Politicians about Andrzej Duda's decision regarding the morning-after pill.  Silence on the side of the opposition

President Andrzej Duda decided to veto the amendment to the pharmaceutical law, which was to introduce the availability of the morning-after pill in Poland without a prescription.

“The basic justification for the decision of the President of the Republic of Poland is the will to respect constitutional rights and the standard of health protection of children,” explained the statement from the Chancellery of the President.

Magdalena Biejat about Andrzej Duda's decision

Magdalena Biejat commented on the president's decision. She called it outright “a harmful idea.” – Let us remember that the morning-after pill, according to information from WHO and the research that has been conducted, is safe regardless of the age at which it is taken, and protects against unwanted pregnancy, said the deputy speaker of the Senate.

And next. – I believe that young girls should have access to it just like adult women. Young girls can also get pregnant and there may be various situations from which we should protect them, we heard.

The left comments on the veto of the law on the morning-after pill

Biejat is not the only MP from the Left who commented on the president's decision. Anna Maria Żukowska, head of the Left Parliamentary Club, also spoke on the matter. A few days ago, she visited Andrzej Duda together with a delegation of party MPs for a conversation regarding the signing of the law on the morning-after pill.

“Failed to. However, we, as MPs from the Left, did everything we could. But for real change to be possible, we must elect a president who will not have any dilemmas about women's rights,” the politician wrote.

Paulina Matysiak visited the Presidential Palace with her. “President Duda's decision to veto the amendment to the pharmaceutical law primarily affects women who live in small and medium-sized towns, where access to a doctor, especially on weekends, is very difficult,” wrote the MP.

Matysiak makes it clear. “I think that child protection is a veil for the president. Women in Poland still cannot make decisions about their lives, even when it comes to purchasing emergency contraception,” we read.

Civic Coalition writes about “plan B”

Similar voices appear from representatives of the Civic Coalition. Michał Szczerba posted a fairly short entry on the presidential decision. “Duda's veto. There are simply no words!” – he wrote.

“The President's veto regarding the morning-after pill without a prescription. It's time to implement plan B. Don't worry, we will do everything to make women in Poland feel safe,” assured Kinga Gajewska. The mentioned “plan B” is to be presented on Friday by Health Minister Izabela Leszczyna.

These actions were also announced by Katarzyna Lubnauer, deputy minister of education. “President Andrzej Duda vetoed emergency contraception without a prescription. Don't worry, Minister Izabela Leszczyna knows how to deal with this obstacle. It's a pity that the President is against Polish women again,” she wrote.

Silence on the side of the opposition

Much fewer voices, but much more positive towards Andrzej Duda's decision, appear from the other side of the Sejm hall. “Polish teenagers will not buy an abortion pill in a pharmacy!” – announced Maria Kurowska, MP from Sovereign Poland.

And next. “President Andrzej Duda vetoed the bill on access to the morning-after pill without a prescription and without age restrictions! In the justification, he mentioned that he had received a petition signed by 30,000 Poles who asked for a veto,” we read in the MP's entry

The Confederation also commented on the matter. The party responded to the entry of the Speaker of the Sejm, Szymon Hołownia, who informed about receiving a letter with the president's decision. “Great message!” – wrote the party. A red heart icon has been added to the entry.
