The president of Poland's bishops' conference has urged critics of a landmark abortion ruling to express their opposition "in a socially acceptable way" after protesters disrupted Sunday Masses.
Archbishop Stanisław Gądecki issued the appeal Oct. 25, after the country's constitutional court ruled Thursday that a law permitting abortion for fetal abnormalities was unconstitutional.
In a highly anticipated ruling, the Constitutional Tribunal in Warsaw declared that the law introduced in 1993 was incompatible with Poland's constitution.
The ruling, which cannot be appealed, could lead to a significant reduction in the number of abortions in the country.
