The Assembly of Associations for Life, Freedom and Dignity, consisting of more than 140 civil society organizations in Spain, met on June 22 and announced massive demonstrations against the "ideological agenda" of the current government, which was formed by a far-left coalition between the Spanish Socialist Workers Party (PSOE) and Podemos.
The pro-life umbrella group plans massive demonstrations against the country’s euthanasia law passed in March, and at the same time will launch a People’s Legislative Initiative (ILP) to rescind the euthanasia law and replace it with one on palliative care.
In addition, the group will work to block the passage of a bill that would criminalize sidewalk counseling or demonstrating by pro-lifers near abortion clinics.
A People’s Legislative Initiative, also known as a citizens' initiative, is a provision under the Spanish Constitution whereby citizens can propose a law to be passed.
