Radio Sweden: Swedish Greens push for subsidised abortions for Polish women

  • The Green Party in Skåne wants Sweden to help Polish women carry out abortions here, by offering them subsidised pregnancy terminations on the same terms as Swedish nationals.
  • The Polish government recently backed a court ruling rendering abortion due to fetal defects unconstitutional, a move that sparked nationwide protests.
  • Mätta Ivarsson, group leader for the Greens in Skåne, told Radio Sweden that her party’s proposal is not about intervening in Polish affairs but about “making a statement”.
