Polish women travel abroad for abortions ahead of law change

Support services in Poland and abroad say numbers increasing even before legislation is tightened

A constitutional court ruling in October that abortion is illegal even in cases of severe foetal abnormalities triggered major protests across the country

Polish women are increasingly being forced to travel abroad to seek abortions even though a court ruling to tighten the country’s already strict laws has not yet coming into force, activists have said.

The constitutional court ruled in October that abortion was illegal even in cases where there were severe foetal abnormalities. Around 1,000 abortions a year – almost all of the country’s legal abortion procedures – are carried out for this reason.

Justyna Wydrzyńska, of the NGO Abortion Dream Team, which runs an advice hotline, said the group could already feel the chilling effect of the ruling. Calls to the hotline have increased, including from women who awaiting the results of tests on foetal abnormalities, and from many who are not pregnant yet but are alarmed by the ruling.

“They want to find out what choices they would have if they do get pregnant and find themselves in a situation of foetal abnormalities,” she said. The number of calls has gone up from 20 or 30 per day to around 100, with confusion over the ruling and the logistical difficulties of travelling during the coronavirus pandemic on people’s minds.

Surveys show that few Poles support tighter abortion restrictions, but ultra-conservative elements in the ruling coalition have long wanted such a move. The chairman of the Law and Justice party (PiS), Jarosław Kaczyński, said in 2016: “We will strive to ensure that even cases of very difficult pregnancies, when the child is certain to die, very deformed, still end up in a birth, so that the child can be baptised, buried, have a name.”

Joan that poor girl suffered the unthinkable from an adult man, only to later be taunted and treated appallingly by her so-called friends, I can't believe the behaviour of some people. Where was the fraternity from her peers?

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 20, 2020 at 4:45

I just now read the story of the 13-year-old girl, raped by an adult and tormented by her peers. I surely hope she has good support from family, friends, and community.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 20, 2020 at 4:37

If rape is not about sex but about power, what devices could a girl or woman use to equalize her power?

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 20, 2020 at 4:16

Mrs.B a great reframing of "regulating a man's body" perfectly catches the principle! 

Comment by Chris B on October 20, 2020 at 2:39

And now a smart way to prevent rape...

Bloody cruel.

People can be so mean, can't they?

Comment by Mrs.B on July 28, 2020 at 13:56

As if her life wasn't ruined enough.
