MADRID, Spain, Sept 22 (LSN) – A debate in the Spanish Parliament began Monday on allowing abortion on demand in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. The move would further the pro-abortion law established by the previous Socialist government in the country in 1985 which permits the killing of children in the womb for reasons of the physical or mental health of the mother, rape, and deformation of the fetus.  Reuters reported this morning that The Roman Catholic Church is being accused of “unfairly trying to pressure the vote.” The Catholic Church in Spain has condemned the proposed legislation as “An even broader licence to kill children,” and has encouraged priests to preach from their pulpits on the horrors of abortion.
