Poles continue to protest over near-total abortion ban

Protesters continue to demonstrate in Poland following last week’s near-total ban on abortions.
A ruling by the country’s constitutional court means abortions may soon be legal only in extreme cases, including rape or incest.
Al Jazeera’s Neave Barker reports.

    Don't let them start abortion, it will lead to a long down ward spiral into communist anti conservatism

    To have men decide how women's bodies are supposed to be treated is civilization undoing itself. Either respect science, or go ask your religious leader/ god to save you from all the illnesses that can be cured today and that will be cured in the future, Covid-19 included.

    So a child is born into total poverty… Government support next to nothing.
    Way to go in producing the next generation of criminals.

    oh so she fights for her daughter's future 😀 nice 😀
    why she doesn't protest against raising salaries and pensions by up to 28%?
    why she doesn't protest against 35 new taxes her daughter will have to pay
    why she doesn't protest against destroying polish economy forcing polish people to move abroad and substituting them with foreigners who obviously will remain silence for privilege of living in better country than they come from

    oh btw. I am pretty sure she is already taking a part of making enormous debt in name of her daughter causing poland to suffer from highest inflation ever seen 🙂

    please don't get mislead by this bs. this protest has been planned by government so they can manipulate nation, they want them to get divided. nobody gives a sh… about abortion whatsoever
    it's typical for polish government to drop for public a topic which will make toxicity among nation to force media to focus only about this, while actual changes to destroy freedom is getting through in silence

    edit: well done aljazeera, you know so much about poland so you claim yourself good enough to make a video about their situation.
    LAW AND JUSTICE (PiS) is right wing party? they are communists blinded by socialism – they have nothing in common with right 🙂 well done journalist!

    I would like to abort any religion that is against the right to choose to give birth. That is a big financial decision that religion needs to stay away from.
