This essay examines the different views on the inauguration of ”baby boxes” in the Polish society. The public debate in Poland has long been infused by catholic rethorics. The setting-up of ”baby boxes” in the Polish society has been warmly welcomed by conservatives in the country. The catholic church has taken on the responsibilty for the ”baby boxes”, and today most of the operating boxes in the country are being financed by different catholic organisations. The most common argument in favor of the boxes is that they rescue lives. The voices that speak out against the fenomena are very few. People who criticize the fenomena are being harassed and that is why many people restrain from opposing it in the public debate. This essay intends to lift the voices criticizing the existence of baby boxes, as well as introducing arguments of those in favor of the fenomena. By exploring the chosen actors polarised views on the fenomena, the essay aims to illustrate the wide complexity of its existence. It also aims to examine whether the arguments that reemerge in the debate can be understood as different master suppression techniques that are being used to subordinate Polish women. (Less)
