The number of legal abortions taking place in Poland decreased by 90% in 2021, following a court ruling that banned abortion in the case of a fetal medical diagnosis such as Down syndrome.
According to a report by the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita, data from the Ministry of Health shows that the number of legal abortions in the country decreased from 1,076 in 2020 to 107 in 2021 following changes to the country’s abortion law.
The court ruling left in place exceptions in cases of rape and incest and when the life and health of the mother are at risk.
Saint Pope John Paul II, descendant of Poland, pray for us.
March 2019 – Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released a statement following the introduction of the Save the Internet Act of 2019:
“Today Congressional Democrats joined to demonstrate our united support for a free, open internet and the restoration of strong net neutrality principles, which were rolled back by President Trump’s FCC in 2017. Last year’s effort to restore net neutrality had bipartisan support in the Senate, and I hope my colleagues will continue working to pass legislation permanently enshrining strong net neutrality protections in our code of law. With more of our lives happening online—from education to entertainment, commerce to health services—we need to make sure that all Americans have access to a free and open internet.”
