Leszek Miller left no stone unturned on the Left MPs.  "Five Naive"

Andrzej Duda vetoed the law on the morning-after pill. Earlier, he met with MPs from the Left on this matter.

On Tuesday, March 26, a delegation of MPs from the Left went to the Presidential Palace. Anna Maria Żukowska, Marcelina Zawisza, Wanda Nowicka, Paulina Matysiak and Joanna Scheuring-Wielgus met with Andrzej Duda. The parliamentarians wanted to convince the head of state to sign the law on the morning-after pill.

MPs from the Left met with Andrzej Duda

– We presented the president with all possible arguments of a medical, social and political nature, said Anna Maria Żukowska. – You know us and you know perfectly well that the fight for women's rights and women's well-being is simply in our hearts. And regardless of what is happening, how it is happening, when it is happening – we always speak loudly about women's rights and we will use every hour, every day to fight for women's rights – added Joana Scheuring-Wielgus.

As it turns out, the mission of the Left MPs failed because Andrzej Duda vetoed the bill. The former head of the SLD, Leszek Miller, commented on the action of the parliamentarians in harsh words. “Duda's request is in vain. Five naive ones,” the former prime minister wrote on social media. He attached a photo of Left Wing politicians to the post, taken in front of the Presidential Palace.

Andrzej Duda vetoed the bill

The Chancellery of the President issued a statement explaining that the President, listening in particular to the voice of parents, could not accept legal solutions enabling children under eighteen years of age to have access to medicinal products for contraception without medical supervision and bypassing the role and responsibility of parents.

– Andrzej Duda's position is not about whether such drugs should be available, but about who they should be available to, and whether parents and doctors participate in this process. Today, if a patient under 18 years of age goes to a doctor, he or she must be accompanied by a parent, and co-decision-making, e.g. on consent to a medical procedure, begins only at the age of 16. Before that, it is decided by parents or legal guardians – explained Małgorzata Paprocka from KPRP.
