Ljubljana Cathedral Vandalized with Graffiti

Country: Slovenia

Date of incident: March 8, 2016

Category: Social Hostility / Intolerance

Attack against: Faith

Area of case: Private



The words (translated from Slovenian) "Church get out of my womb" and "RCC (Roman Catholic Church) get out of our vaginas" were sprayed on the wall of the Franciscan church.

This vandalism is suspected to be in response to the vigils in front of the Ljubljana hospital as part of the anti-abortion prayer campaign "40 days for life". Graffiti on a wall opposite the hospital reads (in Slovenian): "take the power from the Church and give it to women".
