Justice Minister Judit Varga said families are at the heart of the Hungarian fundamental law, not just as a legal entity or blood ties “but a concept saturated with values that define our identity and our worldview”.
Speaking at The Future of Nation States in the European Union conference in Brussels, organized by the Edmund Burke Foundation, Minister Varga said: “The full support of our families is the guarantee for the preservation of our sovereignty. Therefore the Fundamental Law of Hungary also states the protection of marriage and that the upbringing of children is the sole responsibility of the parent. Also that the mother shall be a woman, the father shall be a man,” she said. “Therefore it is extremely important to understand that anyone who attacks the families, eventually will attack the whole construction, the whole European Union”.
