.- Pro-life groups in Spain announced that the march planned for news Friday to demand a stop to illegal abortions would have as its destination the Ministry of Health, since the government said it would not allow the march to end at the Congressional building. 

Government leaders claimed Congress would be in session that day, although the official schedule does not list any meeting of the full body or of committees that afternoon.

The march is intended to demand that Health officials promote legal and administrative reforms to enforce the law on abortion which made the practice legal in three cases, especially in cases of “psychological health of the mother”.

The protests have been mounted in response to abuses like those that have taken place at the clinics run by Carlos Morin in Barcelona, where abortions up to the eighth month of pregnancy were being performed.

Likewise, pro-lifers will demand that more support be provided to pregnant mothers, “as abortion is a desperate decision out of a lack of social support for a woman in crisis,” and that greater attention be given to adoption as an alternative.
