There have been massive protests in Poland as a new law went into effect yesterday. Poland had already severely restricted abortion, but the new law prevents abortion in the case of fetal abnormalities. Polish women are very opposed to the new law.


"A contentious near-total ban on abortion in Poland went into effect late Wednesday, despite rampant opposition from hundreds of thousands of Poles who began protesting in the fall in the largest demonstrations in the country since the 1989 collapse of communism.

Thousands of outraged women, teenagers and allies returned to the streets Wednesday night bundled up against the cold after word that a ruling that halts the termination of pregnancies for fetal abnormalities — virtually the only kind of abortion performed in Poland — would come into force."
