SPAIN – #Aborto sin Acoso (Abortion without harassment)

Harassment of women and professionals working in specialist abortion clinics
is a constant event in Spain since the adoption of the first law allowing
abortions in 1985. According to El Salto Diario and ACAI, the national
association of abortion clinics, more than 8,000 women have experienced
harassment and been insulted and intimidated when attending an abortion clinic
since 2010.

In response to this year’s anti-abortion “40 days for life”, the
Plataforma Proderechos was formed and has gathered together 62 different social
organisations in Madrid. They aim to call the attention of members of the
Spanish parliament, the government and political parties to the seriousness of
the situation and ask them to legislate to stop this harassment. For 28
September, they created a video and a webpage.
