CNA: Russian city observes ‘week without abortion’ as country battles population crisis

To call this story heartbreaking is not nearly enough.

Russia’s abortion rate is among the highest in the world, with nearly 70 percent of pregnancies ending in an abortion. The Western Europe abortion rate is about 12 per 1,000 women per year, while in Russia that figure is 54 per 1,000, according to U.N. records on abortion rates.

In 2004 there were 100,000 more abortions than births.

Further, about 10 to 15 percent of abortions in Russia have complications, leaving about 8 percent of women sterile.

And people, the Legislative and Executive branches, are even considering the F.O.C.A. which will bring more of THIS here?

May God help and forgive us all! Saint Michael the Archangel, protect us!
