.- The organization Right to Life in Spain announced next month's 3rd International March for Life, which aims to bring about “profound” reform and “zero abortions” in the country.

The Oct. 7 march will take place in Madrid and in 63 other cities across Spain, as well as in some 30 additional countries.  

Right to Life spokeswoman Gador Joya said the organization wants to “support and encourage the government in its until-now stated intentions to protect human life, and to demand that this reform be profound.”

Joya called the abolition of abortion in cases of fetal deformation “good news” and said the exception for health of the mother should also be abolished because “it has become a loophole.”

During the announcement, the executive director and founder of European Dignity Watch, Sophia Kuby, spoke via internet from Brussels. She noted that Europeans see a “contradiction” between the protection of life spelled out in their countries' constitutions and the laws that are enacted.

What happens in Spain, she said, “has an impact beyond its borders.”
