A dangerous backward step for women and girls in Poland
Pregnant at 11, a girl raped by her own father, will have no choice but to give birth. Equally, a woman at high risk of dying in childbirth or of carrying a dead baby, will not be able to seek a termination. This will be the impact of new legislation due to be debated on in the Polish parliament later this week which, if passed, would usher in an almost complete ban on abortion.
This is what horror looks like. this is war on women, a violation of human rights and the most inhumane result of what patriarchy + church equals. nothing about this law has anything to do with life, women are life, this is another cruel manifestation of a control-seeking, death-worshipping reign of necrophilia and cowardice.
stop turning our bodies against us. abortion has been a part of human existence since time immemorial. no matter how men feel about it.“furious” doesn’t begin to describe how i feel.
