It can be hoped that this may be Russia's defining moment on abortion. Abortion was brought to Russia by the Bolsheviks decades ago and, since then, over a million children are killed each year in their mother's womb.
But 100,000 people have now signed a petition to stop this. The story is here:
Under Russian law any initiative that garners that many petitioners automatically gets heard by a committee of the Duma.
No matter which way you look at it this is most encouraging news, and it gives an even sharper perspective on current world events. Countries dripping with the blood of the unborn have been coalescing around America, another nation swimming in blood, in its political maneuvers against Russia. This potentially devastating blow against abortion is yet another reason why Russia is so hated by the usual suspects. Even as we write US warships are heading to the Black Sea with their "defensive"(sic) weapons on board.
Russia has deep and terrible wounds that need to be healed. It has been lying in rubble for nearly a century. But green shoots seem to be sprouting from its scorched earth, as we have seen by recent initiatives by the government and its president to encourage larger families, push back against the sodomite onslaught, protect fellow Christians in Syria and elsewhere, and now this. May God and Our Lady bless them.
Russia is beginning to fight the fight everyone else has long abandoned.
No wonder the Satanic forces are lining up against her.
