Apparently not satisfied with its standings in the “Top 5 Worst European Countries to be a Woman in,” Polish Catholic lobbyists have pushed for yet another abortion restriction following the coattails of the nationwide protest on their previous proposal: Criminalizing abortions performed on fetuses with fatal or severe abnormalities.
Polish protesters have launched fresh demonstrations against efforts to further tighten abortion laws.
Women’s rights activists held a rally outside the parliament building in Warsaw, with more action expected on Monday.
Poland’s MPs rejected a near-total ban on abortions on 6 October after mass protests against the move.
But there are new proposals to outlaw abortions in cases where foetuses are unviable or badly damaged.
Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of the governing Law and Justice Party (PiS), has said his socially conservative party is working on a new restrictive bill.
In an interview on 12 October (in Polish), he said: “We will strive to ensure that even in pregnancies which are very difficult, when a child is sure to die, strongly deformed, women end up giving birth so that the child can be baptised, buried, and have a name.”
Un-fucking-believable. Leave it to Catholic men to tell women they have to give birth to something that is dead all cloaked under the guise of a fucking fairy tale. This thinly-veiled attempt to punish women for existing outside the patriarchal confines of the Catholic church must fail.
Fuck Kaczynski. Again this fucker fails to even let women enter the frame when he thinks about this issue.
Gettin real angry at conservative men in politics these days.
