Poland May Appeal European Human Rights Court Ruling On Abortion
Via the Post Chronicle:
Poland could appeal verdicts pronounced by Europe's rights court declaring Warsaw authorities violated abortion and gay rights.
Marek Jurek, of the Polish Right group, suggested Poland should appeal the two rulings, which he said violated rights guaranteed by Polish law, Radio Polonia reported Thursday. Jurek said the Polish government should defend the right to life in the case of abortion....
In March, the court awarded compensation to a Polish woman whose eyesight was severely damaged during childbirth after the Polish government denied her permission to have an abortion. See this related post: Europe's Human Rights Court Orders Poland to Compensate Woman Denied an Abortion
