Thousands Protest Spain’s Impending Pro-Choice Laws

Via the BBC:

Thousands of demonstrators have marched through Spanish cities to protest against a bill that will make it easier for women to seek an abortion.

In Madrid, families with young children carried banners, flags and balloons and chanted “No to abortion! Yes to life!”.

The bill, already passed by parliament, introduces abortion on demand up to 14 weeks into a pregnancy. At present, a pregnancy can only be terminated in mainly Catholic Spain under specific circumstances. The new bill is due to come into force in July.
