The radical pro-abortion feminists who like to make a statement by going topless and then desecrating churches and attacking pro-life people are at it again. This time the violent mob of abortion activists attempted to desecrate an Argentine cathedral and threw stones and bottles at Catholics praying the rosary in front of the church on Sunday.

The pro-abortion mob hurled projectiles at police and people standing outside protecting the church and later started a fire just a few yards away from the steps of the church.


The Catholic News Agency has more on what happened:

The feminist activists bared their chests, on which they had painted phrases such as “I had an abortion” and “I choose.” They approached the cathedral in Mar del Plata Oct. 11 shouting “the Church is a piece of trash, you’re a dictatorship.”

The activists were among the tens of thousands of participants in the 30th National Meeting of Women. They were pushed back by local police. Authorities had set up a railing around the church and stationed police there in anticipation of an attack.

The abortion supporters knocked down part of the protective railing and police reacted with tear gas and rubber bullets. The most violent demonstrators were arrested but released soon after.

Martin Patrito, the president of the pro-life group ArgentinosAlerta, told CNA the incident is “the first time the police got involved” to protect a Catholic church from attacks by abortion activists. He considered police involvement to be progress.

Prior to the incident, ArgentinosAlerta launched a petition asking the authorities for a police presence to counter the violence of the abortion advocates.

The residents of Mar del Plata are outraged by the violence unleashed by the abortion activists and their hatred against the Catholic Church, Patrito said.

He criticized the activists for “running at the mouth talking about women’s rights, but it seems they can’t stand the right to religious freedom.”
