Women’s rights groups are planning to deliver abortion pills by drone fromGermany to Poland in an attempt to help women in the country terminate their pregnancies safely.

The “abortion drone” will carry World Health Organisation-approved drugs from Frankfurt an der Oder to the Polish border town of Slubice on Saturday, where it will be met by women’s groups who will hand on the pills to those who need them.

The mission being planned by Women on Waves, a non-profit group of doctors and activists from the Netherlands. Poland, a strictly Roman Catholic country, is one of the few places in Europe where women can get a legal abortion only ifthere is proof of rape or incest, the mother’s life is endangered or the foetus is severely malformed.
