article 47 would be violated of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union”, explains the spokesperson for the Fundación Abogados Cristianos, Jose Maria Fernandez in an interview with this newspaper. In this way, the organization he represents has decided to file a complaint with the European Commission to paralyze this abortion law that was approved 13 years ago by the then government led by José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. The Christian foundation accepts the appeal of unconstitutionality promoted by the fifty deputies of the Popular Parliamentary Group that then made up the chamber.
In addition, the organization of lawyers denounces that there is a prejudgment by four magistrates of the Constitutional Court since they consider that “they already know the matter entrusted to them and have already given their opinion”. Among these magistrates is the president of the Constitutional Court, Cándido Conde-Pumpidoand the magistrates Juan Carlos Campo, Concepcion Espejel e Immaculate Montalban. “The four are obvious cases of abstention for having participated directly or indirectly in the elaboration of the law,” reads the complaint to which OKDIARIO has had access. Thus, the foundation of jurists has taken to the European institutions this draft of the sentence that is being prepared in the Constitutional Court and that this medium advanced exclusively.
Christian Lawyers also considers that during these 13 years that the abortion law has been in force, women have not had access to complete information about this practice. “The mothers They have not received truthful and sufficient information on abortion as assured by the Supreme Court”, explains the Foundation in a statement sent to the media.
For all these reasons, the organization of lawyers asks the European Commission to open a formal infringement procedure against Spain. In addition, the foundation requests that the community institution request information from the Constitutional Court in reference to its composition, transferring it to the Court of Justice of the European Union. «There is a lack of independence of justice in Spain and European justice must rule on this situation, “says José María Fernández, spokesman for the foundation that has denounced the four magistrates.
