The Guardian and the Washington Post talk of the right "changing the constitution" without mentioning what that means, I think to raise the interest-level of the story to their left-wing readerships.

Abortion is already illegal in Poland (though still practiced), and they haven't promised to change the constitution to define marriage as between only a man and a woman.

Though it's possible, and they would have the votes...
