Curated by FG Contributor Samiha Hossain A court in Poland has convicted activist Justyna Wydrzynska for helping a pregnant woman experiencing intimate partner violence access abortion pills, sentencing her to eight months of community service. Wydrzynska, a member of Abortion Dream Team (ADT), an activist group helping Poles access drugs to facilitate terminations abroad, had faced up to three years in prison. She told the court in Warsaw that she had sent pills to a woman who was a victim of intimate partner violence. The woman had called an abortion line asking for help with terminating her pregnancy.
Thank you for sharing this story about Wydrzynska. I had not picked it up in my news, unfortunately.
