 ABSTENTION (+) Podprl sem tudi poročilo o preprečevanju porok otrok.
Številke iz poročila so me zelo osupnile. Vsako tretje dekle v državah v razvoju se poroči, preden dopolni 18 let, in vsako deveto dekle do starosti 15 let. Po mojem mnenju otroške poroke vplivajo tako na deklice kot dečke, vendar so najbolj ogrožena dekleta, kar predstavlja mnogo več kot polovico poročenih otrok.
Problem pa ne vpliva samo na stanje v tretjih državah, temveč tudi na Evropo. Tudi Istanbulska konvencija o preprečevanju in boju proti nasilju nad ženskami in nasilju v družini obravnava prisilno poroko kot obliko nasilja nad ženskami, saj zahteva inkriminacijo dejanja namernega prisiljevanja otroka k sklenitvi zakonske zveze.
In veseli me, da navedeno poročilo sledi tem določbam. Poroke otrok je treba omejiti!

 FOR (+) I voted in favour of the resolution further to Question for Oral Answer B8 0328/2017 pursuant to Rule 128(5) of the Rules of Procedure on ending child marriage. The EU is committed to promoting the rights of the child, and child, early and forced marriage (CEFM) is a violation of these rights.
The EU is committed to comprehensively protecting and promoting the rights of the child in its external policy. CEFM has been recognised under international human rights law as a harmful practice and is often associated with serious forms of violence against women and girls, including intimate partner violence. It has a devastating impact on the overall realisation and enjoyment of girls’ and women’s rights, and on girls’ health, including serious risks of complications in pregnancy and HIV infections.
The resolution emphasises that child marriage is a violation of the rights of the child and a form of violence against women and girls and as such it should be condemned. I voted in favour because I believe that the EU and the Members States have to increase access to health services, including sexual and reproductive health and rights services, for women and child brides.
