The Constitutional Court ruled that the provision adopted in 1993 allowing abortion in the case of a high probability of severe and irreversible impairment of the fetus or incurable life-threatening disease is inconsistent with the Polish Constitution. Women took to the streets en masse to protest against the removal of their rights. Recognizable people, artists express their public dissatisfaction because they fear for the future.
“The judgment of the Constitutional Court is a fresh topic. I don't think I understand exactly what is happening yet. I feel great regret and sadness. Last week I had tears of happiness as I looked at my seven-week-old son. I was glad that he was healthy with us and that everything worked out. Now I look at him and I have tears of terror in my eyes. I am afraid of what country and at what point he was born. I'm worried about what awaits him. I strongly believe that when my son starts to understand the world, something will change in Poland,” actress Monika Mazur, said.
According to the actress, women took to the streets to ensure a safe future, not only for themselves but, above all, for their loved ones. The strikers are concerned that the Constitutional Court's decision will entail other limitations as well: lack of sexual education, limited access to contraception. Monika Mazur hopes that the authorities will see their eyes open and understand that she made a mistake in deciding to limit women's rights.
