Family Planning in Paris degraded and covered with anti-abortion slogans

2021-06-18T09:21:44.956Z

Stickers representing a fetus and a dagger were stuck on the front of a reception center located in the 10th arrondissement,



It was an employee of the reception center who noticed the damage on Monday morning.

On the night of June 13 to 14, individuals stuck anti-abortion images on the storefront of one of the family planning centers in Paris, located in the 10th arrondissement.

"These images represent a fetus and a dagger, which implies that abortion would be a crime," says Caroline Rebhi, co-president of Family Planning.

The stickers are based on our typographic charter.

They were probably stuck by anti-choice activists.

"

The Family Planning of Paris filed a complaint for degradation of premises and offense of obstruction, Monday, before reacting and condemning the facts in a press release in the evening.

This is the second time in less than a month that the family planning premises have suffered damage of this type.

Similar facts occurred in a reception center in Nantes (Loire-Atlantique) on May 21.

[CP] Once again, one of the branches of Family Planning is attacked!

All the support for Family Planning activists!

Abortion is a fundamental right!

The debate on the extension of the legal duration for abortion in the background

"These attacks are linked and accentuated by the context around the bioethics bill, in particular on questions of assisted reproduction and on the extension of abortion periods", according to Caroline Rebhi.

The bill, which includes the opening of medically assisted procreation for all, was adopted by the National Assembly on June 9, and must still pass before the Senate before a final adoption scheduled for the end of the month.

Degradation and “repeated small attacks” are on the increase, worries the co-president of Family Planning.

“Anti-choice activists are well organized and very active at national and European level, without really knowing which group they are.

This violence runs through our heads because we know that our association can be a target, ”says Caroline Rebhi.

Following these degradations, the services of the mayor of Paris gave their support to the Family Planning of Paris and helped to clean the storefront.

Élisabeth Moreno, Minister Delegate in charge of Equality between Women and Men, condemned the facts, recalling that “the right to abortion is an inalienable right of women.

We will defend it wherever it is called into question.

"

I strongly condemn the new attack on @leplanning.



The right to abortion is an inalienable right of women.



We will defend it wherever it is called into question. # NeRienLissentPasser https://t.co/wCb0fczihT
