There has been a discussion about abortion in Germany. They want to soften paragraph 219a about information distribution on terminating unintended pregnancies. Prochoice said it needs to be abolished because women have the rights to get informed about their sexuality and reproductive health. Others want to keep the ban in place.

Local.de has a nice piece of article. They told us about the proposed changes. Not only that, but also show how women dealing with unintended pregnancy find out what they can do about it. Then, with women's perspective, they look at the reason of authorities see doctors providing information on abortion as 'advertising' the medical procedure. Rachel Loxton, the writer, digs the affect of proposed changed towards women. Some politicians also have some say. So, what's next?
