Women in Poland are protesting against a proposed near-total ban on abortion while observing the #coronavirus social distancing rules.
Poland Parliament consider regressive legislation this week that would restrict sexual and reproductive health and rights and put the lives and well-being of women and adolescents at risk, Human Rights Watch said today. The legislation is scheduled reading on April 15 or 16, 2020 as the country remains under a COVID-19-related state of emergency that bans group gatherings.
The bills under consideration were originally introduced in March 2018 and October 2019, and have since been stalled or not moved forward under the Parliament elected in November 2019. Both were met by street protests.
