Over 60 pro-life groups to protest abortion law outside Spanish Supreme Court

.- More than 60 pro-life associations will gather outside the Spanish Supreme Court on July 3 in Madrid to express their rejection of the country’s new law on abortion.

The groups will also demand that the legislation be placed under an injunction until a ruling is made on a case challenging its constitutionality filed by the People’s Party.

The theme of the protest will be “25 Years Are Enough! Yes to Life for All,” and will take place two days before the new law is scheduled to take effect on July 5. Though abortion is already legal in the country, the new legislation allows abortion up to the fourteenth week of pregnancy and in some cases, up to the twenty-second week.

Alicia Latorre, president of the Spanish Federation of Pro-Life Associations, said that the protest's “theme conveys that it is time to overcome the cruel and archaic practice of abortion, which has been legal for 25 years, since July 25, 1985.”

“Enough of legitimizing the deaths of the innocent, of making handicaps equal to the loss of the right to life, of making pregnant women feel abandoned and of profiting with impunity off of the sufferings of others,” she underscored.

The pro-life associations also sent a message to the People’s Party saying if it regains power it should not only “overturn the law, but also establish protection for all human life and institute assistance programs through the regional governments.”

“We urge politicians that Human Rights never be at the whim of the party that happens to be in power at the moment,” they said.
