EU countries must do more to protect fundamental rights, including those of national minorities, LGBT people and migrants, says a resolution adopted by Parliament on Wednesday. The text calls for a continuous assessment of member states’ compliance with basic EU values and the rule of law. It also voices concern over restrictions recently imposed in some member states on reproductive health services such as safe and legal abortion.The resolution on fundamental rights in the EU in 2010 and 2011 was adopted by 308 votes to 229 with 48 abstentions. Before voting on the Civil Liberties Committee resolution, MEPs rejected an alternative text tabled by the EPP group.To maintain the credibility of EU membership conditions, member states’ compliance with EU fundamental values and the rule of law should be continuously assessed, says the resolution. “The implementation of values such as plurality, gender equality and the rule of law is at the core of the EU. It is our duty to protect fundamental rights and values to build up a culture of rights among EU countries and institutions”, explained rapporteur Monika Flašíková Beňová (S&D, SK) in a debate on Tuesday.
