Open letter to the European Parliament. Prominent women of politics, culture, sciences and business demand democratic debate on the situation of women in Poland. According to the authors the debate, especially discussion about reproductive rights of women, is silenced because of entente between the government and the Catholic Church. In return for support of the Church during accession referendum the government ceased debates on liberalisation of the abortion law.
