Poland's constitutional court published on Wednesday the rationale for its declaration that abortion for fetal abnormalities is unconstitutional three months after it made the ruling.
In the highly anticipated ruling on Oct. 22, the Constitutional Tribunal in Warsaw said that the law introduced in 1993 was incompatible with Poland's constitution.
But the law did not come into effect until the ruling was published in the country's Journal of Laws on Jan. 27.
The 154-page ruling said: "In the opinion of the Tribunal, an unborn child is, as a human being -- a person who enjoys innate and inalienable dignity, a subject who has the right to life; and the legal system must, according to Article 38 of the Constitution, must guarantee due protection for this central good, without which this subjectivity would be deleted."
