Hundreds of people on Saturday staged a protest outside Spain's highest court to demand the suspension of a new more liberal abortion law, two days before it was to take effect.
The protesters, carrying placards reading "No to abortion, yes to life" and "Everyone has the right to life", gathered in front of the Constitutional Court building in Madrid in response to a call by around 60 anti-abortion groups.
They also chanted "25 years is enough," a reference to the decriminalisation of abortion in Spain in 1985.
The Socialist government's new abortion reforms -- which notably allow all women to end their pregnancies up until 14 weeks -- take effect on Monday.
Of course, if you look closely at the pictures of the protest, you will see that the protesters are, for the most part, not young. These are the people who were horribly sexually repressed by the fascist regime. Now, they want to deny the younger generations what was stolen from them by Franco's dictatorship. So at least we can blame Spain's anti-abortion freaks on the fascist dictatorship. What excuse do the US anti-choice crazies have?
