Pro-life group urges Spain to overturn abortion law

.- Right to Life in Spain recently gave the country’s health official 300 pacifiers representing the number of abortions that take place each day in the country, urging an end to abortion.

On Jan. 4, the group implored Ana Mato, minister of Health, Social Services and Equality, to do “whatever is in her power” to reverse Spain's abortion law.

According to Europa Press, around 60 people participated in the event, with one member of the organization dressed up as Gaspar—one of the three Magi—to deliver the pacifiers.

Right to Life also gave Mato a letter reminding her of a statement she made a few months ago when she called abortion “a tragedy for women and a failure for all of society.” 

The power to “overturn the law” is “in her hands,” the organization said, and “the more the necessary political action to combat this scourge is postponed, the more responsibility she bears.”

Right to Life asked Mato to help ensure that “no woman would be deprived of being able to experience the treasure of motherhood” and that no baby would be “deprived of life.”
