31/01/2020 | 12:26:15 Thank you, Mr President. Dear colleagues, It is customary to say that everything has a price, but in this case, life and death are priceless. I'm a doctor and I'd like to give you a little medical insight into this whole thing. Decisive medical advances have led to spectacular medical breakthroughs over the years in the field of transplantation: surgical advances, but above all progress in the field of immunosuppressive treatments, anti-rejection treatments, especially with the appearance of... 30/01/2020 | 18:03:08 Thank you, Mr President. Dear colleagues, Thank you for your various interventions. I liked your tone, a tone of revolt, a unanimous tone, a strong, determined revolt. You have expressed a call to action,...

I thank him in two respects, for the Committee and for myself, since we are both substitutes –I am vice-chair of the Committee– and as such, we share this important work in the hemicycle... 03/10/2019 | 18:58:28 Thank you, Madam President. Dear colleagues, First of all, I would like to congratulate the rapporteur for her very interesting work on a topic that is extremely relevant. So, according to the IPCC report on climate change, if we do not speed up momentum in this area, there will be irreversible impacts on ecosystems and life on Earth.
