Poland’s new abortion laws: Scuffles break out between police and protesters in Warsaw

Published on October 24, 2020 by

The protesters who gathered in many cities defied a COVID-19 related ban on gatherings that was imposed nationwide.

It means that a pregnancy that endangers a woman’s health or life, or that has resulted from rape or other illegal acts are now the only legal grounds for obtaining an abortion.
