VIENNA (LifeSiteNews) —The National Council of Austria has modified the country’s legislation on media and audio-visual content to align itself with European Union (EU) regulations, sanctions, and censorship decisions.  

“Whoever is in contravention of directly applicable EU regulations is guilty of an administrative offense and is liable to a fine of up to 50,000 euros,” reads the text of the new law, which was signed by Austrian president Alexander Van der Bellen and Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer on April 13.  

According to German news website Infosat, the aim of the amendment was to prohibit the dissemination of the Russian state media channels Sputnik and RT in Austria in accordance with an EU ban.

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

Don't allow pro-abortion leftists to pressure Supreme Court justices to change their vote to overturn Roe!

According to an initial leaked draft majority opinion allegedly written by Justice Samuel Alito and obtained by Politico, the U.S. Supreme Court has voted to overturn its nearly 50-year-old Roe v. Wade decision, which imposed abortion on demand across the country.

As reported by Politico, the opinion is “a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision."

Of course, if this decision holds, this would be the best news in decades, thanks be to God!

However, leftists in Washington and in the media will stop at nothing to prevent Roe from being overturned.

But, intimidation and threats cannot be permitted to influence the Court, especially on this most fundamental human rights ruling.

That's why - right now - it's essential to urge the High Court to PUBLISH the ruling which overturns Roe.

SIGN this petition urging the Chief Justice and all the Associate Justices to PUBLISH the decision to overturn Roe now!

The leak of a drafted opinion is unprecedented in Supreme Court history and is sending shockwaves through the legal world.

Rumors are swirling about who could've leaked this seminal ruling, and what Chief Justice Roberts and the FBI will do about it.

But, this is a distraction from the real news which is that the Supreme Court is on the verge of righting one of the worst legal decisions ever made in the United States.

Over 60 million babies have been killed in the U.S. since the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, a colossal evil that has been allowed to stand for too long.

That's why we need to tell the Members of the U.S. Supreme Court to stand strong and PUBLISH THE RULING NOW!

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition.

Some in Austria, however, have criticized this change, which they see as a violation of Austria’s sovereignty and a means to introduce EU censorship and media control through the backdoor.  

With the change of this law, the Austrian National Council quietly provided the European Union with a dangerous possibility for censorship in Austria,” Alexander Tschugguel’s St. Boniface Institute argued in a May 2 press statement.  

The St. Boniface Institute strongly condemns the amendment of the Audiovisual and Media Services Law which automatically recognizes all of the EU’s censorship decisions and will punish failure to comply with the censorship with administrative penalties of up to 50.000€,” the statement reads, adding that the amendment represents a significant violation of our sovereignty. 

The institute concluded its statement by calling for “an immediate abolition of this controversial regulation.” 

The institute’s founder, Alexander Tschugguel, took to Twitter to condemn the amendment.  

“Obviously, the official [reason] for this is that Russian propaganda media is not allowed to be spread, but we all know where this will lead to,” Tschugguel warned.  

He then compared the new legislation to U.S. President Joe Biden’s recent creation of a so-called Disinformation Governance Board, which Tschugguel referred to as a “ministry of truth,” but argued that the Austrian legislation is worse, given that “it is not the Austrian parliament that is deciding what is ok or not ok to watch but that the European Union is deciding.” 

“The Austrians just handed one of the most important aspects of political culture to the European Union,” said Tschugguel, lamenting that “the European Union now has the right to censor whatever they want without any legitimation for it.”
