Helsinki Foundation intervenes over application of abortion ruling

DECEMBER 02, 2020

The Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights (HFHR) has said it is interceding in the matter of Polish hospitals applying a ruling by the Constitutional Tribunal (TK) banning abortions on the grounds of foetal damage even though the ruling has not been published.

The foundation said there was no legal basis to deny women a pregnancy termination for foetal abnormalities.
