Thousands of women across Poland are expected to go on strike in both their working and domestic lives to protest against a proposed new law that will effectively ban abortions.

Female workers across the country are planning to stage the walk-out tomorrow in a bid to bring the economy to a standstill and highlight their disgust at the proposed abortion bill.

They plan to wear black all day and will also refrain from doing any domestic chores in the household, including cooking and cleaning, as well as abstaining from sex.

Poland currently allows terminating pregnancy only at an early stage and when it threatens the life or health of the mother, when the baby is likely to be permanently handicapped or when pregnancy originates from a crime, for example rape or incest.
