Three doctors in Poland are accused of killing a pregnant woman

Three doctors have been accused by prosecutors in southern Poland in connection with the death of a 30-year-old pregnant woman last year, it was announced on Thursday.

According to Agnieszka Wichary, a spokesperson for the Katowice prosecutor’s office, the patient was accused of being put in risk of dying.

The patient has passed away as a result of the team’s activity and inaction, according to Wichary’s statement.

Additionally, two of the doctors were accused of negligently causing the patient’s death. They risk up to five years in prison if found guilty.

The sepsis-related death of Iza in September 2017 at a hospital in Pszczyna during her 22nd week of pregnancy sparked widespread demonstrations against Poland’s draconian anti-abortion law.
