“Orientation” on Effects of Abortion Ruling in America

Vienna (OTS) Sandra Szabo presents “Orientation” on Sunday, July 3, 2022 at 12.30 pm on ORF 2 with the following topics:

Abortion in America: Joy and protests after the ruling against abortion rights

In the United States, the Supreme Court last week overturned a liberal abortion law that had been in place for 49 years. As a result, ten states have already banned abortions, and access to legal abortions will be very difficult or even banned outright in half of US states. The three conservative justices sent by former US President Donald Trump were decisive in the decision. Donald Trump has won the votes of millions of evangelicals across the US by promising to appoint judges who will overturn abortion rights. How do you deal with judgement? How did they manage to expand their political influence to such an extent? What role does the Roman Catholic Church play in the fight against abortion rights in America? An ORF team was in the state of Mississippi – in what is known as the Bible Belt – and met with staunch opponents of abortion, evangelical pastors and women’s rights activists.

Deadline restriction in Austria: Bishop reminds immediate measures to “protect life”.

After the judgment of the US Supreme Court, this landmark judgment has become the subject of international debate. In Austria, the so-called “time limit restriction” has been in place for about 47 years – this means that abortion in the first trimester of pregnancy after consultation is possible and not punishable. A regulation introduced under Federal Chancellor Bruno Kreisky. For the then archbishop of Vienna, Cardinal Franz Koenig, the arrangement was an “open wound” from the start. “Orientation” spoke to Bishop Hermann Kledler, responsible for the Roman Catholic Church, about the matter. He had returned a few days earlier from the great Catholic “meeting of the world’s families” in Rome. According to Kledler, the Vatican is not “happy” about the US ruling – even though the Roman Catholic Church condemns abortions. A real, well-founded study of the complex topic is still necessary. And looking at Austria: many of the accompanying measures agreed or promised at the time have not yet been adequately implemented. Report: Class Chariot

Great success in need of improvement? Care reform provides answers and raises new questions

After weeks of reviewing the new bills, many observers agree that the legal framework for people care put forward by the government is an “important first step”. Financial incentives for nursing staff, expansion of skills for certain professional groups or simple professional recognition of foreign experts are planned. However, the distinction between nursing and care excludes much of the social care professions and often excludes home help and disability workers from the reported bonus payments, Diakonie criticizes. There are still no decisive new rules for nursing staff, who care for around 30,000 people at home as part of 24-hour care in Austria. The funding there should be increased from 550 to 680 euros, says Anna Barr, General Secretary of Caritas Austria. A fifth of people in need of care – fewer than you might think – are cared for in homes in Austria. An “orientation” group was in Diakonie’s Erdbergstraße housing communities: care level 3 and people who need more support and care live together in family-like groups. Home help and nursing staff work hand-in-hand here, but suddenly feel torn apart by the new law. Reporting by: Markus Marshallek
