Polish state must provide legal abortions, European Court rules

6 November 2012

The ECHR is ordering Poland to ensure provision for legal abortion

The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that the Polish government must ensure that women can access abortion if they qualify for an abortion under Polish law.

The ruling follows a case in which a 14-year old girl, whom it was alleged was raped, was obstructed allegedly in accessing an abortion.

Anthony Ozimic, SPUC's communications manager,  said that the court-case was brought by wealthy, US-based abortion lobbyists as part of an international campaign to litigate away existing abortion restrictions in countries like Poland that do not have an absolute ban on abortion. [, 5 November]
