    There have been large protests in Poland against the near-total ban of abortions by the country’s top court. The country’s prime minister has promised to defend what conservatives see as an unborn child’s right to life. But for a ninth straight day, activists said they would not be stopped by politicians or the threat of coronavirus – as they fight to try to get the legislation overturned.
