A Polish government minister has said there will be no total ban on abortion following mass protests against the proposal. Science and higher education minister Jaroslaw Gowin said the demonstration by thousands of women had “caused us to think and taught us humility”.
The comments appear to indicate Poland’s conservative leadership will withhold support from the highly unpopular proposal to ban abortions, even in cases of rape, incest or when the mother’s life is at risk. The right-wing government, led by the Law and Justice party, is also under international pressure not to move forward with the idea. – (AP)
