Topless feminist protest in Spain's parliament over abortion reform

Text size Aa Aa

Feminist activists interrupted a Spanish parliamentary session in protest over planned changes to abortion law.

Three topless women from the organisation FEMEN managed to get in, shouting “Abortion is sacred” during a speech by Justice Minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon.

Spain’s ruling Popular Party has announced legislation that will eliminate abortion on demand until week 14 of pregnancy.

The change, which has sparked several protests, reverses earlier abortion reforms in Spain. Critics have said that it sets the country back more than 25 years on the issue.
