Poland may have kicked a near-total abortion ban into the long grass but women’s sexual and reproductive rights have taken a hit in the last year, campaigners have told Euronews.
Around 100,000 people hit the streets on October 3 last year to protest against moves to outlaw all cases of women terminating their pregnancies.
The civil disobedience – called the Black Protest – forced the government to abandon the proposals
But activists claim women’s rights have still been hit over the last year as the government introduced more subtle changes to discourage abortion.
