It will also have many other nasty consequences, and the law is supported by the leader of the government, who has also made it clear that "most, if not all members of the ruling party will vote in favour of the law".
Numerous cities in Poland will be protesting tomorrow against a legislative project completely banning abortions. Right now, abortion in Poland is illegal except in the following three cases: when the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest; when the life of the pregnant woman is in danger; or when the fetus is severely damaged. This is already one of the most restrictive abortion laws in Europe.
