A large-scale demonstration, organized by more than 200 civil society associations, took place in Madrid on Sunday 26 June under the slogan “We are risking our lives” to protest against the new abortion law which will allow abortion from the age of 16 without the consent of the community parents allowed. Under the motto “End the laws against the truth and human nature”, the large-scale demonstration, in which between 20,000 and 100,000 people took part, depending on the source, began at 12 noon at the Glorieta de Bilbao and ended at the Plaza de Colón.

I prefer to be with society to defend those who are not being defended by anyone at the moment,” Abascal told Europa Press while attending the march and taking photos with the participants, who began to tell him ” President, President.” A detail not noticed by the others, who were immense.
Other Vox members also took part in the mass demonstration, such as Iván Espinosa de los Monteros, Rocío Monasterio and Jorge Buxadé.
