German review

THE GERMAN parliament voted to lift abortion restrictions in the former West Germany after an all-day session this week, bringing the law in the two halves of the country into line.

More than 100 deputies in the Bonn assembly debated for more than 14 hours before passing the measure, which gives women the final say on whether or not they wish to have an abortion during the first three months of pregnancy after a mandatory counselling session.

Only minutes before the vote, the deputies threw out a proposal backed by Chancellor Helmut Kohl's Christian Democratic Party, which would have made abortion illegal without a doctor's certificate that a woman was at risk if she went ahead with the birth.
