.- More than 40 civic organizations have joined together to organize a massive pro-life demonstration in support of pregnant women and in opposition to the governmentâs proposal to reform Spainâs abortion laws. The demonstration is set to take place on October 17 in Madrid.
The spokesperson for the organization Right to Life, Gador Joya, told reporters this week that the pro-life community intends to make its voice heard and to urge the government to turn back from the âmost violent and radical abortion program in Europe.â
âOur more than 100,000 volunteers will do their best to make the October demonstration another success for an independent and free society in the face of imposition and abuse by our leaders,â she said.
The president of the watchdog website HazteOir.org, Ignacio Arsuaga, said his organization would put all of its resources to work in helping to organize and publicize the event.
This will be the second massive demonstration against abortion, after the March for Life that took place on March 29, when 500,000 took to the streets of Madrid to protest in support of human life. Eighty seven other marches took place simultaneously across Spain and Latin America.
