A leader of Poland's pro-abortion movement urged Catholics to oppose the Catholic Church's opposition to abortion in the country, even suggesting the possibility of vandalism or other attacks on Catholic churches.
"Dear Catholics, at the moment, you have a chance to oppose your church. At the moment, you partake in what is going on, in this disgusting stuff the Church is doing. And this is the final warning, because you should revolt, your communities, you - engaged in the life of the church," Marta Lempart said during an Oct. 26 interview with Poland's Radio ZET.
Lempart, 41, is a leader of Strajk Kobiet, a group organizing protests across Poland that began Oct. 22, after the country's constitutional court ruled that a law permitting abortion for fetal abnormalities was unconstitutional. The ruling, which cannot be appealed, could lead to a significant reduction in the number of abortions in the country.
Protests have focused on Catholic churches, because of the Church's opposition to abortion in the country.
