Protesters Decry Poland's Proposed Near-Total Ban on Abortion. Poland's ruling right-wing party on Friday pushed forward with a nearly complete ban on abortion, and women around the country and in cities across Europe rose up this weekend to condemn the legislation. The new anti-abortion bill "proposes to permit abortion only if the pregnancy threatens the mother's life," according to the Telegraph, forcing victims of rape or incest to carry those pregnancies to term. "Women who have terminations could be jailed for between three months and five years, while practitioners of illegal abortions could also face five-year sentences, up from two years at present," the newspaper adds.

People around the world are protesting in support of Polish activists. Poland already has very strict abortion regulations, where the practice is explicitly banned except for extreme cases like incest or rape, if the mother’s health is definitely in danger, and if the fetus isn’t viable.

Nazis converted many parts of their victims’ bodies into useful items, our guide explains. Bones were made into buttons.

Human ash fertilized fields and skin was stretched into lampshades — “especially if it had interesting tattoos.” What Can We Learn From a Nazi Time Capsule?
