Zwar wird die Strafbarkeit in §219 wieder aufgehoben, aber der Tatbestand bleibt bestehen. Die Diskussion um den §218 hat an Lautstärke abgenommen, aber sie wird immer aktuell bleiben. Wenn guy nur an das Jahr 1999 denkt, in dem der Streit um den Verbleib der katholischen Beratungsstellen auf seinem Höhepunkt struggle, als der Papst Johannes Paul II. verlangte, dass die katholischen Schwangerschaftskonfliktberatungsstellen keine Beratungs- scheine mehr ausstellen sollten.

In den Augen des Papstes bedeutet die Ausstellung des Scheines Beihilfe zur Tötung, da Gott in jede befruchtete Eizelle eine unsterbliche Seele legt, die schon als Mensch zu betrachten ist.
Ich wollte mit dieser Ausarbeitung einen kleinen Einblick in die verschiedenen Seiten der Abtreibung zu geben, da meiner Meinung nach die Diskussion niemals aufhören darf, allein zum Schutz der Ungeborenen. Die rechtliche, medizinische, sowie auch die Seite der Frau kommen hierin zum Tragen.
