STRASBOURG, France (LifeSiteNews) — A French member of the European Parliament (MEP) has come out strongly against her colleagues for voting on gender neutral bathrooms in the middle of an international crisis triggered by the war in Ukraine.
Annika Bruna, an MEP for the French nationalist party Rassemblement National (RN), posted a video on Twitter Thursday, accusing MEPs at the European parliament of wasting the taxpayer’s money by spending their time discussing gender ideology and gender-neutral bathrooms rather than the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
“As war rages in Eastern Europe, as the consequences of the pandemic are felt everywhere, as the price of gas reaches records high, and inflation looms, the EU parliament talks about its bathrooms,” she said.
Bruna was referring to a text circulated in parliament regarding the design of the EU parliament’s bathrooms, which was the object of a vote among EU MEPs on Wednesday.
Specifically, the vote was about assessing the necessity to adapt the bathrooms to “other genders” and put in place “gender-neutral” bathrooms.
“Hasn’t the EU parliament got anything better to do, do we not have anything better to do with the taxpayers’ money than to re-design the parliament’s bathrooms to make them gender-neutral?” asked Bruna rhetorically. “With the other members of the Rassemblement National we think that there are much more pressing matters to address for the French people and the European people.”
We must pray for peace at this time where war has broken out between Russia and Ukraine.
This sudden escalation in hostilities, since Russia declared support for the independence of two ethnic-Russian parts of Ukraine, is tragic.
We must pray for an end to the armed conflict and that it does not devolve into world war.
Please SIGN this PRAYER PLEDGE FOR PEACE, and pledge to pray for peace in Ukraine now.
Thousands have already died, lost homes and are suffering the ravages of war. The only real peace comes from Jesus Christ and in Him alone can we find truth and true peace.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this PRAYER PLEDGE FOR PEACE.
*To fulfill your pledge, please recite any prayer of your choosing, like the Our Father, the Hail Mary, the Gloria, the Holy Rosary, or any prayer in your own words, to God for a peaceful resolution to this conflict.

The European Union is well known for being a staunch activist of so-called gender rights and LGBT rights, often at the detriment of some of its own member states.
Last year, Poland and Hungary were both in the EU parliament’s line of fire for refusing to get on board with LGBT ideology.
