A group of Orthodox Christian activists claim that they have gathered 100,000 signatures under a petition seeking to completely ban abortions in
– a number enough to make it a valid legislative initiative. Russia
In the near future all the documents will be submitted to the authorities and the activists will be waiting for an official reaction to their demands, a member of the Public Chamber, priest Aleksander Pelin was quoted as saying by the ITAR-TASS news agency.
The leader of the activists, Dmitriy Tsorionov elaborated on the initiative, and said that it seeks a complete legislative ban on all abortions, including those made on medical advice and on all abortive means of contraception, such as intrauterine devices and hormonal pills. Tsorionov said his group was not protesting against barrier contraceptives, such as condoms.
According to Russian Law any petition that gathers at least 100,000 signatures of support becomes a draft law and must be considered by parliament. The signatures must be gathered on the special government portal and come from registered Russian citizens. People can also vote against the initiatives on the same portal, but the votes against do not influence the documents’ movement, at least technically.

Meanwhile, though some restrictions have successfully been placed on abortion in this
Union, the main direction continues to be toward debauchery and apostasy. In education, for ensample, the corporate-backed, federal government-guided Common Core program is requiring pornographic books be read by students at various grade levels.
And this sexualization of children is no accident:
Now is the time for the South to consider and enact new ways to protect what remains of her Christian culture: nullification (town, county/parish, and state level), secession, kings, initiatives and referendums, and so forth.
May the Lord grant us time to repent.
