Poland Rules Abortion Due to Foetal Defects Unconstitutional

October 23, 2020

(The Guardian) – Poland’s constitutional tribunal has ruled that abortion due to foetal defects is unconstitutional, rejecting the most common of the few legal grounds for pregnancy termination in the predominantly Catholic country. The chief justice, Julia Przy??bska, said in a ruling that existing legislation – one of Europe’s most restrictive – that allows for the abortion of malformed foetuses was “incompatible” with the constitution.
