“The residents don’t want any of their relatives to be the first to be buried and to lie there alone.”
—Leszek Frasunek, head of Gilowice borough in Silesia province, explaining why a new cemetery has remained empty for over two months

“We treat it as something that pollutes the air in the Sejm.”
—Jarosław Kaczyński, leader of the opposition Law and Justice party, on the Palikot Movement, the third largest parliamentary caucus with 40 deputies

“They have a parliamentary majority of just four votes. A flu epidemic, a car accident involving four deputies or some heavy drinking will be enough to shake it.”
—Jerzy Urban, editor-in-chief of the outspoken NIE weekly, on the Civic Platform-Polish People’s Party coalition

“Today, women’s reproductive rights in Poland are to a large extent controlled by the officials of a country with a zero birth rate—the Vatican.”
—Prof. Magdalena ¦roda, an ethicist, criticizing the Catholic Church’s interference in Polish politics and calling for a resumed parliamentary debate on the abortion law, sex education in schools and easy access to contraceptives
