The End of Abortion in Poland?

On 30th November, 2017, the Legislative Initiative Committee ‘Stop Abortion’ submitted to the Marshal of the Sejm a draft amendment to Poland’s abortion law. The initiative was supported by a record high number of Poles – as many as 830 thousand people signed their names calling for a change in the law! That equates to approximately 1.4 million people in Britain. The Speaker of the Sejm now has to set the date of the first parliamentary reading within 3 months.

The amendment proposed by the Life and Family Foundation contains a slight change in the wording of the Act, but which will enormous consequences in practice. By deleting from the current abortion law the reason of genetic malformation, i.e. a provision permitting the killing of a child because of suspicion of disability or other genetic condition, it will prevent the vast majority of children being killed. Eugenic reasons for abortion account for 95% of all abortions in Poland. When it comes to numbers, the increase is visible from year to year. In 2015, 1,000 out of the 1044 so-called ‘legal’ abortions were due tio perceived birth defects. And in 2016, genetic defect accounted for 1042 out of 1098 so-called ‘legal’ abortions.

It is also a practice of particular cruelty, because abortion due to a genetic defect is performed at an advanced stage of pregnancy (5-6 months). Another monstrous reality in Polish hospitals is live birth abortion, after which children are left to certain death without any medical help, because the aborters are protected by law. In this way, people with disabilities are still murdered in Polish hospitals with impunity and under protection of the so-called law.

Rosary for Life and Faith

Following the very successful public Rosary chain at more than 4,000 locations around the entire borders of Poland back in October, Irish Catholics are organising a rosary chain around the borders of Ireland for 26th November.

In Poland an estimated one million Catholics prayed for the salvation of Poland whilst commemorating the anniversaries of the appearances and warnings to mankind of Our Lady of Fatima, and of victory at the Battle of Lepanto in the 16th century (following which the Feast of the Holy Rosary was established).
