WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Thousands of people protested in Warsaw and other cities across Poland on Friday against the conservative government’s latest attempt to restrict abortion.
Many also voiced broad anger at the ruling Law and Justice party, which has been accused by domestic critics and international bodies of eroding democracy and civic freedoms.
“This is against attempts at taking away our right to decide what we want,” said Paulina Rudnik, a 44-year-old lawyer at the Warsaw protest.
In the crowds around her, people held banners reading “Free choice” and “A woman is a human being” and chanted slogans “Yes to choice! No to horror!”
