That would be disgraceful. Would that even be allowed for EU member states?
Ridiculous and moronic. But of course, it would have religious backing.
Weird how people say banning abortion is medieval. I always thought that murder of children was a bit outdated and a thing of the past but apparently not.
Anyway, good news to hear.
This is why I disagree with allowing religion to affect lawmaking. It impacts people that don't follow those beliefs which is imposing a religion on someone. It means that people might travel out of the country to get an abortion instead. It shouldn't be a law, people should have the choice to determine what happens to their body.
Just a note, there's a possibility that this ban may not only affect medical abortions, but also miscarriages too. This could mean that a woman who has miscarried may have to go through a legal battle to ensure her baby died naturally, rather than of her own accord. So aswell as going through the loss of her unborn baby, the mother may have to deal with that too.
All these people in Poland are doing is attempting to protect unborn children, but fail to factor in care for the mother, or any women (considering morning-after pills are banned, even in the case of rape/incest). I'd love to know whether any woman in the Polish government has supported this, as she's endangering her own life just as much as anyone elses.
this is utterly abhorrent for any country, western or otherwise, to even consider.
see how I'm not referring to race? or am I going to be accused of xenophobia because this is poland?
either way, take notice - the criticism of a state and the criticism of a religion are not attacks on races or individuals.
Well this is what happens when you start allowing outdated religious institutions to have an influence over government.
Completely despicable and I hope it does not happen.
I don't see the harm in religion telling people what to do/not to do with their bodies though.
I don't live in Poland or know anything about Poland so maybe Poland doesn't want abortions to be abused?
Maybe its all about applying restrictions on abortions. I don't see anything wrong with banning abortion. Its a conversational issue that involves two lives. The biologic mother could also place her child on adoption, so its not a bleak aftermath.
By the way, even the non believers that an all knowing God can disagree with abortion. Do people really need to have a faith of some kind to find abortion repulsive? Believe or not, even some atheists are prolife.
