Young people march against abortion in Madrid, carry photos of Martin Luther King

.- Some 60 young people from pro-life organizations in Madrid took part in a march against abortion in the Spanish capital this week, calling on the government to provide more assistance to families and to reverse the country's new law on abortion.

Jose Maria Blanco, who directs the Nasciturus pro-life organization, told Europa Press the march was the “climax” of a year of activities the pro-life groups have carried out.

The young people at the march all wore t-shirts with a picture of Martin Luther King and words, “Have a Dream Today,” to underscore that they are struggling “for the same things as King, which are the rights of the human person.”

Blanco said that while King’s fight was against racial discrimination, today the discrimination is against “the unborn and pregnant woman,” who “are not offered any alternatives to abortion and are pushed to accepted it.” 

“This is going to impact the future and is already impacting the moral idea of man that society and the economy have,” he added.

Blanco said young people reject Spain’s new law on abortion, as well as the manipulation, irresponsibility and sex-ed policies of the government, which he explained, does not pay attention to the people.  “Society has never asked for measures such as this law on abortion or for the teaching of kids to masturbate.”
