Warsaw, Krakow, and Poznań were among the cities in which Catholic churches were targeted for attack yesterday. For example, pro-abortion protesters invaded Poznań Cathedral during Mass, chained themselves to the altar rails and occupied the historic building for a few hours.

Bands of pro-abortion activists attacked Catholic churches in Polish cities yesterday, amidst days of protest following a historic pro-life legal ruling that eugenic abortion violates the Polish Constitution.
“Crowds of people took to the streets screaming ‘Get the f*** out’,” journalist Krystian Kratiuk told LifeSiteNews over email, and explained that this is the “official slogan” of the four-day-old pro-abortion protest.
“On Sunday they organized an action of attacking churches, entering them, interrupting Masses and shouting ‘get the f*** out’ in front of [them],” Kratiuk added.
“Left-wing MPs do the same and the mainstream journalists loudly support the crime, as interrupting Mass is in Poland.”
Warsaw, Krakow, and Poznań were among the cities in which Catholic churches were targeted for attack yesterday. For example, pro-abortion protesters invaded Poznań Cathedral during Mass, chained themselves to the altar rails and occupied the historic building for a few hours. Their signs expressed such sentiments as “Catholics also need abortion” and “Shame.”
On Saturday they had demonstrated outside Poznań’s Bishop’s Palace and some forced their way inside.
“Mostly the protests look like this: they enter the church with their signs and stand before the altar with them,” Poznań native Bartosz Skrzypczak, 20, told LifeSiteNews over social media.
“But some of them are much more aggressive, as those in Poznań.”
Faithful Catholics across the country took upon themselves the task of protecting their churches from the pro-abortion demonstrators. One Pole, Piotr, 32, told LifeSiteNews that he helped patrol the streets of Krakow from 9 PM until midnight last night.
“It was a bottom-up movement,” he explained, “inspired by some people connected to [political party] Konfederacja, with a special involvement of people in the National Movement.”
