This weekend, the international women’s rights group, Women on Waves, will launch something called an “abortion drone” into the skies in Frankfurt an der Oder, Germany, fly it about a mile to Slubice Poland, and pepper the country with packets of abortion pills.
The stunt is meant to make a statement about the current reproductive rights in Poland, versus the rest of Europe. Access to abortions have been limited since 1993, and currently women are only allowed to have them in the case of rape, incest, or if a mother’s life is threatened by the fetus.
Per its press release:
“The Abortion drone will mark the different reality for Polish women to access to safe abortion services compared to other women in Europe. In almost all European countries abortion is legal, only in Poland, Ireland and Malta abortion is illegal and women’s rights are still violated.“
