– On behalf of the Polish Bishops’ Conference, we thank the organizers of the civic legislative initiative “Halt abortion”, volunteers collecting signatures, 830,000 of citizens who have signed up to this draft law and all the parliamentarians who – by voting for life – supported this civic draft law. We trust that soon the legal guarantees to protect the lives of the weakest will be increased by stopping eugenic abortion – to quote from the Communication of the Presidium of the Polish Bishops’ Conference from January 11, 2018.

We publish the entire Communication: 

Communication of the Presidium of the Polish Bishops’ Conference
regarding the proceeding of a civic legislative initiative enhancing
the protection of the right to life

On behalf of the Polish Bishops’ Conference, we thank the organizers of the civic legislative initiative “Halt abortion”, volunteers collecting signatures, 830,000 of citizens who have signed up to this draft law and all the parliamentarians who – by voting for life – supported this civic draft law. We trust that soon the legal guarantees to protect the lives of the weakest will be increased by stopping eugenic abortion.

A few days ago Pope Francis – speaking to diplomats from around the world – said that seventy years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted, fundamental rights are still being violated. “First among all of these – emphasized the Pope – is the right of every human person to life, liberty and personal security. It is not only war or violence that infringes these rights.  In our day, there are more subtle means: I think primarily of innocent children discarded even before they are born, unwanted at times simply because they are ill or malformed, or as a result of the selfishness of adults” (Vatican, January 8, 2018).

In the context of the ongoing work on the aforementioned civic draft law, we are asking for prayer for the protection of the right to life.
