A line has been crossed and we are not going to back down.”

Marta Kotwas, a researcher at UCL’s School of Slavonic and Eastern European Studies specialising in rightwing populism in Poland, said: “There is so much anger because people can see how the abortion issue is being exploited as a political issue, how women are being used as a bargaining chip by political actors.” …
