Protests in Poland over near-total abortion ban


In Poland laws on abortion have been amongst the strictest in Europe and last October the rules were tightened further, making abortion legal only in the rare cases of incest, rape and when the mother’s life is in danger.

The move has caused outrage with tens of thousands protesting on the streets of Warsaw.

Women’s rights protesters were back out today, demonstrating to mark International Women’s Day.
