PL politics, women's rights, PLEASE boost 

The Constitutional Court of Poland (which includes illegally appointed judges) just made a ruling regarding abortion law.

Abortion in PL is now illegal for p. much ANY reason. Women will be forced to give birth not just to children that result from rape. It'll actually be illegal to abort a foetus without lungs or a brain. No, this is not an exaggeration.

This is a EU country in 2020. Difficult to imagine, right?

Please boost to make this widely known.

For context: the current Constitutional Court is pretty much a bunch of lapdogs for the ruling, conservative Catholic party.

They tried a few times to introduce a harsher abortion law, but chickened out after extremely widespread protests.

So they figured they'd change the situation via Constitutional Court ruling, while pretending to keep their hands clean.

This is unbelievably evil, but I guess that's how ultra-conservative Catholics roll.

Correction: Abortion of foetuses conceived as a result of crime or in situations of danger to the mother are currently allowed, but

A) It's still egregious.

B) A conservative politician in today's discussion on TVN said that they (PIS Party) will be working towards banning abortion altogether. She said it explicitly on television. Didn't even hide behind a euphemism.

@glitchyhare thank you for the correction.

A near-complete ban on abortion in 2020, in a country that's part of the European Union, is still insane.

There's no major country in Europe (nost jut EU) with abortion law even NEAR that restrictive.

The abortion law in Malta is less strict. And Malta is a country that was literally founded as a religious order.

No problem! And I agree with all of your statements there.

The politician, Lidia I think was her name, when asked if she thought 12 year olds should be forced to give birth, said that "no 12 year old should ever get pregnant" and when it was pointed out that the question was about rape, she just avoided it.

She also said people should be forced to give birth to terminally ill babies. And all she proposed was counseling.
