Agnieszka T is the second woman known to have died as a result of a restriction of Poland’s abortion law. #AniJednaWiecej
Agnieszka T died on Tuesday. Thursday marks a year since #Poland banned access to abortion in almost all circumstances, which @hrw & rights groups say has had a devastating impact on the lives of women and all those in need of abortion care hrw.org/news/2022/01/2… #AniJednaWiecej

#Tomorrow the Polish Parliament will debate the ‘Stop Abortion’ bill that would establish a TOTAL BAN on abortion in #Poland and criminalize individuals that receive care. #StrajkKobiet
Poland has long had one of the most restrictive abortion laws in Europe. It is one of only two EU member states that has not legalized abortion on request or broad grounds.
As attacks on #reproductiverights have intensified in the country, so too have attacks against civil society organizations and women human rights defenders.

Protests in Warsaw after the death of a woman who was refused an abortion under Poland’s abortion ban
h/t @Heresy_Corner @J_Jaraczewski
Almost exactly a year ago: protests in #Warsaw against near-total abortion ban. They were largest protests in #Poland since fall of Communism in 1989. And their core message was “Fuck off” to priests and the far-right govt #StrajkKobiet #AborcjaBezGranic

When the fascist fucks in your country use a pandemic to tighten their grip on your body with a near total ban on abortion, the path to freedom must be paved with profanity. Politeness is capitulation.

And Polish feminists know it. feministgiant.com/p/fuck-is-a-fe…

1/. A year ago, Poland introduced a near-total ban on abortion.

@amnesty warned women & girls would pay high price.

This weekend, unconfirmed reports suggest a woman died in circumstances where her death might have been prevented had she had access to abortion. #AniJednejWięcej Image
2/. This reported death comes just weeks after @amnesty & other organisations including @hrw @AbortionSupport @CIVICUSMonitor @ReproRights @federapl @strajkkobiet warned that the abortion ban was “causing incalculable harm to women & girls in #Poland.”

3/. The situation faced by women in Poland is a stark illustration of the impact an abortion ban can have on the day that the US Supreme Court is set to take a closer look at the Texas abortion ban law

The impact of the vote will be felt far beyond Texas

1/. Polls have just closed in San Marino where people have been voting in a referendum on decriminalising abortion

#SanMarion along with Malta, Andorra & the Vatican, it is one of the last places in Europe where a total ban on abortion is still in force. theguardian.com/world/2021/sep…
2/. #BREAKING: Residents in #SanMarino - a majority Catholic state surrounded by Italy - have voted overwhelmingly to legalize abortion, overturning a 150-year-old law that had criminalized it

This good news comes two days before int’l #safeabortionday.
apnews.com/article/aborti…
3/. #SanMarino joins more than 50 countries that have improved access to abortion in the past 25 years

It was decriminalised in South Korea (2021), Argentina (2020), Ireland (2019)

But other places - such as Poland & Texas - are swimming against the tide

For #IWD2021 we want to draw attention to what is currently happening in Poland. Here is a thread to explain the situation. #StrajkKobiet
Last October, a ruling by the Polish Constitutional Tribunal in October declared that a 1993 law allowing abortions in the case of severe foetal abnormalities was unconstitutional.
Even before this ruling, Poland's abortion restrictions were among the strictest in the EU –– only slightly less restrictive than countries with total bans, like Malta and San Marino.

In condemning the "illegal ruling" by Poland's constitutional court to ban #abortion, @MEugeniaRPalop says such criminalisation is "a violation of #WomensRights."

"It is part of an international, far-right conservative objective: to destroy gender equality."

#StrajkKobiet
"Women have the right to decide over their own bodies - a #HumanRight that cannot be violated," says @nvillumsen.

"In spite of mass street protests, by pushing through the #abortion ban with the help of illegitimate judges, the Polish government has violated EU #RuleOfLaw."
Describing Poland's #abortionban as "illegal & regressive", @deppcppeguengl's Sandra Pereira says it "goes against the dignity of women & their reproductive health rights."

"This ban also hits the most disadvantaged women in our society the hardest."

Because of massive protests organized by Women’s Strike - the largest protests in #Polamd since the fall of communism - the new restrictions on abortion were delayed theguardian.com/world/2020/nov… #StrajkKobiet
Enforcers of patriarchal fuckery are a fascist trinity comprised of far-right groups, the police, and the church. The first two worked in unison to block and remove women’s rights protestors who tried to enter churches, the third played the civility card.
Far-right groups have attacked protesters, and government figures stoke the tensions. Ruling far-right party leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski Jarosław Kaczyński, told people they should “defend churches” from the protesters after some were defaced. #StrajkKobiet

Daily protests organized by Women’s Strike, chant “fuck off,” hold massive banners telling right-wing populist Law & Justice (PiS) govt to “Get the fuck out” & “PiS off,” & carry rainbow pride flag in recognition of dovetailing of feminist & LGBTQ resistance to fascist fuckery.

POLAND HAS JUST COMPLETELY BANNED ABORTIONS IF A FETUS HAS ANY CONGENITAL DEFECTS AND THE GOVERNMENT IS HIDING BEHIND THE CONSTITUTION. SPREAD THE WORD, RAISE AWARENESS. POLISH WOMEN ARE BEING STRIPPED AWAY FROM THEIR BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE WORLD DOESN’T CARE
in case you are a person living in poland and you wish to have an abortion please do not hesitate to call this number or reach out to stonewall poland, they can and will help you! stay strong and keep fighting
ITS NO COINCIDENCE THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAS DECIDED TO CHANGE THE LAWS IN POLAND RIGHT NOW. THE LAST TIME THEY TRIED TO STRIP AWAY OUR RIGHTS THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WENT TO PROTEST ON THE STREETS BUT ARE NOW UNABLE TO BECAUSE OF THE PANDEMIC. THIS IS CRUEL AND MANIPULATIVE!

BRAVO all who protested, on the streets near #Polish parliament or #ProtestAtHome: it worked!

Lockdown protests force "freeze" on two bills seeking to further restrict abortion and to ban sex ed. h/t @AnnaMBlus

“While it is shameful that parliamentarians didn’t reject these two retrogressive proposals unequivocally, today’s vote is a testament to the power of protest, even and especially, during the #COVID19 pandemic”

Today in #Poland the parliament will vote on two new laws - one to restrict #abortion, the other to ban #SexEducation.

They know that massive women’s protests vs previous attempts are not possible. #ProtestAtHome for women's right to choose.

Here’s how you can join #Poland #ProtestAtHome via @AnnaMBlus
➡️Make a banner with a #solidarity message☂️🏳️‍🌈
➡️If you can, change your virtual background (e.g. in Zoom) - you will be outside the Polish Parliament #Sejm).
➡️If you can't, post a selfie with your message.
The banner and hashtag #NieSkladamyParasolek means 'we are not putting our umbrellas down".

The umbrellas were used during the Black Protest a few years ago and there are rainbows because the sex ed ban is targetting #LGBTI communities mainly. ☂️🏳️‍🌈
