Topless Femen activists disrupt Mass at Swedish cathedral
Toting a sign in English reading "Catholic Church out of my body" and chanting "my body, my rules,” a trio of shirtless Femen protesters invaded the Catholic Cathedral in Stockholm during evening Mass on January 30, reports LifeSiteNews.
Smeared with fake blood and sporting coat hangers and slogans saying "abortion is sacred" written across their chests, the three women disrupted the Mass for a few moments before being whisked away by church members and staff.
A woman who hustled one of the protesters away is heard to say "Shame on you!" in a video of the incident.
The attack, planned in response to the Spanish government’s recently proposed bill to restrict abortion, was obviously well organized as the group had photographers on hand to record the protest.
The Femen website states that their attack on the Swedish church "is a continuation of the sequence of mass European protests against wild law to ban abortion, discussed in Spanish parliament."
The "sextremists," as they call themselves, used the same props and slogans in an attack on the Archbishop of Madrid, Cardinal Antonio Rouco Varela, on February 2, also in a protest over the proposed Spanish bill.
