The FDP, the Left and the Greens want to sue the Federal Constitutional Court against the reformed criminal law paragraph 219a on the so-called advertising ban for abortions. The FDP is in charge and is working in coordination with the other two parliamentary groups to have an expert opinion drawn up and to find an authorized representative, as FDP parliamentary group vice Stephan Thomae said.
25 percent of the Members of the Bundestag required. The three political groups jointly achieve this quorum. The Giessen-based jurist Arthur Kreuzer is being discussed as reviewer. "I think lawsuit is promising," said Kreuzer to the RND newspapers . “The law does not seem constitutionally tenable to me.”
At the end of February, the Bundestag reached the coalition compromise on the so-called advertising ban for Abortions agreed. The reform provides for doctors, hospitals and other institutions to be able to inform them that they are performing abortions. A list kept by the German Medical Association provides information on the specific offers of the respective doctors. afp
