Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family. 


Yes, he is fucking stupid.And sorry, yes, Poland is fucking conservative. Hey, we are still on East, right? And East is intolerant and misogynistic. Because of history, and isolation. See Russia and Ukraine? Poland is like between EU and the East. You know what i mean. Salaries, views, traditions.
Most young people are just very angry at him. Older ones with eyes too. There are not so many who actually supports him, but they bring a lot of attention.
Thankfully, at least he lost his fucking job.Although I do not think he’ll be punish in any other way :/And he fucking should be.
But:Please don’t think all polish people are like his “fans”. Everything is changing here. Maybe slower than in other countries, but we are trying. There’s are HUGE changes. Poland is not like I remember it from my childhood.
