Lifesite News reported:
Topless Femen activists attacked the Archbishop of Madrid, Cardinal Antonio Rouco Varela, this past Sunday night as he got out of his car and tried to enter a Madrid parish to celebrate Mass. The activists blamed the cardinal for the Spanish government’s bill seeking to restrict abortion.
The feminists threw bloodstained underwear at the cardinal while pushing their bare breasts onto him and shouting “Abortion is sacred” and vulgarities.
“The archbishop has suffered a rain of panties soaked with the blood of our illegal abortions,” reads the Femen website. “This moment has lead him to a mystic experience.”
Parishioners aided the cardinal into the church and were forced to close the church doors.
According to Femen, the attack happened as a request for a “total stop” of the reform that is seeking to restrict abortion in Spain.
“If this does not happen, our naked war will continue against anyone who threaten (sic) our right to abort!” says their site.
