Emmanuel Macron has been re-elected president of France. Leaders rejoice despite the fact that his victory was not exactly overwhelming: in fact, the president garnered 18.7 million votes, equal to 58.55% of the votes cast, against the 13.3 million, which makes up 41.45%, collected by his rival Marine Le Pen, the “populist” who has almost the entire mainstream population against her.
Therefore, it cannot be a detail which leads us to take a look back at all the measures taken by the Macron administration which evidently have not made him exactly “popular” in the eyes of the people, especially to the extent that he does not show attention and interest in the concrete problems of the French. Cahiers de doléances, those of his people, rather set aside by his political agenda, which, in recent years has turned out to be a “model” that seems to have regard only for the alleged “rights” of the abortion lobby and LGBT+ ideology.
A perfect heir of the Socialist François Hollande (who in 2004 approved gay “marriages”), Macron, perhaps precisely because of the pending presidential elections, after banning parent schools and homeschooling at the beginning of the 2021 school year, and under the guise of wanting to avoid the danger of Islamic radicalization, but in fact trampling on the right of educational choice of parents, has made a further lunge at the prerogatives of mom and dad, de facto imposing the gender ideology.
It was Macron’s party, La République En Marche, that proposed a bill, later definitively passed by the French parliament in January, that would prohibit stopping gender transition in children. However, the wording of the text is so generic and ambiguous that, in fact, it would end up punishing even those who simply support the biological reality of diversity/complementarity between males and females. Further, by prohibiting anyone from opposing conversion therapy for minors, it would prevent any course of treatment for children and teens suffering from gender dysphoria. This means that not even parents will be able to prevent their children from undergoing surgical, i.e. invasive treatments aimed at changing their sexual identity. And the penalty is as much as three years in prison and 45 thousand euros in fines.
But it doesn’t end there, because Macron’s kowtows to the so-called “rainbow” lobbies led the president to pass a law just two years ago allowing artificial insemination for everyone, including lesbian couples and single women, effectively creating intentional fatherlessness.
Finally, his progressive agenda has not spared even nascent life: in January, Macron saw fit to “inaugurate” the half-year period of the French EU presidency by proposing, during the plenary session in the Strasbourg workplace, that free access to abortion should be included no less than in the Fundamental Charter of Rights that contains the ideals on which the EU is based.
Macron’s re-election after five years of abuses against the non-negotiable principles will also have made many protagonists of the international political scene rejoice and given breath to the trumpets of the media, but it is definitely bad news for those who care about the protection of nascent life and the family.
