Every Life Matters
Congratulations to the Spanish pro-life movement for a highly successful rally in Madrid, which drew an estimated two million people. The theme was Every Life Matters.
The purpose of this demonstration was to show the opposition of the Spanish people to new, very permissive, abortion legislation being promulgated in that country. The law, which would allow women to procure an abortion for any reason whatsoever during the first 14 weeks of pregnancy, has already been approved by Spain’s Council of State and is a further step towards final approval by the National Congress and then signed into law by the President.
The Spanish pro-life movement believe that now it time to seek concrete responses from political parties, from government and from other public institutions and will keep holding such demonstrations until they are listened to. Until political will in the corridors of power finally coincides with and represents the will of the people and recognises the right to life, the freedom and the dignity of every human being.
Let's see if Zapatero pays any attention at all to the will of the people.
The Spanish Federation of Prolife Associations are conscious that the fight to save unborn lives is not only a national one and that a global effort is needed to oppose the culture of death, with this in mind they have arranged a Prolife World Congress to be held from November 6-9 in Saragossa in Northern Spain.
