Poland: Pro-choice protesters rally against planned abortion ban in Warsaw

Hundreds of pro-choice activists gathered in front of the parliament in Warsaw for a protest amid an ongoing review of a proposal to apply stricter conditions for abortion, Monday. People rallied holding pro-choice banners condemning the toughening of the existing legislation that allows women to abort a foetus in cases of rape or incest, when the fetus is diagnosed with a severe or fatal... Еще anomaly or when the woman’s life or health is in danger. This last case is the most common in Poland and would be forbidden under the new law. According to the new law, Polish doctors will stop prenatal diagnosis to inform the expecting mother of the health status of the foetus. The draft of the law is now being reviewed by a special commission before it goes to the parliament for a debate. The abortion law in Poland is already among the most restrictive in Europe.
