Warsaw, Oct 6: The proposal to ban abortions in Poland appears to have collapsed after the Polish Parliament on Thursday rejected a bill that would have almost completely prohibited abortion in the country. The move came following a mass protest when some 100,000 people, mostly women, protested on Monday against new measures that had passed initial parliamentary debates on September 23. The government said protests against the bill had given ministers “food for thought”, BBC news reported. The “Stop Abortion” campaign petition garnered around 450,000 sigtures, warranting its government-level consideration, and sought to make abortion completely illegal, pelising both women who undertook the procedure and doctors who performed it.
