The Czech Women’s Lobby organized today a protest called ‘For the freedom of choice: Protest in support of Polish women’ in front of the Polish embassy in Prague. The happening was held in reaction to the Polish government’s intention to restrict human rights, in this case women’s rights. The government is planning a complete ban on abortions. ‘Abortions are already illegal in Poland, with the exception of the three following cases: when the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest, when the pregnant woman’s life is endangered or when the foetus is severely damaged. It is one of the strictest abortion laws currently in place in Europe.
