BEHEMOTH frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski has slammed the Polish government’s near-total ban on abortion, saying the country is “moving back to the obscure, scary, medieval past.”
This past October, the predominantly Catholic nation’s Constitutional Court ruled to ban terminations of pregnancies with fetal defects. Abortion will now only be permitted in cases of rape or incest, or when the mother’s health or life is in danger.
“Today Polish government imposed a near-total ban on all abortions, including the termination of pregnancies with fetal defect,” Nergal wrote on social media. “I’m passionately enraged!! Becoz of this political discourse Poland has been on downward spiral to social oblivion for years now. We are moving back to the obscure, scary, medieval past.
“From now on my dear women, in the eyes of Polish political leaders you are just a breeding tool in their rigorous Catholic narration, u have NO control over your body whatsoever.”
“The consequences of choosing religious fundamentalists as your country’s authorities: continuous limitations and censorship of main human liberties.
“What one can do? Well, the battle is lost… but the war is to be won by those enlightened, forward thinking.
“Do NOT cease your fight, spread the word, speak up and support Polish women in their relentless struggle! EXTERMINATE RELIGIOUS CANCER! F*ck the system! ***** *** !!!!”
