The Polish Supreme Court rules that abortion for a disabled fetus is unconstitutional. Her decision is final, which is why Poland, which currently only has 2000 abortions a year, becomes another country where abortions are considered a homicide, especially those that involve discrimination before birth (ex. SD Persons).

An article in American paper The New York Times said, “In the ruling, the tribunal’s president, Julia Przylebska, said that allowing abortions in cases of fetal abnormality legalized “eugenic practices concerning an unborn child, thus denying it the respect and protection of human dignity. Because the Polish Constitution guarantees a right to life, she added that terminating a pregnancy based on the fetus’s health amounted to ‘a directly forbidden form of discrimination.”

From a bioethical point of view is a step forward to eliminate the eugenics practice of discriminating against disabled people before birth. It is also a fact that confirms that East countries are more pro-life than Western ones.
