In several Polish cities, demonstrations under the slogan “Not one more” take place on Sunday. This is a reaction to the death of a 30-year-old woman from Pszczyna, who died of sepsis after doctors had to wait for the fetus to die. The demonstration takes place, among others, in Krakow. “You will never, ever walk alone” – chanted the crowd gathered in the Main Market Square in Krakow.
Sunday is another day of protests under the slogan “Not one more”. On Saturday through the streets of Warsaw and nearly 80 other cities there were demonstrations, the cause of which was the death of a pregnant 30-year-old woman from Pszczyna, who died after doctors had to wait for the death of the fetus. This case was described on October 29 by legal counsel Jolanta Budzowska, representative of the deceased family. She wrote that it was a consequence of last year’s judgment of the Constitutional Tribunal, chaired by Julia Przyłębska, which tightened the abortion law. The prosecutor’s office deals with the case.
The Poviat Hospital in Pszczyna decided to suspend the performance of the contracts of two doctors who were on duty during the stay of a 30-year-old pregnant Mrs. Izabela.
“Not one more” – protest in Krakow
“You will never, ever walk alone” – this is one of the slogans raised during the Sunday manifestation at the Main Square in Krakow. The demonstrators intend to walk along Franciszkańska Street, where the Krakow Curia is located. The protest is to end in front of the headquarters of Law and Justice at Retoryka Street.
The demonstration also takes place in front of the District Court in Zielona Góra. As a symbol of remembrance of the deceased, the participants lit candles and raised their mobile phones turned on. “We fear that we will live in a country where mainly men will make decisions about women’s rights,” said one of the women who participated in the demonstration.
Demonstrations are also held in Pabianice and Jelenia Góra.
