La Federaci贸n Espa艅ola de Asociaciones Provida (FEAP) y Derecho a Vivir (DAV) han criticado la "agresividad" y la "actitud antidemocr谩tica" de las j贸venes del colectivo Femen que este martes se han encaramado semidesnudas a la tribuna de invitados del Congreso de los diputados para interrumpir la intervenci贸n del ministro de Justicia, Alberto Ruiz Gallard贸n, al grito de "el aborto es sagrado".

MADRID (ACI/Europa Press) - "Es un hecho lamentable y una provocaci贸n que refleja bastante la manera de actuar y los pocos argumentos que tienen para defender algo cuando no era el momento ni el tema", seg煤n ha indicado la presidenta de FEAP, Alicia Latorre, en declaraciones a Europa Press.

Por otra parte, las asociaciones han pedido que "se trate el tema del aborto con la gravedad que merece" y que "no se desv铆e la atenci贸n". En este sentido, han criticado que, con acciones como esta, las feministas radicales tratan de "enmascarar el problema y no afrontarlo", seg煤n ha indicado Latorre.

La portavoz de DAV, G谩dor Joya, ha criticado que haya personas "capaces de ir contra su propia dignidad y la de todas las mujeres, convirtiendo sus cuerpos en una suerte de mercanc铆a pol铆tica, con tal de defender el aborto".

De hecho, ha insistido en que, acciones como la de Femen, "pone en evidencia la ausencia de recursos cient铆ficos, intelectuales, sociales o morales para defender el aborto", por parte del colectivo.

Adem谩s, ha reclamado "un feminismo que s铆 crea en la mujer y en su dignidad, incluso antes de nacer, y que rechace la utilizaci贸n ideol贸gica de su cuerpo".

Por otra parte, Latorre ha criticado la aprobaci贸n de algunos diputados de Izquierda Unida que han aplaudido la actuaci贸n de las feministas en el Congreso y ha lamentado la "violencia verbal e incluso f铆sica" que, a su juicio, utilizan algunos colectivos vinculados ideol贸gica o econ贸micamente al aborto.

En este sentido, ha se艅alado que la acci贸n de Femen estaba "muy bien pensada" y ha llamado la atenci贸n sobre la consigna "el aborto es sagrado" que, en su opini贸n, es una provocaci贸n, al "darle la vuelta" a la consigna de la Conferencia Episcopal Espa艅ola de que "la vida es sagrada".
