The demonstrators’ action drew scattered applause from a handful of opposition deputies.<br /> <br /> Following the protest, one woman was identified as Lara Alcazar, the leader of Femen in Spain, the other two activists are reportedly French.<br /> <br /> Spain’s abortion laws are to be reformed, overseen by Mr Ruiz-Gallardon, which is widely predicted to make them more restrictive. Under current laws passed by the previous Socialist government in 2010, abortion is available under all circumstances up until the 14th week of pregnancy and up to 22 weeks if the foetus is deformed.<br /> <br /> Mr Ruiz-Gallardon criticised the protest as a “total lack of respect for popular sovereignty, as embodied in Congress”.<br /> <br /> Following their removal from parliament, the three women, who had “Abortion is Sacred” painted on their upper bodies, were taken into police custody.<br /> <br /> Ms Alcazar was released, although she is due to receive a court summons about the protest. In Spain, the penalties for unauthorised protests in parliament range from fines up to a year in prison.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/femen-activists-disrupt-spanish-parliament-with-topless-protest-against-conservative-abortion-law-reforms-8869056.html">http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/femen-activists-disrupt-spanish-parliament-with-topless-protest-against-conservative-abortion-law-reforms-8869056.html</a> Texas abortion legislation raises concerns tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2013-08-03:2182797:Video:2279848 2013-08-03T09:48:59.307Z Napoleon Bonaparte http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/napoleonbonaparte <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/topless-feminist-protest-in-spain-s-parliament-over-abortion"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/WnmTYkV-edJLT-sw0-TEGFgY1QyoJ5GNScxbhqdP*ysnVg2xHUPto5idYcO10PFY1YcXh6DGvE6MT9oV3QQiHJQRIWPKX9--/1041244832.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Health officials fear new ban on abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy might force clinics to close in US state.<br></br> <br></br> There are concerns that the new ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy in the US state of Texas could put women's lives at risk.<br></br> <br></br> The legislation, among other things, requires abortion providers to upgrade… <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/topless-feminist-protest-in-spain-s-parliament-over-abortion"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/WnmTYkV-edJLT-sw0-TEGFgY1QyoJ5GNScxbhqdP*ysnVg2xHUPto5idYcO10PFY1YcXh6DGvE6MT9oV3QQiHJQRIWPKX9--/1041244832.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Health officials fear new ban on abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy might force clinics to close in US state.<br /> <br /> There are concerns that the new ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy in the US state of Texas could put women's lives at risk.<br /> <br /> The legislation, among other things, requires abortion providers to upgrade their facilities. These are costly measures that critics say are unnecessary and could force clinics to close their doors for good.<br /> <br /> Health officials fear that a black market in so-called 'abortion pills' could fill the gap - if clinics are forced to close.
