Council of Europe Rejects Petition

On Friday, October 2, 2015, while the petition against neonatal infanticide was reaching 224,000 signatures, the Bureau of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe rejected the petition by a majority, arguing that investigating and debating on this subject would be politically inappropriate. The Bureau followed the opinion of the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights which considered the petition to be “too sensitive” politically and susceptible to “divide” the Assembly.
