Who needs to see objects that far away?!
Okay, so life is shit for women in Poland.
When Alicja Tysiac became pregnant in February 2000, three eye specialists told her having another baby could put her eyesight at serious risk. But neither the specialists nor her GP would authorise an abortion. After giving birth later that year, Ms Tysiac suffered a retinal haemorrhage and feared she [might] go blind. She now wears glasses with thick powerful lenses but she cannot see objects more than a metre and a half (5ft) away.
Yeah, so? If she didn’t want to go blind she shouldn’t have gotten pregnant! Not in Poland anyway.
