As Spain celebrates the 30th anniversary of its Constitution, a group of young people has covered the monument to the Constitution in Madrid with white crosses in reparation for the thousands of legal abortions that have taken place in the country.
The lawn that surrounds the monument was covered in white crosses, resembling a cemetery. The young people also posted a large sign on the lawn that protested the fact that the Magna Carta defends respect for life from conception to natural death and yet, abortion is legal. The sign read: “Article 15 of the Constitution: Everyone has the Right to Life: No abortion.”
Enrique Jaureguizar, director of “Doctors for Life,” said the protest was intended to convey that the Constitution is not respected in Spain, and he warned that because of the legalization of abortion, each year more than 112,000 children die in the country, which equals more than 300 abortions per day.
