90% Drop in Abortion in Poland to Babies with Disabilities After Pro-Life Legislation
A new report from Poland shows a 90 percent drop in abortions following the introduction of Pro-life legalisation introduced in early 2021 that stopped abortions on unborn babies with disabilities.
On Oct 2020 the justices ruled that the exception violates the constitution because it discriminates against human beings with disabilities. Poland currently protects pre-born babies, except in the cases of rape or incest.
The data shows there were 107 abortions in 2021 in the country, a 90-percent decrease from the 1,076 in 2020.
A Polish Pro-Life activist had this to say.
"If it had not been for the change in the law about 1,000 children would have lost their lives in their mothers’ wombs in Poland, mainly due to suspected Down syndrome" - Magdalena Korzekwa-Kaliszuk, head of the pro-life Proelio Group Foundation.
“This means that the law is working and has allowed specific people to be saved,” she said.
She also added, "This means that the law is working and has allowed specific people to be saved,".
