People here don’t want anything for free, they don’t want scraps from the government. Here, people want freedom of action – said the head of PO Donald Tusk to the inhabitants of Sosnowiec. – We all have this one time given by God and no one has the right to waste this time – he pointed out. In the Q&A session, the PO leader was asked, among other things, about his group’s approach to abortion. – The state’s role is to create the best possible, optimal conditions for the future mother, so that abortion is only the result of absolute necessity – he replied.
Head of the Civic Platform Donald Tusk met with the inhabitants of Sosnowiec on Saturday. – It is here, in Sosnowiec, in Zagłębie Dąbrowskie, that words about hard work take on a special meaning. Here people have never been afraid of hard work. Here people don’t want anything for free, here people don’t want scraps from the government. Here, people want freedom of action, they are ready to work hard to earn money for themselves and their families, and they know how to do it, they do it well, if no one bothers them too much, he said to the gathered.
– This Silesian-Dąbrowa lesson, these sometimes bitter words coming from Sosnowiec, or from Racibórz, from Wodzisław, where I talked to people who are not afraid of work, let them reach those who think that good power is the one that takes everything, some he will steal and give back some, telling people that it is a gift from them – he added.
As he assessed, “here these words really have their power.” – Finally, let people act, breathe, live in freedom as they want, so that they can speak the words they want, in the language they want, and that they don’t have to stand up for their rights every day, be it the rights to regional identity, women’s rights, teachers and students, or the right to free enterprise, he urged.
– You have a special right here to speak loudly about it, to demand it loudly. I am here to help you as much as I can. Not only in screaming and demanding these rights, but in implementing what is most important to you, he assured. – We all have one life. We all have this one God-given time and no one has the right to waste this time.
Tusk: A woman must decide about her health, life and safety
In the boss’s question session AFTER the listener asked about his attitude to the right to abortion. “There is no room for political language here. This requires great empathy and understanding that when we talk about the right to legal abortion, we are not talking about promoting abortion, he replied.
He emphasized that the mother must have the decisive voice here. – A woman must decide about her health, life and safety – said Tusk. At the same time, he stated that the abortion compromise violated by the decision of the Constitutional Tribunal “had only flaws”. – He didn’t please anyone. Neither those who were in favor of legal abortion, nor those who were in favor of banning abortion. But it guaranteed social peace. It was destroyed by Mrs. Kaja Godek, by Mrs. Przyłębska from the pseudo-tribunal, by Mr. Kaczyński – he noted.
– The moment came that if they could not respect the compromise, which was also difficult from the point of view of women, today it must be clearly stated, and how I will try and make decisions, if it is given to me, so that Polish women have the right to safe and legal abortion up to 12 weeks, as is the case in the overwhelming majority of European countries, he declared.
Tusk assured that “he will do everything so that women in Poland do not have to make such a decision.” He added that he would do everything for “motherhood to be associated with love, for women in Poland to want to give birth, to be sure that the state is to help the future mother, that the state is not to send a prosecutor to a pregnant woman , with all due respect, a priest, a policeman and an activist PiSto take care of this pregnancy.
– The state’s role is to create the best possible, optimal conditions for the future mother, so that abortion is only the result of absolute necessity – he continued. “But if it happens, if a woman decides to do so, she has the right to a legal and safe abortion,” he added.
