Support Polish protests against anti-abortions laws!
Polish people have been on strike and protesting the Polish government since October because of the near-total ban on abortions that the Polish government imposed on 23rd October.
The ban included cases where the fetus will die or have serious defects.
WHAT IS HAPPENING IN POLAND?
On 28th January, after almost 100 days, the restriction law was published, taking away Polish people's rights.
Why call it a near-total ban?
Since 1993, Poland has only permitted abortions in 3 cases:
1) When a pregnancy endangers a person's life,
2) If the pregnacy is the result of rape
3) If there are fetal abnormalities.
Just last year, 97% of abortions were due to fetal defects. That was 1074 of 1100 abortions performed in Polish hospitals This ban has made abortion in Poland impossible.
That’s why Strajk Kobiet (Polish Women on Strike) fight for FREE, SAFE and LEGAL abortion for polish women. Why is the Polish government passing such a conservative law against women? What influence does the Catholic church have on Polish politics?
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
You can sign Strajk Kobiet's petition and open letter to Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki asking to support uterus-bearing people in Poland. You can help the Federation for Women and Family Planning and donate through their channels everyone should have the right to access fundamental rights!
