Catholic church vandalized by pro-abortion protestors in Spain

According to the Catholic News Agency, on September 28th during a pro-abortion march in Barcelona, abortion advocates vandalized a Catholic church. Now, the Spanish Christian Lawyers Foundation has filed a complaint against the pro-abortion organization whose activists were involved.

The abortion advocates “attacked the parish of Santa María del Remei (St. Mary of the Remedy) in the Las Corts neighborhood,” according to an October 17 statement from the foundation. The pro-abortion group, the Association of Sexual and Reproductive Rights, allegedly “reproached the parishioners who attended Mass in addition to painting graffiti with statements such as [piece of] ‘trash church you are a dictatorship’ or ‘abuser priests prohibit abortion.'”

According to Catholic News World, the protestors had banners and drums, and they read their manifesto at the doors of the church. They chanted, “Our body, our decision.”

According to the attorneys, this is not the first time that such attacks have been carried out against St. Mary of the Remedy by abortion advocates. Last February, parish vicar Pablo Pich and others prayed the rosary in front of the church during a protest and were faced with shouts of “remove your rosaries from our ovaries” and “free and free abortion.” He said he considers the abortion debate “a religious issue, but in a bad sense.”

“It is a religion for them, and like any religion it involves worship and sacrifices,” he explained. “They need human sacrifices, it is demonic.” He said this is why organizations such as 40 Days for Life are so important — “to be able to pray for life and for the Lord to touch his heart.”

The Christian Lawyers Foundation said that the abortion advocates held an illegal demonstration and committed property damage and crimes against freedom of conscience and historical patrimony. According to CNA, “The same day as the demonstration, the Association of Sexual and Reproductive Rights posted on X a photo of protesters outside the church with the statement: ‘NOT A STEP BACK, let’s stop the offensive against abortion! We need to go back to the streets, continue to be organized, and with great political clarity to challenge all those agents who cause institutional violence, whether it’s health care, judicial, or police.'”
