Late August or in September the Polish parliament will vote on a new bill liberalizing the current restrictive abortion law and expanding access to contraception and comprehensive sexuality education. Poland has one of the most restrictive abortion laws in Europe, the law which is a fiction - it is estimated that illegal procedures generate up to 95 million USD a year. We need your support to convince Members of Parliament to support this draft so that Polish women can again enjoy the full spectrum of their reproductive and sexual rights.

Please sign this petition here individually or as an organization/network and help us promote this important cause in your respective networks.
