Poland to imprison women who have an abortion after incest or rape
The proposal for a new abortion law in Poland arouses reactions worldwide. The country has already one of the world's strictest abortion laws. The changes arouse shock and disbelief:

It proposed a total ban on all abortions - whether the mother's health is at stake or the fetus is damaged.

If someone would still have an abortion, they will risk a prison sentence of up to five years. This also applies regardless of whether a woman has become pregnant as a result of incest or rape.

On Monday, protesters took to the streets to protest and police had difficulty to calm the masses.

"The government should stay away from our uterus'' We are not incubators'' My body, my choice" says posters the demonstrators carried.

Some also go on strike. They do not show up for work or studies in protest against the proposal. The powerful reaction has surprised many in a country where the feminist movement has not been particularly strong.

The proposal is supported by many in the Catholic Church, however, that played a crucial role when the ruling party came to power last year. They also collected 450,000 signatures supporting the controversial bill.
