'Yes to Life' referendum to call attention to new Spanish abortion law

.- Pro-life leaders in Madrid announced this week they will present the “Yes to Life” referendum in the Spanish capital on January 21, in order to raise awareness in Europe about the extent of the country’s new abortion law.

In statements to reporters, Gador Joya, the spokesperson for Spain's Right to Life said that during the first trimester of Spain’s turn in the European Union presidency, a number of protests and initiatives are planned to “inform the European public about the opposition of the majority of Spanish society to the country's new law on abortion.”

Gador said a petition signed by one million Spaniards will be presented to the Spanish House of Representatives on January 28, calling for a referendum on the law.

Pro-life groups are using Facebook and other social networking sites to invite people to send their petition directly to Spanish President Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero in support of the referendum.
