Two bare-breasted women staged a protest inside the Giessen district court building on Friday, during a hearing for the appeal of Dr. Kristina Hanel, who has been accused of promoting abortion.
Protesters were dragged outside the courthouse where they were met with applause. "It cannot be illegal any more, the legal situation must change, the law is from 1872, it's enough.
We live in 2018," - said the protester. Dr. Kristina Hanel was accused of promoting abortion on her website where she wrote that her practice offers the procedure and allegedly put a price for it. She was ordered to pay a €6000 fine ($7000). The charge has spurred debate in Germany over whether she was advertising abortion, or simply providing information for those who need it.
