"Mr President, today is Europe Day; it is the day of solidarity. Europe shows solidarity when it also provides health and social cover to the weakest members of society. The crisis and the austerity measures are once again being used as the perfect alibi to demonstrate the hypocrisy of governments that undermine equality, for example, in access to health services. I want to warn of the serious situation that is arising in Spain due to the withdrawal of the health insurance card for illegal immigrants, an example of social exclusion and a lack of respect for human rights. When providing health care, distinguishing between legal and illegal immigrants and differentiating between races is discrimination and violates human rights. To neglect the most disadvantaged who, for example, need dialysis or treatment for cancer or AIDS is discrimination. Guaranteeing the health of the most vulnerable people must be a right that dignifies Europe and any limitation of this is a limitation of rights."@en1
