Spanish president seeking to mandate fast-track divorce in Europe, expert warns

.- The vice president of the European Network of the Institute for Family Policy, Mariano Martinez-Aedo, denounced the Spanish President Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero this week for working “to radicalize Europe,” by imposing fast-track divorce and gender ideology. Zapatero is also currently president of the European Union, a rotating six-month position among EU countries.

Martinez-Aedo lamented that while the demographic winter and the number of broken marriages is on the rise in Europe, Socialist leaders are not addressing these problems but are instead making them worse.

Citing report which highlights the goals of the EU leadership over the next 18 months, Martinez-Aedo pointed out that the document does not include any proposal in support of families or the continent's decreasing birth rate.

“When the document addresses the issue of broken marriages, it speaks of harmonizing laws on divorce and conflict, but in the sense of simplifying and facilitating the procedures, which would unify divorce in all of Europe,” Martinez-Aedo said.

Likewise, “it seeks to advance the imposition of gender ideology. Thus the document proposes that Europe and the different States mandate gender ideology,” on all their policies.
