Turnout was about 40%, far less than the 50% required, but of those who did vote, 59.3% backed a proposed change to the current law.

In the words of a commentator, Portugal has "gone down the toilet".
The murderers have achieved their goal in Portugal.
If past trends in other European nations are any indication of what is to be, abortion rates in Portugal will soar in the first years after decriminalization, possibly leading to demographic collapse in a nation with already very worrisome birth rates.
With Portugal out of the way, only three countries remain in Europe stand in the way of death: Ireland, Poland, and Malta.
We remember the words of Father Seraphim Rose:
And we must be crucified outwardly, in the eyes of the world; for Christ's Kingdom is not of this world, and the world cannot bear it, even a single representative of it, even for a single moment. The world can only accept Antichrist, now or at any time.
No wonder, then, that it is hard to be a Christian - it is not hard, it is impossible. No one can knowingly accept a way of life which, the more truly it is lived, leads the more surely to one's own destruction.
