President says abortion laws are abused in Poland
Nov 7, 2017
Polish abortion laws, which allow for termination of pregnancies when foetuses are severely damaged, are being abused, Polish President Andrzej Duda has told Catholic broadcaster TV Trwam.
Duda said removing deformed and seriously ill foetuses was “eugenic abortion”, adding that “decidedly tougher legal solutions” needed to be introduced.
A group of pro-life activists in September launched a “Stop Abortions” petition to toughen anti-abortion laws so that it would be forbidden to terminate pregnancies when the foetus is deformed.
