Help women and girls in Poland fight dangerous new restrictions on abortion

Women and girls’ rights are under attack right now in Poland. 

Poland already has one of the most restrictive abortion laws in Europe.  Abortion is only allowed if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest, if the woman’s life is in danger or in cases of severe or fatal foetal impairment.

Now, the Parliament is considering a bill to add even more restrictions to this very limited access.

If it goes ahead, this proposed bill will remove severe or fatal foetus impairment from the list of permitted grounds - putting many women’s health at serious risk.

We know that together, we can stop this. In October 2016, after people took to the streets and campaigned online across the country and attracted huge amounts of international attention and support, the Parliament rejected a bill to impose a near-total ban on abortions.

Let’s make this happen again.

Act now to support the rights of women and girls in Poland. Sign the petition to call on the President and Polish Parliament to reject further restrictions to the abortion law.
