– We are tired of situations where Polish women die unnecessarily in hospital wards, when they could have been saved and later become pregnant again. We want normality in this country, we want Polish women to be safe, be able to give birth to children and not feel threatened – said the protesting man.

We cannot be indifferent, and if we speak loudly about the fact that we do not agree to violence, torture, ill-treatment and lack of medical care, perhaps it will finally be heard and our rights will be respected, she said.

– These victims are victims of the system, indoctrination and politicization of the health service. Yes, this law is criminal. It’s violence. It’s an oppressive system that doesn’t care about us.”
