E.U. Leadership Clashes with Hungary Over L.G.B.T. Bill

Ursula von der Leyen, the European Commission president, sharply criticized a proposed Hungarian law that targets the L.G.B.T. community, saying she would work to thwart it.

The Hungarian bill is a shame, and I’ve instructed my responsible commissioners to write a letter to the Hungarian authorities concerning or expressing our legal concerns before the bill enters into force. This bill clearly discriminates against people on the basis of their sexual orientation, and it goes against all the values, the fundamental values of the European Union. And this is human dignity. It is equality and is the human fundamental rights. So we will not compromise on these principles. And I strongly believe in a European Union where you are free to love whom you want. And I believe in a European Union that embraces diversity. This is the foundation of our values. So I will use all the powers of the commission to ensure that the rights of all E.U. citizens are guaranteed, whoever you are and wherever you live.
