MADRID (AP) - An anti-abortion rally in Spain by Christian groups has been disrupted by a five topless women from the feminist group Femen chanting "Abortion is sacred."

Rally participants tried to grab hold of the topless women and hit some of them with red spray paint before police intervened to stop the melee in downtown Madrid.

It was one of 46 such rallies planned in Spanish cities and towns on Sunday in support of a possible government proposal to add restrictions to a law that allows abortion until the 14th week of pregnancy.

Three female Femen members staged a topless protest in Spain's Parliament on Oct. 9 as Justice Minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon, an advocate to more abortion restrictions, addressed the lawmakers.
