CWN Editor's Note: The co-leader of the “Synodal Path” promoted by the German bishops’ conference has said that “a nationwide provision of the medical intervention of abortion must be ensured.”

Irme Stetter-Karp, the president of the Central Committee of German Catholics—an organization that has co-sponsored the Synodal Path—said that abortion should not be considered a “regular intervention,” but should be available as an option. She lamented: “This is not the case at present because gynecological care is lacking in rural areas in particular.”
