Feminists wearing pink masks acted out an abortion on a woman dressed as the Virgin Mary just outside a cathedral in Northern Argentina as part of the International Women's Day protest.
The attempt at "performance art" featured what looked like blood and baby parts coming out of the woman playing Mary as she pushed her fist into the air, as the women in pink masks helped it along. The full photo will be linked at the bottom of this article.
According to LifeSite.com, activists groups rose up in defense of the display such as "Pan y Roses" (Bread and Roses) who wrote a Facebook post saying "from the group of women Pan and Roses and the Party of Socialist Workers we express our solidarity with the companions of Socorro Rosa Tucumán who are being brutally attacked for the performance activity that they carried out in the framework of the International Women's Day."
Socorro Rosa Tucumán stated that the false Virgin Mary was aborting "patriarchy" and "forced heterosexuality." This post has since been removed.
Apparently the Women's Day protest also had other attacks on religious structures and figures in different parts of the world, says LifeSite.
Meanwhile, in Buenos Aires, participants in an International Women's Day march tried to set the city's cathedral on fire. They attacked a lone man who held a Vatican flag and tried to defend the cathedral.
At the Women's March in Washington, D.C. in January 2017, a protester carried a sign depicting Our Lady of Guadalupe as a bloody vagina.
"It is gravely disrespectful to mock the faith of billions of people in the woman whom National Geographic recently described as 'The Most Powerful Woman in the World' in its cover story on the Virgin Mary," Maureen Ferguson of The Catholic Association told LifeSiteNews. "It is also highly ironic for a feminist march protesting femicide to advocate for the right to take human lives, including the lives of female babies. Annually about 25 million little girls are aborted worldwide."
