A total of 15 lawmakers from Poland’s governing coalition are being threatened with a fine for breaking with the party line and voting in favor of a bill that would have totally banned abortion, reports LifeSiteNews.com.
The bill was rejected by the Polish parliament earlier this week in a razor-thin 191-186 vote.
Before the vote, the largest governing coalition member, the Civic Platform (PO) Party, had ordered party discipline – something that it rarely does on ideological issues - forcing its members to reject the historic bill.
However, 15 PO lawmakers bucked the party’s orders and voted in favor of the abortion ban anyway. Two others abstained.
