Russian Children’s Rights Commissioner suggests funding cuts for abortion clinics
May 29, 2020
During her annual performance report, Russia’s Children’s Rights Commissioner, Anna Kuznetsova, proposed reducing funding for abortion clinics.
According to Kuznetsova, the amount of funding allocated to abortion clinics should be in inverse proportion to the number of abortions. “A clinic should be interested in saving the child, and not in providing services for the artificial termination of pregnancy,” she said.
Kuznetsova also suggested limiting the sale of medical abortion drugs at pharmacies.
The commissioner’s report has already been sent to the Kremlin.
Children’s Rights Commissioner Anna Kuznetsova has consistently advocated for raising the birth rate in Russia and is known for her pro-life views. On May 28, she announced that she had given birth to her seventh child.
