Right now, pro-lifers in Poland are on the verge of winning a major victory for the global pro-life movement!

Polish laws are already relatively pro-life, but the new Polish Government now have enough votes in Parliament to legally ensure that both women and babies are comprehensively protected from abortion!

So, this is an absolutely critical moment for the pro-life movement in Poland, as the country now has a unique opportunity to remove the abortion regime which has been in place, in part, since the days when Poland was behind the Iron Curtain.

Since the election in October of last year, the new Government have not yet moved to change the current regime. But, two important events have intervened: first, the Catholic Bishops of Poland courageously came out strongly for Life on Sunday, 3 April, with a message being read from all the pulpits in Poland, calling for the comprehensive protection of human life, from conception to natural death; and, second, the news that a baby, who survived an attempted abortion in a Polish hospital, and who was left to die without being given any medical help, was reported on. This tragedy has caused widespread disgust and outrage among the general public in Poland.

According to news stories, the baby was aborted, and then left to die, because of Downs Syndrome.

Now sensing that this is the appropriate time, Polish pro-lifers are, therefore, now collecting signatures in a Citizens' Legislative Initiative, and calling the Government to support legislation which would remove disability (in all its forms), as well as rape and incest, as grounds for an abortion.

US pro-lifers, and pro-lifers everywhere, should support this petition which both encourages the Polish pro-life community, and which also asks the Polish Ministers for Health and Justice to support the removal of disability, and rape and incest, as legal reasons allowing one to avail of abortion.

At the same time, we will also ask that both Ministers support accompanying legislation which would increase the services (including, perinatal care and counselling), as well as financial assistance, to those mothers receiving poor foetal diagnosis, and those mothers conceiving as a result of sexual assault.

Please sign this important petition, which both encourages Poland's citizens and pro-life community, as well as asks for courageous and principled action on the part of Poland's politicians.

If Poland can turn the corner on this issue, it would be a great victory for Life around the world.

Thank you!

We support Poland's pro-life efforts to comprehensively protect mothers and babies from abortion

For the Kind Attention Of: All Polish Citizens, the Polish Pro-Life Movement, and Poland's Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Mr Zbigniew Ziobro, and Poland's Minister for Health, Dr Konstanty Radziwiłł --

In terms of some fundamental issues having to do with Life, Poland is now at a crossroads.

You can either follow the rest of Europe as it continues down the path towards a "quick-fix culture" and self-annihilation, or you can chart your own course, towards a genuinely more caring, more loving, and more consistently pro-life society, which always seeks to protect both mother and baby, with due regard - in law - for the life of each.

In the next few months, the Polish people, whose will will be expressed through their elected Government, will have a unique opportunity to stand as a sign of contradiction to the nihilistic mentality, now prevailing in much of the West.

As you work to safeguard the right-to-life of every person - born and unborn - by eliminating legal grounds for abortion in the cases of foetal disability and pregnancy as a result of sexual assault, it may seem as though everyone is against you.

But, nothing could be further from the truth.

The reality is that huge percentages of people, in every Western nation, will be standing with you in true solidarity and prayer. 

Yes, we stand with you and support you!

But, the mainstream media will attack you. Of course, we have come to expect this, especially when attempting to do something good.

And, that is why it is the job of Government and Civil Society to lead by example, showing the world that we truly care about families and women in crisis pregnancies, at the same time as defending the inviolability of every human life from the moment of conception.

In short, in seeking to protect and uphold the dignity of every human life, the Government must craft new initiatives designed to eliminate the crisis, in crisis pregnancies, but not the child.

So, while supporting your efforts to comprehensively protect human life, no matter disability or circumstances surrounding conception, we also encourage you to introduce new programs designed to assist families and women involved in crisis pregnancies.

For example, for those families receiving a poor diagnosis for their expected baby, we suggest implementing a program of perinatal care in all maternity wards throughout the country. Perinatal care, meaning "care around the time of birth", is a life-affirming way of dealing with the devastating news that one's child may not live long after birth.

Crucially, perinatal care allows the time, space and dignity for the family and the child to spend what time they do have, with each other in an atmosphere of love and acceptance, in the knowledge that that child's life, no matter how short, is precious and valuable - and, is, really, an end in itself.

And, again, in the case of pregnancy resulting from sexual assault, the Government, and Civil Society, must treat the woman as the victim of a heinous crime, and never, never the other way round. At the same time, society must show concern for the other innocent party to this situation, namely, the unborn child.

Women in this situation must be surrounded by love and caring. They should receive counselling and financial assistance, if necessary. And, if they so wish, they must be facilitated, by law, in the process of adoption.

Of course, neither of these circumstances are easy to face. And, that is why both families and individuals should have the support of the state as well as their fellow citizens, so that they feel that they can manage the crisis in a way which affirms their dignity, as well as vindicates the right to life of the unborn child.

Thank you for standing up for life. Your actions, in Poland, could have the effect of helping the West see a return to a fundamental respect for human life.

We stand with your efforts and will be praying for a good outcome.
