admin | 06 March 2011

Moscow, March 2, Interfax – Public activists held a picket near a downtown Moscow clinic that practices abortions.

“Recently this clinic held a blasphemous action – Christmas discounts on abortions,” the picket organizers told Interfax-Religion on Wednesday.

The action lasted three hours, its participants read the Holy Scripture, demonstrated passers-by documentary photos of children killed in abortions, spread printed materials and collected signatures at the address to the country’s leaders demanding to limit the number of abortions in Russia.

Several dozens of people participated in the picket organized by the international anti-abortion movement Family, Love, Motherland. Members of the Movement against murdering children, activists of the Orthodox missionary school at the Synodal Missionary Department, parishioners of St.Thomas Church in Kantemirovskaya were among them.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
