The Guardian says at least 34,000 women in Poland are known to have sought abortions illegally or abroad since the country introduced a near total ban on terminations a year ago.

According to Abortion Without Borders (AWB), an organisation that helps women access safe abortion services, more than 1,000 Polish women have sought second-trimester abortions in foreign clinics since the country passed draconian new laws.

AWB said its figures are likely to just be a snapshot of the true number of Polish women seeking illegal or foreign abortions in the past year. NGOs have estimated that 80 to 200,000 women a year sought illegal abortions under Poland’s old abortion laws, which still tightly restricted the conditions under which women could seek terminations.
