A Call for Permanent Ban on Abortion by Polish Bishops

In order to mark her nation’s anniversary of Christian conversion since AD 966, the Polish Bishops press for a 100% and permanent ban on abortion in Poland.

“In this jubilee year of Poland’s baptism, we urge all people of goodwill, believers and nonbelievers, to take action to ensure full legal protection of unborn lives," the bishops’ conference said in asking members of parliament to take the legislative initiative.

“Each person’s life is protected by the Fifth Commandment, do not kill. So the attitude of Catholics is clear and unchanging," the bishops’ conference said in a March 30 statement.

The statement, which was to be read yesterday in Polish churches, were to explain that Poland’s 1993 law, which restricts abortions to cases of rape, incest, severe fetal damage or threats to a woman’s life, could no longer be considered but should be replaced by a total ban.

It urges politicians to support the proposed ban, while setting up “programmes to ensure concrete help for parents of sick and handicapped children and those conceived through rape."

Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo told Polish Radio on March 31 that the statement “has clearly pointed us in the right direction … Each of us must now decide according to conscience. But it will certainly be bad if such a sensitive, important issue becomes the object of a political struggle."

Polish Church leaders have previously threatened to deny sacraments to politicians supporting liberalisation of the 1993 law, which has cut annual legal abortions to around 200 nationwide. Last September, the Polish parliament rejected a Church-backed civil initiative to introduce a complete ban on abortion.

However, Polish newspapers predicted a new draft law, introduced on March 14, could now be enacted in the 460-seat Sejm lower house, where the pro-church Law and Justice Party has held a majority since winning October elections. The proposal would outlaw abortions except to save a mother’s life.

Speaking at a March 30 Sejm pro-life conference, Archbishop Henryk Hoser of Warsaw, who heads the Polish Church’s bioethics commission, said “every human life, regardless of usefulness and serviceability" should be legally protected, adding that a growing disregard for life had “degraded medicine and social life."

Celebrations are currently underway to mark the 1,050th anniversary of the baptism of Poland’s first Christian king, Mieszko I. The country will also host a July 27-31 visit by the Pope as part of the 14th international celebration of World Youth Day in Krakow.

    The article says there are about 200 abortions per year in Poland. That’s 200 souls – if you believe that a soul is produced at fertilization – that are sent to either Hell or Limbo by a so-called all-powerful and loving Bible God, despite these 200 souls having done anything wrong except manage to be aborted before they were baptized. Oh, the RCC says we are allowed to “hope” that Bible God won’t be a monster and send them to Hell, but the Church dogma is pretty clear – no baptism = no salvation.

    Who could worship such a god and maintain their humanity?

    And if Bible God is so opposed to abortion, why does He have His own recipe in Numbers 5?
