ZAGREB, June 19, 2020 – Former president Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic has joined women who have shown their middle finger at statements about abortion made by Homeland Movement leader Miroslav Skoro and some other politicians, making an off the photo of herself with her middle finger extended.

“I am joining all women who with this ‘indecent’ act are showing their stand and raising their voice against those who are trying to take us centuries back,” Grabar-Kitarovic told the Jutarnji List daily, to which she sent her photo.

The former president said the time was gone when men made decisions for women.

“I have always advocated life but I have also advocated a life that has the right to choose. Without pressure, without stigmatisation and without conditions, particularly in the most sensitive situations such as rape,” Grabar-Kitarovic said, adding that she had shown her middle finger as a sign of support for “us women and our rights as well as for men who support us.”

Grabar-Kitarovic’s statement was one in a number of reactions prompted by Skoro’s statement that “if a woman becomes pregnant after being raped, she should agree with her family what to do next.”

Commenting on those reactions, Skoro said that his statements were being taken out of context because there was nothing he or the election candidates of the Homeland Movement could be reproached for.
