HUMAN rights activists descended on the Spanish embassy yesterday in protest at the right-wing Madrid government’s plan to roll back abortion rights.
Dozens of campaigners from My Belly is Mine have taken action against Spain’s anti-abortion draft Bill discussed in the country’s parliament on Friday.
“Women have fought for their rights with great spirit and determination,” said one of the organisers Jade Hope. “For their rights to now be taken away from them is a disgrace.”
The campaign has emphasised how almost 50,000 women die after unsafe and regulated abortions every year across the globe.
Ms Hope added that abortions should be exclusively a woman’s choice.
“No one else has the right to impact on such a tough decision and the Spanish government thinking they can is to deny human rights,” she said.
Women’s rights activists in Britain stood alongside protesters in Berlin, Vienna and Lisbon in solidarity with Spanish women.
