A PRO-ABORTION nun has set up her own political party to take on the establishment.

Teresa Forcades has been ticked off by The Vatican for her left-wing views, which would see Spain leaving the Eurozone and for all banks to be nationalised.

Now her party Proces Constituent is supporting Catalan Independence.

The Benedictine nun, who lives in Montserrat, said: “I am in favour of the independence of my country, because I do believe that for true democracy to be real or possible, you need small political units.”
