Fetus in Germany: The Fetus Protection Law of 12.13.1990
International Journal of Bioethics. 1992 Jun: 3(2): 85-93.
The "Fetus Protection Law" (Embryonenschutzgesetz ESchG) regulates the abusive use of reproductive techniques, the use of human embryos and the choice of sex. The Bundestag has singled out certain practices as being abusive, prohibited them and put criminal sanctions on them. Individual exemptions from criminal prosecution are made in favour of the surrogate mother who is to be the target of an assisted procreation and the foster-father. The ESchG represents a snapshot of current views on current practices in reproductive medicine. And therefore the ESchG will be rendered obsolete by newly created reproductive technologies if legislation does not adapt the law to these changes.
