NEUQUEN, Argentina, October 5, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — Pro-abortion activists defaced the door of a Catholic cathedral last week as part of a "women’s rights" march through the Argentinean city of Neuquén.

The abortion activists wrote over a large mural dedicated to mothers whose children disappeared for politically dissenting. They also varnished the Cathedral door and the door of the bishop’s office.

“At certain times of the year there are demonstrations. Unfortunately, in some cases, as in this pro-abortion demonstration, this also happens,” Neuquén Bishop Virginio Bressanelli said. “This varnish will damage the building and we have to redecorate it in order to erase the writing.”

He said it was a “sad fact” that the abortion activists damaged the mural of mothers.

“We cannot accept anything like that” because the mural is “part of the beauty of the town and the heritage of all,” Bressanelli said.

This is not the first time abortion activists have maliciously protested against Catholic cathedrals. Just last year, a mob of topless feminists assaulted a group of men for praying the rosary outside the Argentinean Cathedral of Mar de Plata. They attempted to burn the cathedral down.

In 2014, three topless feminists disrupted a Stockholm, Sweden, cathedral Mass. They were smeared with fake blood and painted slogans claiming “abortion is sacred” on their bare chests.

In 2013, hundreds of abortion supporters disrupted Mass in Santiago, Chile’s Catholic cathedral. They spray-painted some of the altars. Others stripped on top of altars.
