Abortion Dream Team


Abortion Dream Team (ADT) is a grass roots initiative of four women human rights defenders who came together in October 2016 with the goal of providing direct and immediate assistance to women who needed abortions. ADT campaigns against abortion stigma in Poland and counsels Polish women on how to safely find and take abortion pills. ADT is a member of Abortion Without Borders (AWB), a network of groups working for abortion freedom and access in Europe.

Human rights defenders (HRDs) in Poland work for the protection and promotion of variety specific issues of political, civil, economic, social and cultural rights. However, the most problematic issues are the following: police misconduct, corruption, inefficiency and lack of the independence of the judiciary, laws that restrict freedom of speech and assembly, violations of workers' rights, discrimination against women, societal discrimination and violence against ethnic minorities, gays, lesbians, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI).
