Pro-Life Russian "Propaganda" Saves Babies' Lives!

Good news for a change! According to OrthoChristian.com, the number of abortions in Russia has dropped by nearly two-thirds since 2000.

In 2000, there were 2,138,000 recorded abortions in Russia, and in 2017—779,999.

“That’s a very serious decline—63.5%,” Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova noted.

Moreover, the number of Russians who condemn abortion has tripled in 20 years, from 12 to 35%. 


REMNANT COMMENT: Maybe all this has something to do with all this...


To all those who'll now predictably jump to dismiss this as a lot of propagandistic rot, let me just add this: I. Don't. Care! 

If Christian symbolism has become powerful enough in Russia to induce the state to exploit it for political gain, I say: Slava Bogu! 

If even a century of atheism has failed to tear out Mother Russia's Christian soul to such an extent that pretending to be Christian now wins elections over there, I say: Slava Bogu!

If Putin believes that posing as a Christian will cause him to be more beloved by his people and more feared by the brainless, soulless, heartless walking dead of the New World Order amassing on his borders, I say Slava Bogu!

A world drunk on atheistic secularism desperately needs the example of political leaders at the very least going through the motions of believing in God...even if it is nothing more than window dressing. Everybody wins, and we'll just have to wait for history to tell us if Putin really meant it or not. I hope and pray that he does. But even if he doesn't: Bring it on, Vlad, and Slava Bogu!
