Russia is a dying nation because the Russian people refuse to reproduce and have some of the highest abortion rates on Earth. They are in the literal sense being replaced by people from Central Asia who are migrating in search of work, as they tend to have families. In response to this, the Russian Orthodox Patriarch has demanded an end to the legalization of abortion in Russia in the hopes that, according to his estimates, the population declines could be reversed and boosted by at least ten million in a decade.
The Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill at the Christmas parliamentary meetings in the Federation Council announced that it is necessary to achieve a significant reduction in the number of abortions in Russia.
He argued his position by the fact that it is necessary to solve the demographic problem in Russia.
“Increasing the population is one of the most important tasks of our state,” he said.
In this regard, Patriarch Kirill considers it necessary to limit the number of abortions that are done without medical indications.
The patriarch proposes not to prohibit abortions completely, but to exclude this service from the compulsory medical insurance, that is, women will be able to have an abortion only for a fee. Free abortions can only be done according to the doctor’s testimony.
Patriarch Kirill claims that this measure will allow in 10 years to increase the population by 10 million. (source)
