GERMANY - Fewer and Fewer Clinics Performing Abortions

Arno Froese

Statistic: There are fewer and fewer clinics and practices in Germany that perform abortions. According to information from Germany’s National Bureau of Statistics in Wiesbaden, the number has decreased from 2,000 locations in 2003 to around 1,200 now, a decline of 40% in 15 years. Ulrich Montgomery of Hamburg, president of a national German doctor’s association, attributes this development to pressure from “militant opponents of abortion.” The political process must ensure that doctors aren’t defamed by ‘life protectors.’” He also reported in the ARD (public broadcast) magazine, Contrast that some doctors are being massively disturbed as they practice their profession.

Arno's commentary

We will continue to proclaim loudly: abortion is murder. To see a country like Germany, whose citizens have little to no interest in religion, and churches—whether Catholic or Protestant—losing members at an alarming rate, abortion nevertheless is decreasing.

Life begins at conception, and voluntarily and deliberately interrupting that life is simply denying a person the right to live. And that, in turn, is equal to murder.

David testifies in Psalm 139:16: “Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.”
