Thirteen-year-old Pola is one of an estimated 50, children in Poland being raised by same-sex couples. Like most of those children, Pola is growing up with her biological mother, Anna Adamowicz, together with her wife, Agnieszka. Pola was born during Anna's previous relationship with a man and her father continues to play an active role in her upbringing. Together for more than a decade, Anna and Agnieszka married in Copenhagen three years ago, but their marriage is not legally recognised in Poland, whose constitution stipulates that marriage is a union of a man and a woman.

Poland’s Replacement for Istanbul Convention Would Ban Abortion and Gay Marriage | Balkan Insight
In the letter — leaked to BIRN and published below in its entirety for the first time — which was sent last year to at least four governments in the region Croatia, Czechia, Slovakia and Slovenia , the Polish Justice Ministry sets out its vision over five pages for an alternative to the Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence Against Women and Domestic Violence , to give the Istanbul Convention its full name. The ideas laid out in the ministerial letter appear to be, to some extent, a summary of a draft international family rights convention prepared by the Ordo Iuris Institute for Legal Culture in cooperation with former Polish MEP Marek Jurek from the Christian Social Congress. Last year, Polish Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro, a hardline Catholic whose United Poland party is a junior member of the Law and Justice-led PiS government, filed an official request with the Ministry for Family, Work and Social Policy asking it to initiate proceedings for withdrawing the country from the Istanbul Convention, which he argued was damaging to the family and Polish culture. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, despite publicly criticising the Istanbul Convention, in the end decided to park the issue by asking in July the PiS-controlled Constitutional Tribunal to assess the legality of the Istanbul Convention.

Prostitution in Poland is legal, but operating brothels or other forms of pimping or coercive prostitution and prostitution of minors are prohibited. The travelling prostitute is recorded in the tenth century. Dozens of brothels thrived on the outskirts of central Warsaw since its establishment as the national capital in the sixteenth century, as in other large Polish cities and towns. These cities established municipal brothels and taxed both prostitutes and brothel keepers. The first recorded brothel Dom publiczny - literally public house in Poland is considered to be in Bochnia in the 15th century, which catered to merchants who came to buy salt from the mines there.
