Ibague, Colombia, Mar 11, 2021 / 18:13 pm America/Denver (CNA).
A Colombian archbishop condemned an attack against a local cathedral March 8 by a group of radical pro-abortion feminists.
Archbishop Orlando Roa Barbosa of Ibagué said in a statement that the Church “will carry on with a prophetic voice, denouncing everything that, with the appearance of law, really goes against the integrity, nature and dignity of women.”
On International Women's Day, which takes place March 8 and is also known as “8M,” a group of radical feminists vandalized the cathedral. They tagged the walls with slogans such as “8M,” “rapists,” and “we want each other alive,” an apparent reference to violence against women.
Among other things, the demonstrators were opposing the Church’s view on abortion, according to local media. Many of the protestors have called for legalized abortion-on-demand without any government regulation.
The women also vandalized public monuments in downtown Ibagué, the capital of the department of Tolima.
