Right to Science
We call for the full application of the right “of” and “to” science as foreseen by the UN: i.e. the right to enjoy the benefits of scientific progress and its applications, the right to access scientific knowledge, as well as the right to participate in scientific development without arbitrary or ideological restrictions, and the duty of States to take all necessary steps to ensure the conservation, the development and the diffusion of science and culture.
Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights
We call for better information about sexual and reproductive health rights, freer access to contraception (reimbursed by the State), and abortion. The EU should support proper information campaigns to ensure that women worldwide can pursue pregnancies only if, when, and how they wish to do so. The EU should also collaborate with the competent UN agencies to provide an ample supply of contraception methods, including and particularly in rural areas.
We call for the full application of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, including all measures necessary for the knocking down of all architectural barriers in public and private buildings, including in commitments with third countries.
End of Life Decisions
We call for the full recognition of end of life decisions – including living will, medically assisted dying and euthanasia – on the part of mentally capable adults, a key part of the fundamental right to health.
Diversity in STEM
We call for active actions supporting enhanced diversity in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The EU should promote the inclusion of women in STEM professions and ensure equal opportunities in all phases of career progression.
