1.2 million people have turned out on the streets of Madrid to protest an attempt to liberalise Spain's relatively sane and sensible abortion law.

Inasmuch as Spain's Socialist Party is an assemblage of angry activists still bent on making Holy Church pay for Franco, we are not suprised at the reaction of "Equality Minister" Bibiana Aido.

Equality Minister Bibiana Aido, who pushed the reforms, said she had "total respect" for the protesters, but added that "nobody has a monopoly on morality."

"No woman can be penalized for taking such a difficult decision as that of abortion," she told AFP.

Equality, it seems, only applies if you're born.
