Polish President Says Women Should Be Able To Terminate Some Pregnancies As Protests Over Court Ruling Continue

AP: Polish president takes step back on abortion amid protests
“Polish President Andrzej Duda partially broke ranks with the country’s conservative leadership Thursday and said he thinks women should have the right to abortion when they are carrying fetuses with fatal birth defects. … The president said he still favors outlawing abortion in cases of fetuses with non-lethal congenital defects…” (10/29).

Additional coverage of the protests over Poland’s abortion laws is available from Globe and Mail and New York Times.
