S&D MEPs at Pro-choice Protest in Warsaw

S&D MEPs took part in a protest alongside thousands of Polish men and women in Warsaw today over proposals to further restrict access to abortion. S&D spokesperson for gender equality, Maria Arena, addressed the crowd and explained what the European Union is doing to support Polish women. The new proposals being discussed in the Polish Parliament, the site of the protest, would widen the ban on abortion to include cases where a woman has been the victim of rape or incest.
