Madrid (dpa) - Three members of the feminist group Femen on
Wednesday interrupted a session of the Spanish parliament, staging a
topless protest against the conservative government‘s plans to
tighten access to abortion.

The women entered parliament‘s public gallery during a session
which had several subjects on its agenda, but which was not
discussing abortion.

They took their tops off and shouted, "Abortion is sacred!" Police
had to force them out of the building.

The group of Ukrainian origin, which is known for its topless
protests, had not had much presence in Spain.

Government representatives accused the women of violating the
rules of democracy.

Justice Minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon, who is planning to end
the availability of abortion on demand in the initial stages of
pregnancy, said he found the women‘s slogan "impossible to
understand."

But far-left leader Cayo Lara said the women had the right to
"defend the right to abortion."
