In the face of country-wide protests, the government of Poland is delaying the publication of a court ruling which found unconstitutional a law allowing abortions in cases of fetal abnormality.
"There is a discussion going on, and it would be good to take some time for dialogue and for finding a new position in this situation that is difficult and stirs high emotions," Michal Dworczyk, the head of the Prime Minister's office, told the Associated Press.
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has appealed for talks with the protesters and opposition lawmakers to find a solution, the AP reports.
The court ruling, which has no legal power until its publication in the Journal of Laws, had been scheduled to be published Nov. 2.
