Amicus in the case of Justyna Wydrzyńska, activist criminalized for helping a woman access a safe abortion in Poland

Women's Link Worldwide has filed an amicus brief in the case of Justyna Wydrzyńska, a Polish activist criminalized for helping a woman access a safe abortion. Poland currently has one of the most restrictive legal frameworks for accessing abortion in Europe, which puts the lives of women and those who may become pregnant at risk.

In our amicus brief, we explain the need for a broad interpretation of the right to life ground; the right of activists to defend rights; the human rights violations involved in the reprisals against Justyna, specifically her rights to freedom of expression and association; and the impact this criminalization has on other women human rights defenders and women in general.
