Video of Spanish police beating up women in peaceful protest goes viral

A video of Spanish police violently beating up a group of women during a demonstration has gone viral. The women were protesting a draft bill that restricts the right to abort, only allowing the procedure in cases of rape and when there is a health risk.

The video, released by the Periodismo Humano news site, following the protest on Friday, has taken YouTube by storm, racking up over 300,000 views over the weekend.
