Lara Dimitrijevic is on a mission to overturn Malta’s pro-life laws.
A lawyer in the small European country, Dimitrijevic founded the Women’s Rights Foundation in 2013 to fight for legalized abortion.
“I can’t stand injustices. And maybe that’s because I had a good upbringing and because my personal situation is good,” Dimitrijevic told The Times of Malta in a recent interview.
Her organization works on a number of issues, including domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking. However, one of its primary focuses right now is to legalize the killing of unborn babies in Malta.
Malta is one of the few countries left in Europe that protects unborn babies’ right to life, and increasingly it has become a target of abortion activists. A few years ago, international abortion activists accused Malta of “torture” because the country protects unborn babies’ lives.
Dimitrijevic’s organization is one of the driving forces behind the abortion push. According to the report:
WRF entered the national consciousness last year when it organised a clamorous protest in Valletta and later successfully campaigned for the introduction of the morning-after pill. And, in recent weeks, WRF called for a debate about reproductive rights, including abortion, a call that has provoked a vehement uproar.
In November, she bashed Malta’s pro-life laws, claiming the country is burying “its head in the sand” on abortion. Dimitrijevic joined Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights Nils Muižnieks in calling for a public debate on the legalization of abortion in Malta.

When asked why she is so dedicated to the abortion issue, Dimitrijevic said she feels compelled to fight for justice for women.
“I was never discriminated against in my upbringing,” she said. “But I realised that the way I grew up was not the norm. Then I began working in a detention centre with immigrant women and children, and that really affected me – the abuse they suffered made me miserable. And when I started dealing with family affairs in court, especially in the area of domestic violence, I realised many women are suffering. It is these things that prompted me to set up the foundation.”
Yet, by supporting abortion, she is supporting discrimination and violence against another vulnerable group of human beings – unborn babies, many of whom are girls. Abortions destroy living, unique unborn babies in brutal, barbaric ways, including through poisoning or dismemberment.
Legalizing abortion does not provide true equality or justice to women, either. Instead, it gives society another excuse to not support pregnant and parenting mothers. When abortion is legal, women in vulnerable situations are pushed to end the lives of their unborn children, rather than provided with the support and encouragement that they deserve.
