SUBJECT: The call for opinions concerning EC goal to extend the list of EU crimes to ‘hate speech’ and ‘hate crime’
Dear members of the EC,
I am addressing you, in my capacity as chairman of the Association Society and Values, defending human dignity and freedom, marriage and family since 2007 in Bulgaria. Thanks to the freedom to make public the consequences of the legalization of prostitution, civil partnership, surrogacy, gender and gender identity other than biological, and others we have managed to stop, along with others, a number of harmful to the individual, the family and society policies.
Our opinions are based on scientific research, on the consequences of similar policies in other countries, on the Constitution and the domestic and international legislation adopted by our country.
We are deeply concerned about your intention to include "hate speech" and "hate crimes" as "EU crimes", along with terrorism, organized crime, human trafficking and sexual exploitation of women and children.
