Poland government postponing implementation of controversial HC ruling that approves ban on all abortions

After two weeks of protests where thousands of protesters have been marching in the streets of the capital Warsaw and other cities across Poland to stand against the ruling right-wing Law and Justice party (PiS) and the constitutional tribunal’s ruling that last month approved a ban on almost all abortions in the country, Poland’s government is postponing the publication and implementation of the controversial high court ruling.

The protests have rocked the country since the country’s Constitutional Tribunal on October 22, announced its decision to halt pregnancy terminations for foetal abnormalities, indirectly but effectively banning all abortions in the country. On October 30, the country witnessed about 100,000 people protesting in the capital city Warsaw, which can be seen as the biggest anti-government protest to take place in Poland under the ruling conservative party.
