Thousands protested in front of the Poland's parliament on Thursday night against a near-total ban on abortion, while inside the building, members debated on three draft laws. The pro-choice coalition Save Women and the left-wing political party Razem organized the demonstration. A smaller counter-demonstration also occurred at the same place, at the same time. A police cordon separated the two groups.
