François-Xavier Bellamy, MEP (LR) was the guest of the Grand Rendez-vous d’Europe 1 / Cnews / Les Echos. The philosophy professor returned to the debate in France, to include abortion in the constitution. For the MEP, “this political debate is disconnected from reality” of the French.

A time considered a fundamental right in much of the West, the decision of the American Supreme Court to revoke the constitutional right guaranteeing abortion to American women in all the states of the country, puts abortion at the center of the debates. Including in France, where the majority now wants to incorporate the right to abortion into the constitution, although LREM deputies rejected this proposal in 2018.

“This whole debate is delusional”, judge François-Xavier Bellamy at the microphone of Europe 1 / Cnews / Les Echos. “There are so many topics today” that deserve debate, assures the essayist, “starting with the geopolitical situation on the border with Ukraine. I was in Romania for a few days at the invitation of my colleagues. “I met French soldiers deployed there. And I heard the French news saying to myself ‘but, have we gone crazy?'”.

“Delusional political life”

“It has nothing to do with reality anymore,” laments the MEP. And to add: “The reality is that no one in this country, no political force is questioning the Veil law. Do we really need to put this question back on the table?”

And to conclude: “I can’t take this crazy political life anymore where we talk about everything except real people (…) Wanting to touch the Constitution, which we should only approach with a trembling hand for a American decision, says something” about our society, he acknowledges.
