The Polish Constitutional Court decided on Thursday that abortion is also not allowed on the basis of serious abnormalities in the unborn child. As a result, abortion is almost completely banned in the predominantly Roman Catholic country.

The court ruled that abortion on the grounds of serious deviations is contrary to the constitution that guarantees the protection of everyone’s life. 98 percent of all abortions in the country are performed for this reason.

Exceptions are still made if the birth would endanger the health of the mother or if the unborn child is the product of incest or rape.

More than a hundred conservative and right-wing nationalist parliamentarians brought the case to the constitutional court a year ago. The independence of this court has been questioned by critics because the government is said to have a great influence on it.

In 2016 unrest arose in Poland after the government wanted to end abortion altogether. Some 20,000 women gathered in Warsaw and protests took place in other cities as well, after which the government decided to withdraw the proposal.

In recent months, there has also been demonstration against further limitation of abortion, but this has been made more difficult by the corona measures, reports BBC. Dunja Mijatović, Commissioner of Human Rights of the Council of Europe calls the court’s judgment a “violation of human rights”.
