In the letter, 38 of Lithuania‘s 141 lawmakers voiced deep concerns over the recent moves to completely termination pregnancy in Poland.

“Poland already has one of the strictest laws on access to abortion, which allows women to terminate pregnancy only in three extreme cases: when her life and/or health is threatened, when the pregnancy is the result of a criminal act or when the foetus is severely damaged. This seriously affects many women and families on a daily basis, particularly those poor and uneducated ones and pushes them to use back-street abortions or to travel abroad,” reads the letter signed by members of Lithuania’s ruling Social Democrats and opposition Liberals and conservatives.
