Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators flooded cities across Poland for at least 10 consecutive days after the nation’s Constitutional Tribunal ruled on Oct. 22 that the law protects babies with abnormalities from abortion. Karolina Pawłowska, director of the pro-life Ordo Iuris International Law Center, watched as 3,000-4,000 pro-abortion protesters gathered outside her office building in historic Warsaw. The group of mostly women wearing dark clothing, masks, and the protest’s red lightning bolt symbol yelled vulgar words, and some said the pro-life office should be burned.
