The Center for Reproductive Rights and the Federation for Women and Family Planning submitted updated information to the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe regarding Poland’s implementation of three judgments of the European Court of Human Rights regarding access to legal abortion and associated reproductive health care and information: Tysiąc v. Poland (App. No. 5410/03), R.R. v. Poland (Appl. No. 27617/04), and P. and S. v. Poland (App. No. 57375/08).
The submission highlights that more than 15 years after these judgments, the Polish authorities have still not taken any effective measures to give effect to the judgments contrary to its international human rights obligations.
