Germany Set to Pass Law Curbing Pro-Life Protests 

Germany Set to Pass Law Curbing Pro-Life Protests 

Estimated 100,000 unborn babies are aborted in Germany each year.

The German government is set to pass a new law curbing prayer vigils and pro-life protests outside abortion clinics. Germany’s Minister of Family Affairs, Lisa Paus, on Thursday proposed new legislation restricting pro-life protests.

The announcement comes as Christian groups mobilize grassroots campaign against the government’s push to legalize abortion.

Abortion is illegal in Germany. However, it is currently permitted under certain conditions and must be carried out within 12 weeks of conception. Germany’s Socialist and Green Party-dominated government wants to ease further restrictions on abortion.

This year, Christian groups in Germany have joined forces with a U.S.-based pro-life initiative, “40 Days for Life,” to take a stand against the government’s proposed move. As part of the initiative, they are forming prayer vigils outside abortion clinics across Germany, earning the ire of the government and the country’s leftwing establishment.

Besides prayer and fasting, the “public centerpiece of 40 Days for Life is a focused, 40-day, non-stop, round-the-clock prayer vigil outside a single Planned Parenthood center or other abortion facility in your community,” the organization’s website explains. The 40-day campaign, which coincides with Lent, began on Ash Wednesday (February 22) and ends on April 2.

Noting the campaign’s impact, German Catholic weekly Die Tagespost reported Friday:

In Germany, “40 Days for Life” has also targeted counseling centers for pregnant women, which issue certificates that entitle pregnant women and doctors to carry out prenatal infanticide with impunity under the applicable legal regulations. Abortion practices and counseling centers in Frankfurt am Main, Munich, Pforzheim and Stuttgart are affected.

The Germany’s state-run DW TV reported Saturday:

The German government is looking to stop protesters blocking access to abortion facilities and counseling centers. It comes amid efforts to decriminalize abortion in Germany.

Germany’s family minister, Lisa Paus, has vowed to introduce legislation to stop anti-abortion activists from blocking access to abortion facilities, she told the Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland (RND) media group on Thursday.

The comments from Paus, a member of the Greens, come as anti-abortion activists planned a “40 days for life” protest campaign in front of counseling centers and medical centers in the 40 days of Lent ahead before Easter.

“Women must have unhindered access to counseling services and facilities that perform abortions,” Paus told RND.

She described so-called “vigil” protests as “violations and unacceptable attacks on women’s extremely personal decision.”

“The German government will counter this with legal measures,” the minister said.

Protesters targeting counseling centers The protests, modeled on an international Christian movement from the United States, aim to close down abortion centers through vigils, prayer and fasting.

The action comes as the center-left German coalition government moves forward with its plans to decriminalize abortion — a plan set out at the very beginning of its term.

Currently, abortion is illegal in Germany, but women and their doctors do not face penalties if the pregnancy poses a health risk to the woman or in cases of rape. There is also a loophole under which an abortion may be carried out within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy (14 weeks since the last period) after mandatory counseling.

The German government is smearing pro-life Christian activists as bullies who are blocking pregnant women from accessing abortion clinics.

Germany’s “Minister of Family Affairs Lisa Paus is planning a law to give pregnant women, who want to have an abortion, unrestricted access to counseling centers and medical clinics. She is responding to protests announced by anti-abortion activists,” German public broadcaster MDR reported. “In coming weeks, opponents of abortion seek to protest more intensely against abortions,” the media outlet feared.

An estimated 100,000 unborn babies are aborted in German each year. This coincides with the German political establishment’s efforts to portray unregulated mass-migration from Muslim-majority Middle East and North Africa as a solution for the country’s aging and declining population.

    German government controlled print, television and radio news agencies place the socialists and Marxist green party on the “center-left” political spectrum. And frame the 40 day campaign as “internationalist” in tone and “American” in nature.

    The Christians are highly capable networkers and organizers – a characteristic trait that unnerves tribal neo-bolsheviks. The socialists know they must ban and censor their spiritual and political rivals or risk loss of power.

Keep making yourselves obsolete. Would be long and there will no longer be a German culture.

Makes sense because it is the home of the original Dr. Mengele.

Those Christ-i-cans need to act up more. Their protests would be fine if they were only “mostly peaceful.”

I don’t follow – are there abortions there or not? There’s no place to protest if they don’t have abortions.

As to blocking people, that’s already illegal probably, without reference to abortion.

Going to another country with different restrictions is what most do, e.g. France to Holland for a longer time period. It’s written into TV scripts to show ambivalence by boarding and then unboarding the train.

    Read the article. There are abortions, until 14 weeks, after counseling. Hence they’re also praying outside the counseling centers where women go to sit through a pro-forma counseling session and get their license to have their babies killed.

    What’s not made clear in the article is whether they are in fact blocking access. If they are, then that’s wrong and the government is right to stop it. If they’re not then that should have been stated in the article as an established fact, rather than merely indirectly insinuated.

      Abortion is illegal in Germany like Germans have freedom of speech. Not really.

      Insinuation seems to be a favorite tactic of the leftist, corporatist press.

      Ironclaw in reply to Milhouse. | March 6, 2023 at 3:36 pm

      Who determines what is blocking access? After all, it is considered too much of an impediment in most places to actually SHOW the woman an ultrasound that they’re going to take anyhow for billing purposes. Not to bar entry or physically stop anything, but simply to show her the life inside her.

      Danny in reply to Milhouse. | March 6, 2023 at 6:15 pm

      The article is written by a professional, and what it doesn’t mention blocking access.

      It is the same as the DOJ policy here, more Americanization of Europe.

Germany already bans political speech of certain kinds. A totalitarian mindset even if it’s against totalitarians.

German lefties morphed into National Socialists so quickly I hardly noticed.

The National Socialist were never right wing. They were nationalist vs internationalist socialists.

    Hitler stated that the NSDAP were socialists. Lenin.. also…communism was socialism in a hurry.

Only 7 percent of Germans are observant Christians.

What do you call a living human being who prevents other living human beings from being born? A dog in a manger.

“There are men in the world of so snarling, malevolent, and ill-natured a disposition, that they will even punish themselves, rather than put forth a finger to serve any one. It gives them a malignant kind of pleasure to have it in their power to cause trouble and vexation to others, whenever they have an opportunity of doing so; and could they have their will, they would shut out the light and warmth of the sun, and suffer the fruits of the earth to rot upon it, provided they could see those about them unhappy; and in thus taking delight in other people’s miseries, it of course follows that they are their own tormentors. These characters, in common life, are diabolical and detestable; but the evils they inflict, are only like a drop to the ocean, when compared to those which men of the same stamp shed abroad in the world, when, in an evil hour, they happen to be exalted to govern the affairs of a nation. Then, indeed, their baleful influence is felt in every direction: they may be termed fiends in human shape; for, as far as they are able, they thwart the benevolent intentions of Omnipotence, and the very breath of their nostrils seems to blast the happiness of mankind.” ~ Author unknown

German reproductive rate has been falling for a long time, way below replacement levels last time.It takes 2.1 pregnancies per woman to maintain a stable population, and German rate some years ago was 0.91.
That is why Merkel let in millions of young Muslim men…workers are needed but Germans have intercourse only for pleasure, rarely to make babies.
Merkel as Chancellor was head of the Christian Democratic Party, a grotesque irony. Nothing Christian about murdering the unborn!

Could we drop our ideological crusade yet? This is the “free world” concept we are fighting for with our tax dollars and our trillions in military spending.
