Polish women put black clothes back on and returned to the streets Sunday, launching another round of protests against efforts by the nation's conservative leaders to tighten Poland's already restrictive abortion law.Similar protests took place earlier this month against a proposal for a total ban on abortion.In many cases, however, doctors have declared themselves conscientious objectors to abortions and refuse to perform them even in those cases.Official statistics show there were 1,040 legal abortions in Poland last year, although many more abortions are known to take place, with women or traveling to neighboring countries for the procedure or ordering abortion-inducing pills online.
