Femen protester topless against Vatican abortion stance
Plain-clothes officers prevent arrival in St Peter's19 December, 15:24
On her arm the word "abortion" was written in red. As tourists and reporters snapped photos, plain-clothes officers covered her and prevented her from reaching St Peter's.
She was shouting pro-choice slogans as police put her inside a squad car. During the conclave that elected Pope Francis in March, a FEMEN protester was arrested for bearing her breasts in St Peter's Square and shouting "Pope no more!". In February, shortly after Benedict XVI announced his abdication, eight bare-chested members of the group stormed Notre Dame cathedral in Paris to "celebrate the pope's farewell".
