PiS chairman Jarosław Kaczyński said in a statement on the judgment of the Constitutional Tribunal regarding abortion law that the verdict had become a pretext for violent speeches.
“Speeches that take place in a special situation. We have a severe stage of the Covid-19 epidemic, we have a state in which all kinds of gatherings of more than five people are prohibited, we have a state in which these demonstrations will cost many people's lives. The state has the right, but also the obligation to oppose such events,” Jarosław Kaczyński said.
He added that the protesters were committing crimes. As he said, there are attacks on the churches.
"This is a completely new event in the history of Poland. A fatal event, because the Church can be assessed differently, you can be a believer or not, but for sure the moral deposit held by the Church is the only moral system that is commonly known in Poland. Its rejection is nihilism, we see this nihilism in these demonstrations and attacks on the Church, but also in the way of expressing those who demonstrate incredible vulgarity,” he said.
We must defend Polish churches at all costs, he said. “I call on all members of Law and Justice and all who support us to take part in the defense of the Church, in defense of what is under attack today,” he said.
The opposition and the media criticizing Kaczyński unanimously described the speech of the PiS spokeswoman as a call for a civil war.
