More Pro Life glimmers of hope

Russia will not be able to repair nearly a century of Communist damage in a few years but it is making progress, and decidedly so.  The pro-life sentiment has been steadily growing over there and we should not fail to notice.

Pro-life opponents of abortion will hold the “They Could Have Gone to School” event on September 14 to mark the start of the academic new year. The event will be held in 34 cities throughout Russia, including Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ekaterinburg, Kazan, Russia, Krasnoyarsk, Tyumen, Krasnodar, Kirov, Nizhny Novgorod, Novosibirsk, Omsk, and Orenburg, reports RIA-Novosti.
“Members of the all-Russian movement For Life! will try to draw public attention to the fact that Russia loses the equivalent of two major schools’ worth of students every day in the country’s abortion clinics,” the movement’s press service reported.
“During the event, activists will display children’s shoes on city squares, symbolizing the daily number of abortions in individual regions and localities. Organizers plan to put out 2,000 pairs of children’s shoes in the capital on the square in Sokolniki Park, which corresponds to the daily number of abortions in the country. Volunteers are currently collecting shoes from Muscovites and residents of the Moscow region,” For Life! reports.
According to the organizers, the shoes are designed to “visualize the dry statistics of abortion.” The shoes will then be given to poor families.
Over the course of two and a half years, another program, “Save a Life,” which works with more than 140 psychologists and social workers in 86 cities throughout Russia, has managed to prevent 7,000 abortions by women with financial problems. 65,000 in all have received help from the program’s various facets. Activists believe that the state and society have enough resources to help such families keep their babies.
