AMSTERDAM — Despite a failed maiden voyage to Ireland in 2001, the Dutch “abortion ship” has departed for Catholic Poland to offer pregnancy terminations to Polish women in international waters.
The ship, operated by the Women on Waves foundation, is expected to arrive in the Polish harbour Wladyslawowo on Saturday and will remain there for two weeks. Polish law only allows abortion in limited cases such as after rape or for health reasons.
Don’t just sit there, pray something.
Update: WLADYSLAWOWO, Poland (Reuters) – The crew of a Dutch floating abortion clinic accused Poland on Saturday of denying their ship entry into a port in the Roman Catholic country which has strict laws on terminating pregnancy.
