Complete ban on abortion in Poland: #Why do we still have to protest this shit?
Poland already has one of the most restrictive abortion laws in Europe. MPs are considering tightening it even further.
Yesterday Polish MPs began debating two competing bills on the legality of abortion. Catholic lobbyists want to effectively ban abortion under a penalty of prison, while the Save the Women initiative proposed a slight liberalisation of the current abortion law. A viral campaign under the hashtag #CzarnyProtest (BlackProtest) #WhyDoIStillHaveToProtestThisShit organized by Partia Razem (Together Party) swept through the Polish internet, with people expressing solidarity with Polish women by wearing black. A protest took place in front of the Parliament yesterday. Experts predict that the proposed bill will not have a majority in Parliament.
