Agata undergoes abortion

The pregnancy of a 14-year-old girl from Lublin named Agata was ended last Wednesday when, with government consent, an abortion was performed.

The story of Agata, who was initially denied permission to have an abortion, was broken by Gazeta Wyborcza and it was originally claimed that she had been raped, although doubt has since been cast on that claim.

The story polarized the pro-life and feminist communities.
