The bishop of Orihuela-Alicante, Spain, José Ignacio Munilla, joined the 40 Days for Life campaign Nov. 2 in front of an abortion facility to pray for an end to abortion.
His actions were significant because Spain passed a law in April that can construe praying in front of an abortion clinic as a form of harassment punishable by fines.
Munilla shared a photograph on Twitter showing himself with other volunteers from 40 Days for Life.
“On this day of #TodosLosFielesDifuntos (All the Faithful Departed) I participated in the 40 Days for Life campaign, praying before an abortion center in Alicante,” the prelate wrote.
