The English version of Spain’s The Local is reporting that five activists belonging to controversial feminist group Femen have staged a protest against an anti-abortion demonstration in Spain’s capital by baring their breasts and painting skulls on their faces.
The five Femen members shouted out “Pro-life is genocide” as they interrupted the anti-abortion march in Madrid’s emblematic Puerta del Sol square on Sunday morning.
As usual, the feminist activists appeared topless as part of their protest modus operandi, but this time they also painted their faces and upper bodies in black and white to replicate a skeleton.
Bystanders vented their anger towards the women as police officers arrested the repeating offenders for public indecency.
Organizers of the ‘Sí a la vida’ demo, “Yes to life” in English, claimed as many as 100,000 people took part in the march.
“We can’t allow 300 children to die on a daily basis,” Lorena Díaz, spokesperson for Spain’s Right to Live organization, told Spanish news agency Europa Press.

FEMEN writes, “No more victims because anti-choice fascism! Screaming “Pro-vida Genocida!” (Pro-life genocide) dead Sextremists personifyed the revenge of all women raped by Gallardon’s law. Fascists groups like HazteOir, or catholic groups from Europe and Spain, youth organizations neo-nazis. Our bodies belong to us! Pro-life is pro-death! YOUR MORALS, MY DEATH. PRO-LIFE GO TO HELL!“
