Poland’s Law – level 1

27-10-2020 07:00

Poland has a new law. The law is about abortion. Abortion means that doctors end a woman’s pregnancy. The new law makes abortion illegal.

Abortion will be legal only in special situations. The situations are a sexual attack and a sexual relationship between members of one family. It will also be legal when the mother’s life will be at risk.

Poland is a very religious country. Many people are happy with the new law. But some people do not agree with the new law.

Many women believe that they can decide about their life. Poland’s law is one of the strictest in Europe. It separates the country from the rest of Europe.

Difficult words: pregnancy (when a woman has a baby in her body), illegal (not officially possible, something that you cannot do), at risk (in danger), religious (when people believe in god).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
