Published: 14.07.2022

In a judgment of October 22, 2020, the Constitutional Tribunal ruled that the statutory provision allowing eugenic abortion is inconsistent with the Constitution of the Republic of Poland. The challenged provision concerned the permissibility of terminating a pregnancy, and thus killing a conceived child, in a situation where prenatal tests or other medical reasons indicate a high probability of a severe and irreversible impairment or an incurable disease that threatens the child's life.

The ruling of the Tribunal entered into force on the day of its publication in the Journal of Laws on January 27, 2021, becoming universally binding. Thus, abortion is banned in Poland for eugenic reasons. The judgment is final. Polish law does not know the procedure that would allow for its contestation.
