Nope, you don’t have a right to abortion either.
Through its various rulings, the Court explicitly declared that abortion is not a right under the Convention - there is no right to have an abortion:
**CASE OF A, B AND C v. IRELAND
(Application no. 25579/05)
16 December 2010
In the case of A, B and C v. Ireland,
The European Court of Human Rights
E.** The Court’s assessment
**1. Whether Article 8 applied to the applicants’ complaints
- The Court notes that the notion of “private life” within the meaning of Article 8 of the Convention is a broad concept which encompasses, inter alia, the right to personal autonomy and personal development…
213. The Court has also previously found, citing with approval the case‑law of the former Commission, that legislation regulating the interruption of pregnancy touches upon the sphere of the private life of the woman, the Court emphasising that Article 8 cannot be interpreted as meaning that pregnancy and its termination pertain uniquely to the woman’s private life as, whenever a woman is pregnant, her private life becomes closely connected with the developing foetus. The woman’s right to respect for her private life must be weighed against other competing rights and freedoms invoked including those of the unborn child (see the judgment in Tysiąc, cited above, § 106, and Vo, cited above, §§ 76, 80 and 82)…Article 8 cannot, accordingly, be interpreted as conferring a right to abortion…
This judgment, which is binding in 47 nations, was a clear pro-life victory and major setback for the pro-choice lobby that wanted the case to become a European version of US Supreme Court’s ‘Roe vs. Wade’ decision. The ECHR refused to give it to them.
In addition to these clear statements, the Court, in Maria do Céu Silva Monteiro Martins Ribeiro v. Portugal, declared inadmissible an application claiming a right of access to abortion on demand against the national legislation, which was deemed too restrictive by the applicant.
I hope this will make Americans reflect on their own legal system and ask themselves: is the USA really superior to “godless” Europe with our “social democracies” and “welfare states”?
The US Supreme Court has declared both ‘gay marriage’ and ‘abortion’ to be “rights”; the ECHR (not part of the EU) and the ECJ (the EU Court) have both pointedly refused to do so.
(To be fair to the USA though, Canada is by far the worst offender).
