Poland’s highest court has declared almost all forms of abortion unconstitutional, tightening anti-choice laws that were already among the most restrictive in Europe. Protesters marched on the Constitutional Tribunal in Warsaw Thursday just after the court’s ruling.
Joanna Maraszek: “What the government is doing to us today is not only taking away our women’s rights, but also our human rights. For the first time, we can confidently say that in Poland we have the worst abortion law in Europe.”
Following Thursday’s ruling, Poland will only allow abortions in cases of rape, incest or a threat to the pregnant person’s health and life.
