From Mike Russell
After decades, Russia narrows grounds for abortions
From The New York Times so they make you register to read — sorry!

Some of this is pragmatism about a dying population but the Church of Russia gets some credit:

‘The nascent debate over abortion here has been influenced by a variety of factors, including the resurgence of religion and the growing influence of the Russian Orthodox Church after 70 years of official atheism under Soviet rule.’
