Hvelplund said Polish women are already traveling to other countries, such as Germany and Austria, to have abortions.
Parliament’s Parliament intends to bring the proposal before the Minister of Health, Magnus Huenicke.

When the country’s new changes begin, abortion is only allowed if the pregnancy is the result of a rape or incest, or if it poses a danger to the mother’s life or health.
During Andrzej Duda’s time as president, the Polish government has taken many steps to limit abortion in the country.
