A little something from

Two million abortions are performed in Russia every year, with only 1.5 million children actually being born.

The quality of abortions performed is often very low and the women’s health is often at risk.

Moreover, badly performed surgeries kill every third patient and leave many infertile for the rest of their lives.

More than 650,000 women die trying to abort each year.

There are more than 6.5 million infertile women in Russia today.

Russia is the only nation in the world where abortions consistently outnumbered live births by a ratio of about 2 to 1.

In 1970, for example, there were 1.9 million births and 4.8 million abortions.

Today, with more access to real contraceptives, that number has decreased:

For every live birth there are between 1.3 and 1.5 abortions, depending on the statistics you look at.

That would mean that around 1.6 million woman died in 1970 alone.

Ah, but abortion is legal in Russia and thus safe.
