Russia introduces bill that abortion is no longer a medical service...

Now  this is interesting....Russian govt . is considering a bill to disqualify abortion as a medical service and allow doctors to opt out of performing them. It would also hold doctors who perform abortions in the second half of pregnancy criminally responsible. Wow! The hope is to bring down the number of abortions in Russia which is now currently over 1 million a year. Obviously a concern is the loss of population in Russia which is not known for valuing life.  Some commenters ask if that means that currently doctors are being made to perform abortions against their will but another noted that in Russia life is cheap. Are we far behind. While their motive to the declining population this is still good news. Abortion should not be considered a medical treatment. And as the grandmother to two precious children adopted from glad they survived this mindset.

"The bill aims to create the conditions for a pregnant woman to opt for giving birth," Yelena Mizulina, head of the State Duma committee for family, women and children, said.
