Prolife advances in Russia
by David Bahnsen
An article on a Protestant (!) site notes:

A bill is on the table (and is considered likely to pass) that would grant the same legal rights to a fetus that children currently have. The birth rate has risen from 9.1 per 1,000 to 9.8 per 1,000.

And who is beyond all this, you ask?

The Russian Orthodox Church.

...I simply want to point out that it is the Russian Orthodox Church who is fighting this battle. After 70 years of declared atheism being the official religion of the land, the Russian Orthodox Church was not buried, was not left for dead, and was not content to lie in a bed of apathy and discontent. Instead, these baptized members of the covenant have chosen to fight a battle – one of the most important battles in their culture.
