Russia has long held the inglorious title of abortion capital of the world, with consistently the most terminations per woman of child-bearing-age of any nation. This grisly habit was established back in Soviet times, when the shimmering workers' paradise found simply snuffing-out the unborn less expensive than supplying birth-control in effective quantities.
ah, the glorious efficiencies of central-planning!
And while any red-blooded male can somewhat empathize with those who couldn't resist impregnating beautiful Russian women, the fact is that this deeply-damaged society holds the value of life in about the same esteem as most would a used Kleenex- a calloused and warped moral framework that could only be the (enduring) result of the harsh, godless existence as was the USSR.
Now just yesterday a Russian fisherman who thought he had stumbled across some useful 55-gallon-type water barrels up in a Ural Mountain forest also discovered 248 fetuses still foot-tagged and preserved in formaldehyde -nice, huh
There are still some actual human beings in Russia though, i.e. the Russian Orthodox Church, which stands in staunch opposition to abortion. The procedure was last banned from 1936-1954 in the USSR but is currently legal in Russia for up to twelve weeks (22 in case of rape). Despite some limitations, it's the rate that's breathtaking... surely a preview of what's in store for our country if we allow 'socially progressive' zealots to continue on their quest to make Planned Parenthood clinics more ubiquitous than Coke machines.
