Three days before the elections and on the occasion of the International Day of Safe Abortion, the debate on law 194 which regulates the voluntary termination of pregnancy is rekindled.
Presidia and mobilizations took place in almost all the regions of Italy to claim "free, safe and gratuitous" abortion.
In Milan, Rome, Bologna, Cagliari, Brescia, Palermo, Catania, Florence, Verona, Genoa, Reggio Calabria, Modena, Naples, Catania, Turin, the militants of 'Non Una di Meno' took to the squares - about 50 per the promoters - with the slogan: "We are furious. The fuchsia tide is rising!".
They took to the streets with the "Iranian sisters in the heart" because "their struggle is our struggle" thus recalling the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini,
occurred after his arrest in Tehran for wearing the veil badly.
Deans attended by students, counselors and anti-violence centers to remember that since the beginning of the year, "73 victims of gender-based violence".
And this year to fuel the 'fury' of the movement is the electoral affirmation of Giorgia Meloni and of the right defined by those who demonstrate "racist and anti-abortion".
For the militants of the feminist movement 'Non una di Meno "a woman premier like Giorgia Meloni" is not a victory for women "since" she wants to guarantee the right to' not have an abortion ', cancel the rights of transgender people and the education of differences ".

Among the many slogans rhythmized by the square:" L 'abortion is not a crime, conscientious objection to state violence ".
On the other hand, the assurances of Meloni herself, and of her loyalists, on the intention not to touch the 194 plant were worthless. Even if in the Regional Council of Liguria the Fdi group abstained during the vote day on the 'right of women to choose the voluntary termination of pregnancy' and a regional law proposal of 2021 also provides pro-life branches in hospitals.
For the national coordinator of Brothers of Italy Giovanni Donzelli "the exponents of Fdi, also in Liguria, are fully convinced that law 194 must be implemented but they wanted to amend to also speak of article 5 which also guarantees to those who have doubts or are in economic difficulty "stressing that" there is no
For some time now "Non una di less" has complained that in Italy the conscientious objection of medical personnel has reached "almost 70%", there is a constant reduction in the number of clinics "much less than one for every 20,000 inhabitants" and lack of investment on sex education and free contraception.
An invitation to reflect and above all to defend the 194 comes from the mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala, while in the opinion of the Umbra Network for 'Self-determination:' The new Meloni government will not touch law 194, and probably will, but it is enough not to apply it and make impossible and difficult the path, not giving information, closing the counseling centers, changing operators "to make life difficult for women.
