NEW YORK, November 27 (C-Fam) – The European Commission intends to unleash a barrage of policies to impose LGBT uniformity across the European Union, including the threat of sanctions.

The powerful European Commission announced that it wants to make “hate speech” and “hate crimes” EU crimes by 2021 and to impose mutual recognition of “rainbow families” across the European Union by 2022.

The EU Commission made the announcement in its first-ever EU-wide strategy for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary, intersex, and queer (LGBTIQ) equality on November 12.

Alongside the pledge to legislate “hate crimes” and “rainbow families,” the strategy sets forth a sweeping set of social engineering measures to impose uniform LGBTIQ policies across the European Union. It also promises to ramp up EU diplomatic and foreign aid efforts to promote the LGBTIQ cause across the globe.

The strategy covers health, education, culture, sport, medical and social research, marriage, online regulation of “hate speech,” employment, and other policy areas. The target of the strategy is primary Poland, Hungary, and other Eastern European countries that have socially conservative laws and do not recognize homosexual marriage.

EU Commission president Ursula von der Leyen announced the policy at the State of the Union address at the European Parliament last month.

“LGBTQI-free zones are humanity-free zones. And they have no place in our Union,” she told EU Parliamentarians. She was attacking municipal resolutions in Poland to protect the family and children from gender ideology.

EU commissioner for Gender Equality Helena Dalli said the Commission would “make full use of the tools at its disposal” to enforce LGBTIQ equality across the world.

“Targeted actions will be combined with enhanced equality mainstreaming,” she added. Dalli imposed sanctions on Poland this summer because of the municipal resolutions against gender ideology.

Most the of the changes proposed in the strategy would not require new regulation. The commission describes the strategy as “intersectional.” It will integrate LGBTIQ issues in existing EU policies to address racism and gender equality.

They will leverage the funding the EU Commission provides to EU member states through existing EU programs and directives. And it builds on the EU Gender Equality directive, which required non-discrimination on the grounds of LGBTIQ status in employment and the ability of individuals to change their gender.

One of the initiatives that could be affected is the EU Rule of Law initiative. Non-discrimination would come under its purview. Poland and Hungary have recently vetoed the EU budget, including a joint European debt of up to $2 trillion for COVID-19 relief because the EU Commission could attach conditionality to funds based on the Rule of Law initiative of the European Union.

The objectives and actions in the strategy “radically depart form the limited competence of the organs of the European Union,” according to an analysis of the strategy by the Centro Studi Livatino, an Italian legal think tank. It described the strategy as a coercive tactic that exploits the COVID-19 pandemic to promote LGBT issues.

“They are an illegitimate intrusion in the exclusive sphere of sovereignty of EU member states,” the analysis concludes.

The European Commission denies the claims that it is overreaching. In a press release about the new strategy, it said policy areas linked to improving LGBTIQ equality are only “primarily” national responsibilities.

“The EU has an important role in providing policy guidance, coordinating actions by Member States, monitoring implementation and progress, providing support via EU funds, and promoting the exchange of good practices between Member States,” the press release said.

Young Poles defending their church against pro-abortion aggression stemming from the decision of the country's Constitutional Court to protect the lives of sick unborn babies. Photo Credit: Polonia Christiana

Since the Constitutional Court of Poland's decision on October 22nd to protect and vindicate the right to life of sick preborn children, leftist pro-abort feminists have been attacking churches, government officials and pro-lifers across Poland in a foul display of bloody-minded vulgarity.

But, we STAND with Poland. And, we PRAY for Poland.

Please WATCH this video which congratulates faithful Catholics in Poland for their pro-life example and for standing up to rioters trying to vandalize statues, churches.

We now call on all pro-lifers, faithful Christians (especially in the Polish diaspora) and pro-life organizations to SIGN this petition to encourage pro-lifers in Poland, the Polish Constitutional Court, and especially the Polish Government to remain steadfastly pro-life right now.

And we call on all faithful Polish Catholics to defend their churches and patriotic monuments!

This is the time to keep faith with generations of Polish heroes and "Be not afraid!"

This is not the time for the Government to give-in to demands from the opposition.

Stand up against the people who are attacking your churches while baying for the blood of innocent preborn children!

And, explain to your people how the Court was RIGHT to have challenged the abortion law allowing the barbaric practice of eugenic abortion.

Poland is a republican democracy, and in such a democracy, the Constitutional Court has the last say on matters of national importance.

The Polish Court has spoken, and its ruling should be respected and implemented. And, under no circumstances should the Polish Government promise to reverse this decision in law or by granting a referendum on the same.

Poland, be courageous and stand fast for Life. Don't give in to the Culture of Death!

Thank you for your example, Poland. Now, remain strong!

And, thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition of support and solidarity with the Constitutional Court of Poland's decision to disallow eugenic abortion.

Thank you also for standing with and praying for Polish pro-lifers and government officials to remain steadfastly pro-life during time of leftist, pro-abortion aggression.

After you sign and share, could you also take the time to congratulate the Polish pro-life movement for their historic victory in defense of human life, and to offer emotional and spiritual support? Please contact:
