Poland bans abortion

“The turnout for the strike has been huge, with at least sixty percent of women not showing up to work in major cities.
Clad in black from head-to-toe, and waving black flags, thousands of women poured into streets of Warsaw Gdańsk, and across Poland Monday for a second consecutive day to protest a new law that would effectively restore a ban on abortion in the Catholic nation.
Many women were supported by husbands, boyfriends and sons as they boycotted their jobs and classes. The color black represented mourning for their lost reproductive rights, and for the women who will surely die from back-room and illegal abortions if the Polish Parliament passes the legislation as it now stands.”
