Russian pro-life initiatives turning the tide: abortion rate is plummeting

(LifeSiteNews.com) — Russia’s ratio of aborted pregnancies to live births, once considered the highest in the world at almost 3 to 1, is swinging the other way with recent statistics showing there are now roughly two births for every abortion in Russia.

According to statistics on the official website Rosstat, in 1965 there were 1,990,520 live births and 5,463,300 reported abortions. Unofficial accounts have estimated that the true abortion rate could be as much as double that figure.

Since then, however, while births have marginally increased or decreased, the number of reported abortions has dropped consistently, with the latest figures available, for 2013, showing 1,901,182 live births and 880,000 abortions.
