WARSAW, POLAND – OCTOBER 28: Police stands between members of far right associations standing on the stairs of the Holy Cross Church and pro-choice protesters during the National strike for the seventh day of protests against the Constitutional Court ruling on tightening the abortion law on October 28, 2020 in Warsaw, Poland. The National Strike announced several days ago by the Women’s strike encourages people not to go to work and several cities will hold protests all day long. Yesterday, one of the heads of the Women’s National Strike, Marta Lempart presented a list of demands, including the resignation of the right wing conservative government. Moments after, the leader of Law and Justice Party, called on the creation of militias to protect the country’s churches. On October 22nd, the country’s Constitutional Tribunal ruled in favour of a ban on abortions in cases of fetal defects, tightening Poland’s restrictive abortion laws even further. The decision means that abortions will only be permitted in cases of rape, incest or when the mother’s health is at risk. (Photo by Omar Marques/Getty Images)
