The motion passed with 459 votes in favor, 58 abstentions and 147 against, including all the representatives of the League and the Brothers of Italy.

The deputies condemned the law adopted by the Hungarian Parliament last June 15, describing it as a "clear violation of the fundamental rights enshrined in the Charter, the Treaties and the Union legislation relating to the internal market". He then urged the European Commission to initiate an urgent legal procedure against the government of the sovereign president Orban.

The European Parliament then underlined that this law does not represent an exception in Hungarian policy towards LGBTQ + people, but constitutes "a further intentional and premeditated example of the gradual dismantling of fundamental rights in Hungary", where hostility, discrimination and disinformation campaigns against this community have become tools of political censorship. In the action of the Hungarian government, Parliament has found serious violations of the human rights and values ​​of the Union, which are threatening democracy, the rule of law and freedom of the media. Measures contrary to European rights and values ​​include the recent amendment to the Constitution of Hungary to affirm that "the mother is a woman and the father is a man" and the prohibition of legal gender recognition for transgender and intersex people.

Parliament "condemns with the utmost firmness" the recent anti-LGBTIQ legislation and denounces the dismantling of democracy and the rule of law in Hungary.

Although not binding, the resolution adds further pressure on Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in order to bring Hungary to the European Court of Justice. "This law is shameful," said the president, because "it uses the protection of minors, to which we are all committed, as an excuse to discriminate against people because of their sexual orientation". Von der Leyen then sent a formal letter to the Orban government, promising to use all the powers of the Union executive to protect the rights of citizens.

In this context, the Italian representatives a Brussels did not make a good impression, failing to vote compactly against a discriminatory law that could lead to an increase in violence against LGBTQ + people. In fact, to protect international alliances and political agreements, all the deputies of the Lega and Brothers of Italy voted "no" to the motion against ally Orban. Forza Italia split in 3, with a majority of abstentions and two minorities in favor and against.
