Viva España! Defend the children at all cost!


It is good that some movement is being made on the abortion law but it doesn’t go far enough.




Some of the Spaniards I’ve talked to (as in the kind that is only barely culturally Catholic) are going on about how this is bringing back the bad old days of Franco’s dictatorship, while others, naturally are more supportive.

It seems, though that this bill would stand a very good chance of passing. The party presenting it controls a majority of the Cortes.

My one concern is what one opponent brought up, that it would (rightfully in my opinion) restrict access to infanticide to poor women, but allow rich women to evade the law by travelling to London and having an abortion there. I wonder how this could be rectified? Not that I’m holding my breath, a good part of that majority party is in the pocket of the rich.All in all, it is a good law passed by a normally mediocre to bad government.
