Inadmissibility decision concerning Poland

Main hall stairs of the Human Rights building

The Court has declared the applications in the case of A.M. and Others v. Poland inadmissible.

The applications concerned restrictions on abortion rights in Poland. The applicants alleged that, following amendments to the legislative framework in 2020, they have effectively been banned from having access to legal abortion in the case of foetal abnormalities.

The Court found that the applicants had failed to provide any convincing medical evidence proving that they had been at real risk of being directly affected by the legislative amendments. Nor had they produced any documents relating to their personal circumstances, making it impossible to assess their individual situations.
