The ANO opposes Vatican Treaty

THE New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) party will launch a petition next week to prevent the adoption of what it calls a "discrimination treaty", the Hospodársky noviny daily wrote.

The treaty, endorsed by the Vatican, allows professionals such as doctors to refuse to carry out abortions on the basis of their religious beliefs. The ANO’s petition, entitled "For a Modern Slovakia", believes that the treaty "introduces a category of unequal, second class citizens".

According to ANO, their initiative against the treaty is in response to activities of a Christian group, Fórum Života (Forum of Life), which started collecting signatures in Roman-Catholic churches around Slovakia in favour of the treaty.
