During the plenary session of the European Parliament in Brussels (8-11 February 2021), MEPs debate the de facto abortion ban in Poland. MEPs condemn the highly restrictive law, which effectively bans abortion in Poland, as an attack on fundamental rights, the rule of law and core EU values.They also express their support and solidarity with protesters who took to the streets to denounce these restrictions, and to condemn the disproportionate use of force against the peaceful demonstrators. Statements by Helena DALLI, European Commissioner for Equality, Iratxe GARCÍA PÉREZ (S&D, ES), Karen MELCHIOR (RE, DK), Vladimír BILČÍK (EPP, SK), Terry REINTKE (Greens/EFA, DE) and Nikolaj VILLUMSEN (The Left, DK).
