KARLSRUHE, Germany, Oct 27 (LSN) – The German Constitutional Court ruled today to forbid Bavaria, the largely Catholic province of Germany, from restricting abortions. Government officials of the ruling Christian Social Union in Bavaria legislated that a doctor’s income from abortions could not exceed 25 per cent of his total income and that mothers must justify their decisions to kill their offspring.  The law was challenged mainly by two abortionists who perform two thirds of all abortions in the German province about 6,000 per year.
