October 31, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) ― Pro-life leaders from around the world have expressed solidarity with their Polish counterparts, and thanked them for their dedication to protecting life.
In a compilation video released by LifeSiteNews today, Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life; Abby Johnson, the author of Unplanned; John Smeaton of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) in the United Kingdom, and LifeSiteNews’ own John-Henry Westen praised Poland for having found eugenic abortion, the practice of killing disabled children in the womb, incompatible with the constitution.
“God bless you for the way you protect the unborn,” said Fr. Pavone.
“We wish that our constitution and so many other constitutions protected them the way yours does, and thank you for resisting efforts to change that.”
The well-wishers also congratulated the Poles for protecting their churches and patriotic monuments from demonstrators agitating for the legal right to kill unborn children.
“We are standing with you amidst all these battles,” Pavone said.
Abby Johnson said that Catholics in the West are all jealous of Poland’s protection of unborn babies.
“We love you, we honor you, you’re all a great witness to the right to life of all human beings from conception until natural death,” she said.
John Smeaton, SPUC’s Chief Executive, took a break from his holiday in Cyprus to remark on the recent events in Poland and the backlash against the nation’s Constitutional Tribunal “encouraged by the worldwide pro-abortion media.”

Since the Constitutional Court of Poland's decision on October 22nd to protect and vindicate the right to life of sick preborn children, leftist pro-abort feminists have been attacking churches, government officials and pro-lifers across Poland in a foul display of bloody-minded vulgarity.
But, we STAND with Poland. And, we PRAY for Poland.
Please WATCH this video which congratulates faithful Catholics in Poland for their pro-life example and for standing up to rioters trying to vandalize statues, churches.
We now call on all pro-lifers, faithful Christians (especially in the Polish diaspora) and pro-life organizations to SIGN this petition to encourage pro-lifers in Poland, the Polish Constitutional Court, and especially the Polish Government to remain steadfastly pro-life right now.
And we call on all faithful Polish Catholics to defend their churches and patriotic monuments!
This is the time to keep faith with generations of Polish heroes and "Be not afraid!"
This is not the time for the Government to give-in to demands from the opposition.
Stand up against the people who are attacking your churches while baying for the blood of innocent preborn children!
And, explain to your people how the Court was RIGHT to have challenged the abortion law allowing the barbaric practice of eugenic abortion.
Poland is a republican democracy, and in such a democracy, the Constitutional Court has the last say on matters of national importance.
The Polish Court has spoken, and its ruling should be respected and implemented. And, under no circumstances should the Polish Government promise to reverse this decision in law or by granting a referendum on the same.
Poland, be courageous and stand fast for Life. Don't give in to the Culture of Death!
Thank you for your example, Poland. Now, remain strong!
And, thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition of support and solidarity with the Constitutional Court of Poland's decision to disallow eugenic abortion.
Thank you also for standing with and praying for Polish pro-lifers and government officials to remain steadfastly pro-life during time of leftist, pro-abortion aggression.
After you sign and share, could you also take the time to congratulate the Polish pro-life movement for their historic victory in defense of human life, and to offer emotional and spiritual support? Please contact:

“We totally support your continued efforts both to establish and maintain protection for unborn children in your laws,” he said. “Thank you, Poland, for giving such a wonderful, global lead.”
Mary Wagner, who is very well-known in Poland for her sacrifices on behalf of the unborn in Canada, gave a special message to her old friends.
“Dear brothers and sisters in Poland, thank you for protecting life,” Wagner began.
“Thank you to the constitutional court for rejecting eugenic abortion. My prayers are with you at this difficult time as you face opposition. May God give you grace, strength and peace to continue living the Gospel of Life in truth and love,” she continued. “God bless you.”
