The historic election of a conservative pro-family government and the nation’s first female prime minister in Italy on Sunday is already causing shockwaves across globalist and abortionist factions in Europe. The French prime minister has threatened that the leadership of the EU will stand “vigilant” against the coalition’s elective abortion agenda.
Election results from Italy indicate the government will be formed from a coalition of three nationalist and conservative political parties led by the Fratelli D’Italia (Brothers of Italy) and its head, Giorgia Meloni. She is expected to soon become the first woman to serve as Italy’s prime minister.
As polls indicated the likelihood of the conservative victory in Italy over recent weeks, many globalists and pro-abortion politicians involved in the EU and member nation governments have been preparing. Several have already threatened retaliation against the Italian people for engaging in a democratic election process leading to a disfavored result.
After it became apparent that Meloni’s coalition would win, French Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne told reporters that the EU would be paying close attention to the conservative government to be sure “human rights” were not threatened by restricting free access to abortions.
She said, “In Europe, we have a set of values and, of course, we will be mindful that these values are respected by everyone when it comes to human rights and the right to abortion.”
Meloni has made statements while campaigning that she would not seek to restrict abortions in Italy. She is a Catholic and did say that she would like to see women presented with alternatives to abortion before unborn life is taken.
EU Commission Prez Threatens to Use 'Tools' Against Italy If Populist Right Wins Election https://t.co/3k1TeLPOLY

European Commissioner Ursala von der Leyen said last week that the EU would use the “tools” it has available to punish Italy in the event the election went against the abortion agenda. She specifically referenced Hungary and Poland, two EU member nations who have been in conflict with the cultural values expressed by EU leadership.
Matteo Salvini is the leader of the Lega (The League) Party that is part of the winning Italian conservative coalition. He described the EU threat to punish Italy as “disgusting words, the threatening tone is unacceptable.”
Salvini emphasized that it is “up to the Italian public to vote, and not ‘the Brussels bureaucrats.”
