Women in Poland protest plans to tighten anti-abortion law
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Women across Poland are protesting in front of bishops' residences after the influential Roman Catholic Church urged the government to ban abortion.
In Warsaw, 400 protesters gathered Sunday before the archbishop's seat with wire clothes hangers, a symbol of illegal abortions. They chanted "Nothing about us without us!" and "Save the women!"
They were reacting to the Episcopate's statement last week that urged Polish lawmakers to totally ban abortion.
