WARSAW — Some 2,000 women with colorful banners walked through Poland’s capital city Sunday for an annual Women’s Day march in defense of women’s rights, including the unrestricted right to abortion.
The 19th Warsaw ‘‘Manifa’’ march focused on Poland’s strict antiabortion law.
It allows pregnancies to be terminated for just three reasons: a woman’s life or health is threatened, the fetus is incurably sick or irreversibly damaged, or a pregnancy results from a criminal act.
Poland’s right-wing ruling party wants to ban the possibility of a woman having an abortion because of a sick fetus.
After that was proposed last month, thousands of protesters rallied in at least 50 Polish cities.
Only two other European states, Malta and Vatican City, have such strict laws on abortions.
