And to think there was a time, back in the sixties, when women from Sweden and Finland traveled by the thousands to Poland to get a safe abortion. ^_ ^
Really? Anyway, things changed after 1989, when the Church supporters got political power...
I'm surprised there isn't some sort of European law on that yet.
Shows how far the EU is from being 'united'.
Oh, I'm not certain there *should* be an EU-mandated law for that. I wouldn't be comfortable with the EU forcing laws on us.
Still, the "ban all abortion" stance is quite awful, especially as our conservatives couple it with "no contraception" and "no sexual education in schools"... It's religious fundamentalism and I fear it will become much more influential than it is, when the Law and Justice people become the government.
These guys' mindset was, I think, best revealed during the debate about in-vitro fertilization, when one of LnJ senators said that the proper way to write the IVF legislation would be to invite the bishops to consult it...
