Patriarch Kirill of Moscow called on women, instead of having an abortion, to give their children to the Church.
In fact, the Patriarch of Moscow stated that in this case, the Church will not hinder the future contact of mothers with their children. The statement was made today during a charity forum of the Russian Church.
“The Church is constantly referring to a terrible problem – the problem of abortion. We are a big country, we need to be more.
And there is no more effective way to influence demographics than to radically reduce the number of abortions. This is what the Church is asking for, “said the head of the Russian Church.
The Patriarch of Moscow also said that the state should take steps to address the issue.
