Poland restricts (but fails to prohibit) use of “morning-after” abortion pill

wuetende-proteste-in-polenPoland’s President Andrzej Duda has signed into law a bill that restricts the use of the (until now freely available) so-called “morning-after” pill by subjecting it to medical prescription.

Poland: The winner takes it all?

Just a short while ago we published a post in which we predicted how Western liberal media were going to launch a campaign against the news everyone can see, this prediction is meanwhile coming true.

Not that the new Polish government is completely innocent in this – it certainly could have acted more cleverly. But to portray Poland as Europe’s new rogue state, or as a country on the brink to dictatorship, is completely beside the point – in particular when one considers how the preceding government, lead by the liberal “Civic Platform” has its own share of responsibility for the current crisis.

Poland: President vetoes controversial gender re-definition bill

Polish-president-candidate-Andrzej-DudaFollowing protests from wide parts of the population, Polish President Andrzej Duda has put in his presidential veto against the controversial “Gender Accordance Act”, a bill that would have allowed to dissociate a person’s legal sex from biological reality, turning “gender” into a question of choice and self-definition.

This prevents Poland from adopting an inherently untruthful law, and from succumbing to the pressure of the international Homo-Lobby and the government of certain countries that, having themselves made the aberrant decision of re-defining a person’s sex in a way that contradicts reality, are now keen to ensure that they will not remain the only ones to indulge in such grotesque self-delusion.

Poland to legalize in-vitro fertilization?

ivfPoland’s parliament has passed a bill that, if adopted, would set out the conditions for offering in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. This is a key issue on which the government led by Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz wants to deliver in order to attract liberal voters before elections in October.

IVF treatment has been available in Poland for 25 years, but in a legal grey zone. So far the country has not passed any legislation regulating it, remaining the only European Union member not to have done so. Continue reading “Poland to legalize in-vitro fertilization?”

MEP Andrzej Duda wins presidential election in Poland

Polish-president-candidate-Andrzej-DudaAccording to exit polls released just a few minutes ago, MEP Andrzej Duda has won the presidential election in Poland against sitting President Bronisław Komorowski with 53% against 47% of the votes. This is good news for pro-lifers because Mr. Duda  both as an MEP and as a presidential candidate has a proven record of consistently defending the right to life as well as the natural meaning of marriage. During the electoral campaign he criticized Poland’s ratification of the controversial CoE Istanbul Convention, which reputedly is a Trojan horse to infiltrate gender ideology into the domestic laws of Member States. He also voiced opposition against the legalization of procreation in vitro.

AGENDA EUROPE expresses its heartfelt gratitude to the new President of Poland for his clear stance on important ethical issues.
