Headlines from Apollo: March for Life – Spanish Style!
LifeSiteNews.com - Hundreds of pro-life groups and thousands of individuals in over 100 towns across Spain mobilized Sunday for the country’s third annual March for Life. Participants called on Spain’s new, more conservative government to close the “psychological risk” loophole in Spain’s abortion legislation that has led to over a million deaths, to stop the eugenic killing of disabled unborn children, and to end abortion altogether in Spain.
Supported by more than 500 volunteers, Spain’s principal pro-life organization, Right to Life (Derecho a Vivir) worked in a massive coalition to distribute more than 20,000 pennants, 28,000 balloons, 6,800 caps, 60,000 flyers, and tens of thousands of other items sporting a pro-life message, according to Europa Press.
The same agency reports that events were simultaneously held in Portugal and several Latin American countries, including Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Mexico, and Perú.
Gador Hoya, a Right to Life spokesman, spoke before demonstrators in Madrid, calling on the Spanish government to end eugenic abortions.
“[N]o human being should be discriminated against for being different, for having some disability. None!” said Hoya. “We therefore seek the abolition of eugenic abortion in its entirety.
“We don’t want disabled people of the first and second class. We want all disabled children to be protected by their government without exception before and after being born.”
