The judgment of the Constitutional Tribunal, which in practice makes abortion illegal, is an example of disgusting cowardice and hypocrisy of people guarding the patriarchal, conservative system of values. People who have decided today about the life and death of women hide behind their majesty, their togas, their god, law and conscience. ---- Department: Country ---- Keywords abortion women's rights ---- However, they do not really have a conscience. In fact, they condemn women and their relatives to the continuation of pregnancy, which will surely end with the death of the child or, if it survives, it will be unable to live independently. ---- While most people do not have access to psychological or psychiatric care (giving birth to a child with severe genetic defects and watching it pass away will be a great trauma for many); when there is no social support, when there are no nursing homes, nurseries, special schools; when women give birth in pain, without painkillers or the possibility of caesarean section; when they are unemployed, they work at the lowest national level and struggle with poverty; when they have nowhere to live; when they do not receive assistance while being victims of mental or physical abuse by their partners, then to deprive them of their elementary right to decide whether to continue their pregnancy in the event of a fetal defect is simply torture.

At the same time, the ruling restricts access to prenatal tests, during which fetal defects can be diagnosed and treated in the event of early detection. He ties the hands of doctors and all abortion helpers, exposing them to three years in prison. Of course, it most affects those women who cannot afford to go abroad, who do not have access to private healthcare, and who do not know who to turn to for help.

This hypocrisy is so great that the people who passed the sentence probably know someone who terminated the pregnancy themselves - in the broadly understood conservative and Catholic environment there are many such cases: priests, businessmen or politicians forcing abortion, who want to hide an embarrassing secret or just women who don't want to be pregnant and secretly terminate it, without even telling their hell-believing partners.

As a result, they all want to hell for us, but they keep forgetting about our solidarity. About the fact that we are together, that we help each other. That they cannot keep an eye on all of us, they cannot forbid us to help each other, visit each other, send each other letters, give gifts and arrange trips.

Let's organize ourselves. On different ways. At work, at school, at university, among friends. Let us help ourselves and talk about abortion and the fact that we have the right to decide and who helps to enforce this law.
We are here with you and for you.
And nothing will change it.
