The Polish government has postponed the entry into force of a court decision banning almost all types of abortion. This happened after the country was swept by the largest wave of protests in the past 30 years, according to The Guardian. The court ruled that termination of pregnancy is illegal even in cases where the fetus has been diagnosed with a serious and irreversible birth defect. Now this is practically the only legal reason for abortion surgery in Poland. The court's decision has not yet been published, although it should have come into force on Monday. The initiators of the introduction of a strict ban were the deputies of the "Law and Justice" party. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has called for talks with protesters and opposition MPs, while Law and Justice-backed President Andrzej Duda has proposed allowing abortions for life-threatening fetal defects other than Down's syndrome, for example. On Friday evening, more than 100,000 people gathered in a rally in the streets of Warsaw with slogans in support of the election and against the Law and Justice Party.
