Written observation by third parties submitted before the European Court of Human Rights, First Section, and co-signed by PRO VITA Bucharest and Alliance of Romania’s Families, in the following cases: A.L. – B. v. Poland (nos 3801/21, 4218/21, 5114/21, 5390/21), K.C. v. Poland (nos 3639/21, 4188/21, 5876/21, 6030/21), K.B. v. Poland (nos 1819/21, 3682/21, 4957/21, 6217/21). The applicants, supported by the Federation for Women and Family Planning and the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights, argue that the ban on eugenic abortion in Poland, enforced in 2020 following a decision of the Constitutional Tribunal, violates their right to respect for their private lives and the prohibition of inhuman and degrading treatment under Articles 8 and 3 of the Convention respectively.
We respectfully intervene for the Government of Poland. In summary, we consider that eugenic abortion is contrary to human rights and, because of the very nature of the act, it can never be a right or a freedom.
