Abort the bill

It is genuinely difficult to believe the Spanish Government, university-educated and ‘democratically’ elected in the 21st century, has drawn up plans to ban abortion.

Their body clocks have seemingly hit reverse as they attempt to drag Spain, kicking and screaming, back down its anthropological timeline to an age of sexism, repression and ignorance.

The fact women would not be punished for illegal abortions reeks of a return to the horrific coat-hanger dark-alley scenarios of a dark past.

But the discontented spirit of the age has fired up a torrent of disgust and outrage across Europe. Like at a music festival when the cry of ‘b######s’ goes up and spreads like wildfire through ten thousand throaty roars. This isn’t a Mexican wave of bandwagon protest; it is a tidal wave that cannot be ignored.

Abortion needs to be dealt with sensitively, sincerely and intelligently. But if those in charge are  stuck in the last century then they deserve a reality check and a return to the back benches.
