Protesters carry giant vaginas at abortion law protests in Spain

Subscribe to ITN News:
Thousands rallied in Spanish cities with demonstrations for equality at work and against the government’s bid to curb abortion rights. The annual awareness day drew particular anger this year at a plan by the conservative government to end a right for women to abort up to 14 weeks of pregnancy — a reform that has yet to reach parliament. Several thousand demonstrators marched in central Madrid and Barcelona with flags, drums and giant vagina sculptures. Similar demonstrations were called in several other cities. “No legislation in our wombs, no mistreatment of our bodies, no cutting of our rights,” read one banner in Madrid. One protester, Angela Barrios Manjon, 66 said: “this year is very special… the labour reform and the abortion law are against women,” she added. “The right wing wants women to stay at home and look after the children.” Report by Jennifer Cordingley.
