Russia Finally Loses Its Collective Mind

By Wyatt Earp | July 3, 2011

Russia wants placed on abortion ads. The irony; it burns.

Russian lawmakers, worried about a falling birth rate, passed a law on Friday that abortion advertisements must carry a health warning. Russia has one of the world’s highest abortion rates and cutting this could help it stem a demographic disaster that is looming as its population shrinks.

Under the new law approved by the lower house of parliament, 10 percent of the space used in abortion ads must carry a list of possible negative consequences for women, including infertility.

Um, maybe they can mention the negative consequences for the child, too?

    So, they are finally going to admit to things like have an abortion now and the next pregnancy you have and decide to carry to term will have risks such as:

    Cerebral Palsy
    Preterm/Very preterm birth
    Spontaneous Dilation of the cervix
    Cause future miscarriages
    Possibly require surgical procedures to even be able to get pregnant again

    Not to mention that the woman having the abortion killed a baby! Abortion – Legal infanticide.

    By the way, those risks I mentioned have been known since at least the 1960s.

    Kim – The only reason why they care now is because they are embroiled in a population crisis. No babies means no Russia.

    From the article: “It has said overcoming racism and taking in more migrants could help Russia boost its population.”

    Dear Russia, please call Mexico. And I know of some big decommissioned US Navy ships we can sell you for transporting your new citizens.

    It tells you something about a country when people are dying in the desert to get into one that kinda sorta doesn’t want them and another is hoping people will move there.

    And on that note, Happy Birthday America!!!
