Ljubljana, Slovenia, Dec 9, 2021 / 04:00 am
A court ruling against a pro-life group in Slovenia delivered “a blow” to the right to free expression, a Christian legal group said Thursday.
The court held that municipal authorities did not discriminate against the group when they ordered the removal of a pro-life advertising campaign from buses belonging to a state-owned company in 2018.
“Freedom of expression is the foundation of every free and democratic society. These innocuous statements and pictures of a happy family, a grieving mother, and a woman holding a pregnancy test should not have been censored,” Portaru said on Dec. 9.
