Tens of thousands of protesters from all over the Spanish state marched in Madrid last Saturday against government attacks on the right to abortion.
Justice minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon wants to ban abortion except in cases of rape or risks to the woman’s health.
Since 2010, abortion is available on demand up to 14 weeks of pregnancy.
The new proposals have been met with outrage, with even some politicians in Ruiz-Gallardon’s own conservative PP party speaking out.
Solidarity protests took place in London and Edinburgh. More than 5,000 marched in Paris—the day before the latest massive homophobic march in the city.
