Poland's government has indicated that it will scrap a highly controversial draft law that would have banned all abortions after an international outcry.
Tens of thousands had rallied against the proposed law which would make the procedure illegal even in cases where the fetus was not expected to survive or the mother's life was in danger.
Science and higher education minister Jaroslaw Gowin said the demonstrations had "caused us to think and taught us humility" in an apparent indication that the government was pulling back from a total ban.
Poland already has tight restrictions on abortion, which is only allowed in cases of rape, incest, badly damaged fetuses or if the mother's life is at risk.
It also allows doctors to refuse to carry out abortions if they have moral objections.
