    Poles staged further protests on Monday ahead of the expected entry into force of a ruling by the Constitutional Tribunal that bans most abortions, which that has prompted nearly two weeks of demonstrations and rallies. Protesters blocked traffic in several streets in central Warsaw sitting on the road and tram tracks. Traffic was also blocked in several other cities across Poland. The Oct. 22 ruling bans terminations due to fetal defects, ending one of the few legal grounds left for abortion in staunchly Catholic Poland and setting the country further apart from Europe’s mainstream. Protesters have flooded into the streets almost every day since the ruling, defying coronavirus restrictions that ban gatherings of more than five people, in an outpouring of anger against the verdict, and more broadly against the nationalist government and its allies in the Roman Catholic Church. The government is expected to publish the ruling later on Monday in its official gazette, meaning it has entered into legal force.
