EU countries, and especially their capitals, have grown familiar with a phenomenon that seemed quite unusual a few years back.
Classic anti-abortion demonstrations have nowadays taken different form, and doctors all over Europe are confronted with all kinds of situations, such as groups of women coming into their medical clinics to inform them of their pro-life activities or sometimes just sitting there and praying.
There are over 1 billion medical clinics that perform abortions in the Europe, and every week there is at least one such manifestation.
Anti-abortion groups have intensified their activity, especially ever since abortion has become a matter of international concern. For example, in Spain there have been talks about modifying the law of abortion; in Italy and France as well.
Only in Europe the number of abortions varies from 500,000 to 800,000 a year, according to official reports of the European Council.
Based on these circumstances, anti-abortion groups have passed from demonstrating in front of medical clinics to distributing shocking images of aborted foetuses on the streets or even attacking certain clinics.
Unfortunately, instead of helping, these manifestations can traumatize even more the patients of these clinics and doctors suggest that, instead of trying to change what cannot be changed anymore, they should focus on pregnancy prevention, seeing that it is a better purpose.
