The Life Foundation in Spain has warned that the “International Women’s Day,” which is planned to take place during the legally required suspension of campaigning before the general elections in March, could be manipulated in favor of the political and social left.
“The most radical political and social left in Spain will not respect the cooling off period if protests in different cities in support of abortion on March 8 are authorized, with the excuse of “International Working Women’s Day,” warned the director of the Life Foundation, Manuel Cruz.
Cruz pointed out that if the Central Electoral Committee allows these acts, “it must be asked for whom do they work, are they doing it for the common good or for a specific sector of society,” because “it is undeniable that abortion has sparked a political debate in which the different political parties offer different options.”
“If radical feminists support specific proposals,” he stated, “the logical thing would be for them to do so during the electoral campaign, or before, if they are not asking for a vote. But society will be grateful for that rest from campaigning.”
Cruz noted that in past there have been violations of the required cooling off period that may have influenced the outcome, “and it would not be good for society that a similar situation is repeated and the elections law is not followed.”
“The radical feminist groups have close ties with the United Left and their proposals have received the express support of important members of the Socialist government and the PSOE [the Socialist party in Spain]. Thus, the protests that are being promoted would be an extension of the electoral campaign only for the benefit of a few concrete political parties,” Cruz continued.
“For four years the Socialist government has promoted an anti-feminine feminism that repudiates the natural idea of woman and is now an ideology close to the government in Spain, with totalitarian aspirations, whose fruit is an imposed sexual policy in which abortion is a key piece,” Cruz warned.
