WARSAW, Poland (LifeSiteNews) – Last night, Polish president Andrzej Duda gave an unapologetically pro-family and pro-conservative interview with Tucker Carlson, specifically addressing Poland’s efforts to protect human life and aid citizens in the growth of their families.

“The [Polish] constitution stipulates that marriage, it says ‘a union of a man and woman, and family’ are protected by the government in a special way,” Polish president Andrzej Duda told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.

“So, for the first time since 1989, we have embarked on a very resolute and vast pro-family action,” he added.

Specifying the pro-family policies he has enacted, Duda told Carlson that when he ran for the president in 2015, he pledged to his people that he would financially compensate parents on a monthly basis in an effort to alleviate the monetary burden of raising children. Thus far, he has followed through on his pledge. “We decided that starting from the second child in a family, parents of every child would monthly receive 500 zlotys, some 130 [US] dollars,” he stated. “This program was revolutionized in Poland, I think nobody can imagine not to have the ‘500 plus’ program in Poland, that was the best thing, definitely the best social program we’ve been able to introduce,” continued the president.

Poland, like many Western countries, has suffered from extremely low birthrates since the advent and proliferation of birth control. However, since 2017, the birthrate in Poland has increased by 3.17 percent, an indication to many that the new pro-family incentives have been working. Further, in 2010, half of Poland’s births were women having their first child, whereas by 2017, that number fell to 43 percent, suggesting that the social program has encouraged a fair amount of families with one child to have more children.

“To me, a politician, speaking openly, I consider myself to be rather conservative,” said Duda. “I’ve always been frank about my views: I’m a Christian, I’m a practicing Christian, I pray, I’m not ashamed of that whatsoever,” he confessed. 

Duda is a practicing Catholic and on many occasions has been seen receiving the Sacrament of the Eucharist on the tongue while kneeling, the traditional and often considered the most reverent method of reception.

In contrast with United States’ “Catholic” president Joe Biden’s support of abortion, in last night’s broadcast Duda affirmed the Catholic Church’s dogmatic teachings surrounding the dignity of human life from the moment of conception.
