People have taken to the streets as the government attempts to ban nearly all abortions.

Large protests have erupted in Poland as the federal government makes an attempt to ban practically all abortions.

We spent an evening on the streets with the protesters as some had been overwhelmed and pepper-sprayed by police.

The Catholic nation already has strict guidelines on abortion however the brand new regulation would cease girls whose infants had been more likely to die after beginning from having terminations.

Shocked by the size of the protests, the federal government has delayed the ban, however some hospitals have already began turning girls away.
