  Abortion   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Abortion, in its most common usage, refers to the deliberate early termination of a pregnancy, resulting in the death of the embryo or fetus.
Medically, the term also refers to the early termination of a pregnancy by natural causes ("spontaneous abortion" or miscarriage, which ends 1 in 5 of all pregnancies, usually within the first 13 weeks) or to the cessation of normal growth of a body part or organ.
Very late abortions can be brought about by the controversial intact dilation and extraction (D and X) or a hysterotomy abortion, similar to a caesarian section, and requiring the surgical decompression of the fetus's head before evacuation.

 History of abortion - Hitler, Planned Parenthood & Margaret Sanger
The development of Germany's abortion policy was left to the county's most vociferous abortion advocacy group, the Berlin Chamber of Physicians.
This group, which advocated abortion on demand, determined that "The health of the mother - considered from all angles - is the decisive factor." Then, just as now, health of the mother criterion was loosely understood to mean any economic or psychological affect on the woman's total well being.
And, in Nazi Germany, racial stock was considered an aspect of the health of the mother.

The history of East Germany, the communist part of divided Germany, is nowadays explored more thoroughly especially after East German Archives were made available to researchers.
Thus scholars considered abortion reform almost exclusively from the perspective of Erich Honecker, recently ensconced as First Secretary of the Politburo, and treated it as one piece of the social policies (such as benefits for working mothers) he introduced.
The abandonment of abortion reform in favor of the repeal of Article 11 demonstrates, however, that intentional pressures from below and outside the ruling circle could influence the kind of accommodation it had to make.

 lifeissues.net | The Abortion and Eugenics Policies of Nazi Germany
The campaign to legalize abortion, or to liberalize Section 218 of the 1871 national law forbidding it, was an issue for almost the entire history of the Weimar democracy, something not known even to most specialists who study this period.
Abortion, however, is now legal in most democracies, with the boast from those who believe in its legality that there is "choice" in the matter, that what the Nazis did was wrong because things were forced.
Abortion, on the other hand, takes a life that has already happened because an unborn is the other patient in any pregnancy(35) and is no longer considered by science a mere maternal appendage.(36) The Nazis, experts in killing, knew this.

Abortion rights advocates had been successful in stopping the immediate imposition of Paragraph 218 at the time of German unification in October 1990, yet the government's strategy of discrediting the GDR effectively tied the hands of east German legislators and activists and rendered east German women invisible.
The mandatory counseling measure, which requires all counselors to tell women seeking a legal abortion that abortion is the killing of life, can be read as an effort on the part of the state to insure that women are reminded that the fetus is a citizen and a member of the national community.
In this study of abortion politics I have argued that the abortion law reform debate was shaped significantly by the nationalization of the post-Wall public sphere and the unification of the two German states.

Abortion was declared illegal, but it was decriminalized, on the condition that it took place during the first three months of pregnancy and that women would attend a consultation with psychologists, doctors and social workers in a consultation center.
Of the 1,700 consultation centers that operate in Germany within the framework of the law, 270 are directed by Caritas and 126 by the social service for Catholic women.
The Bishops reaffirmed that in the consultation centers attempts are made to dissuade from abortion and, in fact, in 20% of the cases, the women have changed their mind.

He denounced abortion which, "in addition to being an abominable crime, is an absurd impoverishment of the person and of society itself." He went on to declare that the State could never be a substitute for the family.
As the experience of the past 25 years has shown, legalized abortion has been a destructive force in the lives of many individuals, especially women who are often left alone to bear the deep sorrow and regret which follow the decision to destroy the life of an unborn child.
But the proliferation of procured abortions has also had deleterious effects on society at large, not least in a weakening of respect for the life of the elderly and the infirm, and a coarsening of the moral sense.
