Must Read

Thousands of people took to the streets yesterday in Warsaw to demonstrate against the “abortion pandemic”. The procession in the capital of Poland had been organized by groups such as the Rosary Crusade for the Motherland, the warriors of Mary, the soldiers of Christ and the National Guard. The procession began after the mass and at its head a cross of several meters was carried along with the relics of Saint Andrew Bobola, a Polish missionary killed during the 17th century Khmelnytsky revolt which led to the creation of a Cossack hetmanate in the present Ukraine.

“The Procession of the Rosary is an unprecedented event, which aims, first of all, to atone for sins against life,” said the main organizer, Paweł Ozdoba. “Today, in Poland and in the world, abortion is promoted and called ‘standard procedure'”, while “in this situation, we Catholics want to pray for the end of this ‘abortion pandemic'”, added the man. president of the Center for Life and Family, Notes from Poland reported. Similar minor processions took place in other cities, including Krakow, Gdansk and Olsztyn.

Abortion has become a very controversial issue in Poland in recent years. In early 2021, the country’s abortion law, already one of the strictest in Europe, was further tightened with the introduction of a near-total ban resulting from a ruling by the Constitutional Court, a body widely considered under the influence of the conservative ruling party. Now it can only be used if the pregnancy results from an illegal act (rape or incest) or if it puts a woman’s health at risk. That decision resulted in the largest protests in Poland’s post-communist history, with hundreds of thousands taking to the streets. Polls show that a large majority of national public opinion opposes the current near-total ban.
