Hidveghi: Family law ‘exclusive’ national competency

"Italy and its government have the exclusive right to pass rules concerning marriage, adoption, and any other issue around family law," Balazs Hidveghi, MEP of Hungary's ruling Fidesz, said in a European Parliamentary debate on the subject of surrogate motherhood on Wednesday.

Adopting regulations concerning those areas is a national competency, he added. He also said, however, that such rules should be designed “with regard to higher moral considerations”.

“Our European culture is based on Christianity and Christian values that involve certain moral obligations and restrictions to human actions,” he said.

“We must not build a world in which the fundamental laws of nature and life are disregarded; we must not materialise people and allow children to become goods that could be purchased for money,” he said.

“We should accept that life and birth are sacred and man is not a master over life and death,” Hidveghi added.
