Wielding coat hangers, a coalition of sixty abortion rights groups organized a rally in Warsaw, Poland, over the weekend to protest a proposed law that would further restrict legal abortions in the country.
One of the protesters, Anna Jakobic, said that the right to an abortion must be defended, especially if one has a baby with disabilities. “No government can decide this. Maybe they also want to prohibit oncological operations? Cancer is also live tissue,” she said.
Poland’s current legislation, dating back to 1993, bans abortions except when the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest, poses a “health risk” to the mother, or if the fetus bears an anomaly, such as Down Syndrome.
