MADRID (ACI/EWTN Noticias) - La plataforma ciudadana ha realizado una acci贸n en el paseo de la Castellana de Madrid, junto al monumento a la Carta Magna para recordar que todos los d铆as son d铆as de difuntos en Espa艅a desde que se aprob贸 el aborto en el pa铆s.

El acto de protesta contra el aborto se realiz贸 este 31 de octubre. Estos ata煤des tambi茅n han sido repartidos entre personalidades del gobierno espa艅ol como el presidente de Espa艅a, Mariano Rajoy; la vicepresidenta, Soraya S谩enz de Santamar铆a; y el ministro de Justicia, Alberto Ruiz Gallard贸n, entre otros para recordar los millones de beb茅s no nacidos
Por su parte, la plataforma Hazte O铆r (HO) ha salido a la calle para recordar los miles de abortos que se realizan en Espa艅a cada a艅o desde que se aprob贸 la ley del aborto en 1985. Por eso, tomando como hilo conductor el d铆a de los difuntos, la plataforma ciudadana ha montado un cementerio simulado con m谩s de 300 ata煤des blancos en el paseo de la Castellana de Madrid.

Ignacio Arsuaga, presidente de la asociaci贸n y portavoz de la plataforma Derecho a Vivir, ha declarado que "en Espa艅a todos los d铆as son d铆as de difuntos por el aborto, una realidad inaceptable en una sociedad evolucionada y de progreso, que adem谩s contraviene nuestra Constituci贸n".

Bajo esta misma premisa Hazte O铆r y Derecho a Vivir han organizado el pr贸ximo 17 de noviembre la IV Marcha por la Vida para pedir al Gobierno que no retrase ni un d铆a m谩s la reforma de la ley del aborto.

Junto al monumento a la Constituci贸n, HO ha pedido el cumplimiento efectivo del art铆culo 15 de la Carta Magna espa艅ola que se艅ala que "todos tienen derecho a la vida y a la integridad f铆sica y moral, sin que, en ning煤n caso, puedan ser sometidos a tortura ni a penas o tratos inhumanos o degradantes. Queda abolida la pena de muerte, salvo lo que puedan disponer las leyes penales militares para tiempos de guerra".

Por eso Ignacio Arsuaga ha asegurado que "tanto el esp铆ritu como la letra de la Constituci贸n en este art铆culo est谩n siendo conculcados desde 1985". En concreto, "la leyes han permitido desde hace casi 30 a艅os el atentado constante contra la integridad f铆sica de los hijos en el seno de sus madres, hasta provocar una muerte cruel y violenta que s贸lo es calificable de tortura inhumana y degradante".

En ese sentido el presidente de Hazte O铆r ha afirmado que "estamos aqu铆 para reclamar que el 煤tero sea aut茅nticamente una zona libre de pena de muerte, que la legislaci贸n proteja como ordena la Constituci贸n y se艅ala la Declaraci贸n Universal de los Derechos Humanos el derecho a la vida de todos los seres humanos".

Finalmente invit贸 a los ciudadanos que se unan a la pr贸xima manifestaci贸n del 17 de noviembre que tendr谩 lugar en Madrid y en muchas ciudades de Espa艅a "para reclamar al Gobierno que cumpla su promesa de legislar a favor de la protecci贸n de la vida humana".
