Six years ago, Polish activists made international headlines when they compared abortion to genocide. In the city of Poznań, posters depicting Adolf Hitler appeared next to graphic images of foetuses.
This month, those images have resurfaced, as Polish pro-life activists push for a complete ban on abortion — a move that would make Poland’s policies the most restrictive in Europe.
For many Americans, graphic abortion imagery seems familiar. In Poland, pro-life posters are often blood-red and blown up to several feet tall. Many include coins to illustrate scale.
But strangely, those coins are not euros or Polish złoty – they are American dimes and quarters.
