Spanish leftists try to censor pro-life play


“Vidiana: Abortion Clinic,” tells the story of seven pregnant women who plan to have abortions, but change their minds after an eighth pregnant woman convinces them to keep their children. It is scheduled to be shown in the city government’s Alcazaba Cultural Center.

The play’s director, Isidro Leyva, notes that it is “very descriptive, with difficult moments in which it is explained, for example, how abortions are done.”

Representatives of Merdia’s United Left want the government to remove the play from its municipal theater, claiming that it constitutes a “stigmatization of the women who find themselves obligated to carry out this kind of intervention (abortion), which results in the deterioration in the social image of women who submit to an absolutely legal procedure.”

They think "stigmatization of women" is worthy of censorship, but not stigmatization of Catholics and other Christians. This shows that they do not believe in true equality, but in favoritism for certain groups.
