Pro-choice campaigners mark 40 years of legal abortion in Britain next week, but say their hard-won right is under pressure from pro-life activists trying to lower the 24-week limit for the termination of pregnancy.

Britain will mark the 40th anniversary of the day the Abortion Act came into force on April 28, 1968.

HOW IS IT IN POLAND - The 1993 law allows abortion only if pregnancy threatens a woman's life or health, results from rape or incest, or if the foetus is irreparably damaged. In 1996 it was liberalised to allow women to end a pregnancy before the 12th week because of poverty or other social problems. Today it's like as before 1996.
