Eine junge Frau ist in Köln vergewaltigt worden. Eine Notärztin schickte die 25-Jährige zur Beweissicherung in Krankenhäuser der katholischen Trägerschaft. Doch die Vergewaltigte wurde abgewiesen – aus „ethischen und theologischen Gründen“.

Summary:

-25 year old woman goes partying in cologne

-wakes up a day later in the park

-ER suspects rape and sends her for rape kit to catholic hospital

-catholic hospital has new policy of denying rape kits, because they would have give counsel about possible pregnancy and give out emergency contraceptives

-doctors who do not follow this policy might get fired without further notice (usually it takes pretty long to fire somebody in Germany)

-A speaker of the archbishopricy (SP) said catholic hospitals do not give out emergency contraceptives because it collides with the catholic church’s ethics and moral/theological principles

-Christian Democratic Union’s Congresswoman says it’s a scandal and all hospitals should help victims of rape

And to make it worse the emergency contraceptive was already prescribed.
