Please pray Spanish abortion law won't succeed

Sadly the lower house of the Spanish parliament has passed the government's radical pro-abortion bill. The bill now goes to the Senate. If it passes the senate, it will return to the lower house for final approval, and then to the King for him to sign. It is reported that the Senate will agree to the law. This is despite the warning by Spain's bishops that those who vote for the law risk excommunication.

The position of the king is especially poignant from a Catholic perspective. Among his historic titles is "His Catholic Majesty" and "King of Jerusalem". He was born in exile in Rome during the pro-abortion regime which deposed his grandfather. Prominent Catholics are calling for him to withhold his assent from the law or abdicate temporarily, but this is regarded as unlikely.

Please pray for Spain, for Spanish unborn children and for Spain's governing class, that a miracle will stop this most unChristian law.
