I love Spain. And I’m damn proud of it, too, for publicly pursuing a liberalised abortion policy. What a giddy delight to see a nation actively seeking to establish rights, freedom and respect for women – unlike, say, America.
“We can’t have a situation where a woman who needs to terminate a pregnancy can have legal problems…. [we must] guarantee the fundamental rights and legality of women and the professionals who attend them,” says Bibiana Aido – the Minister for Equality (Spain has a minister for equality – hurrah!)
God, I love the PSOE. Gay marriage, abortion rights, Carma Chacón – the pacifist woman Defence Minister (who took the post when seven months pregnant) and the rather dashing President, Jose Luis Zapatero. The mousy conservatism of Anglo-Saxon politics pales in comparison.
