Hundreds of people marched in Warsaw on Thursday evening, October 22, to denounce a recent court ruling that will limit abortion services in the country. Protesters reportedly gathered at the Constitutional Tribunal before marching to the Law and Justice (PiS) party headquarters to denounce the court ruling, which stated that abortion of fetuses with congenital defects is unconstitutional.
Further associated rallies and counter-protests regarding the court ruling should be anticipated in major cities in the medium term.
Those in Poland are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate a heightened security presence, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
