Today I just made sure that the police are hunting me for an abortion. I never said my mood was about abortion. I made it over a week before calling the doctor – said Joanna in an interview with “Gazeta Wyborcza”, commenting on Thursday’s conference of the chief of police in her case.
In recent days, there has been a discussion about the case of Joanna, who decided to take an abortion pill because the pregnancy was supposed to threaten her health. She felt bad both physically and mentally. She informed her doctor about it. In the Krakow hospital, she was interrogated and searched by the police. The officers took her laptop and phone. The case was presented by “Fakty” TVN.

The court, examining the complaint about taking the phone and ordering its return, reminded the policemen that Ms. Joanna was not a suspect, nor was she even considered to be charged.
On Thursday, the chief of the police, Jarosław Szymczyk, presented recordings at a press conference, which recorded an emergency call by Joanna’s doctor and the receipt of a report in this case by the police. When asked by TVN24 about the actions taken by the police in the hospital, Szymczyk said that “this is a normal procedure for people who we suspect want to take their own lives.”
“I just made sure the police had a hunt for me”
Mrs. Joanna referred to the content presented at the conference in an interview with “Gazeta Wyborcza”. “Today I just made sure that the police were hunting me for an abortion. I never said my mood was about abortion. I did it more than a week before calling the doctor – said the woman.
Joanna also commented on one of the recordings presented at the press conference, which we remind you below.
– I was lied to. The recording of the doctor’s call confirms that the doctor tells me that she is talking to the ambulance, meanwhile she was talking to the police. She didn’t tell me that. I thought that a doctor would come to me to help me, because that’s what the doctor said – said Joanna in an interview with “Wyborcza”.
– I am also outraged and I do not agree that information is given publicly that I suffer from some disorder. Now the whole of Poland will be telling each other, guessing, diagnosing me on their own and analyzing what I suffer from. What does it matter? Where is patient protection? the woman added.
Mrs. Joanna also confirmed to “Wyborcza” that “the word suicide was mentioned in the conversation with the doctor.” “But in the context of the fact that I’m not going to do anything to myself, but I feel bad,” she said.
