Abolish §219a

TERRE DES FEMMES Menschenrechte für die Frau

Issue 60 | September 2021


Just in time for the 40th anniversary of the women's rights organisation Terre des Femmes the task was to call the questionable paragraph 219a of the German Penal Code back to the Germans' memory. This almost 90 years old paragraph still prohibits doctors who perform abortions from providing public information about methods and risks - even on their own website. As a result, a lot of misinformation on the topic circulates on the net, doctors are frequently denounced by pro-life movements and ultimately, unintentionally pregnant women are denied important information.
