Video Madrid: 1.5 Million Spaniards in Anti-Abortion Protest on 17/10/09

1.5 Million Spaniards turned out for an anti-abortion protest in Madrid, Spain yesterday.

The proposed new law, approved by the Socialist government last month, would allow the abortion on demand for women of 16 and over up to the 14th week of pregnancy, and up to 22 weeks if there was a risk to the mother's health or if the foetus was deformed.
"The presence of each of you here today in this demonstration is a commitment to fight for life," Benigno Blanco, head of a group called Forum on the Family," told the crowd. "Those of you who govern us must listen to the voice from the streets."
The pro life protesters held signs reading "For Life, Women and Motherhood," "Women Against Abortion" and "Madrid 2009, Capital of Life."
Another anti-abortion protest in the Spanish capital last March attracted 500,000 people, according to the organisers.
The current Spanish Socialist government has no respect for the Law of God and has pursued a strong anti Catholic agenda.
