The international pro-abortion group FEMEN is at it again, this time launching a crude attack against President-elect Donald Trump.

Reuters reports the group sent a topless activist to disrupt an unveiling ceremony at the wax museum in Madrid. The unveiling included a new life-size wax statue of Trump, according to the report.

The bare-chested woman reportedly pushed past security and walked up to the statue, grabbed the crotch and screamed “grab patriarchy by the balls.” She also had the words painted on her back.

Here’s more from Reuters:

Museum staff spent several minutes trying to restrain the woman before eventually bundling her out through a back door.

The activist group claimed responsibility for the protest on Twitter, saying: “FEMEN just grabbed Trump’s statue by the balls in Madrid.” In a recording leaked last October, Trump spoke of grabbing women “by the pussy”.

Gonzalo Presa, head of communications at the museum, called the woman’s protest “unpleasant” and said he had hoped to give a “special welcome” to Donald Trump from Madrid.

Trump once described himself as pro-choice on abortion, but later said he became pro-life after learning of a family friend who almost was aborted. In the past several months, Trump has nominated a number of pro-life leaders to his administration and made promises to sign bills that would ban late-term abortions and defund the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

The pro-abortion group FEMEN has a reputation for topless protests across the world. In 2014, they protested Pope Francis in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican. They also have protested pro-life rallies. During one rally in Spain, the topless protesters disrupted the event with chants of “Pro-life is genocide” and “Go to Hell.”

Last year, they also disrupted the Walk for Life in San Francisco. Police arrested the pro-abortion protesters after they removed their shirts and bared their breasts in front of the pro-life crowd, which included children. A video shows some of the protesters had obscenities painted on their chests.
