Nazi Germany was not pro-choice, but they were not against abortion either. The policies of Adolf Hitler of racial superiority were carried out by abortions mandated on non-Aryan women.

In Nazi Germany, abortion resulted in the death penalty for Aryan women, but was forced upon other "inferior" members of society. Abortion played a prominent part in Nazi eugenics, "cleansing" those seen as undesirable. The Nazis believed the woman's body belonged to the state, and they would decide whether a pregnancy would be carried out. Jews, Gypsies, and other groups would be killed if they did not carry out a state-mandated abortion.
