Mafalda Images Being Illegally Used in Anti-Abortion Campaign

The Comics Reporter and Telesur are reporting that comic character Mafalda is being dragged into the abortion debate in her native Argentina.

Mafalda cartoonist Quino has released a statement:

“Images showing Mafalda wearing a blue scarf, which symbolizes opposition to the voluntary interruption of pregnancy law, are spreading. I don’t authorize it; it doesn’t represent my stance, and I demand it be removed.”
