Organisers of the nationwide protests, a collection of Polish women’s rights groups, said that Dorota was the fifth pregnant woman to have died in Polish hospitals due to complications since the country’s Constitutional Tribunal introduced a near-total ban on abortion in October 2020. Approximately 1,500 people turned up for the Warsaw protest, chanting, “Not one more”.
