Abortion opponents held a massive rally near the government headquarters in Tbilisi on Sunday to urge the government to rate abortions as a crime.

The rally would have deteriorated into a mass fight between abortion opponents and supporters if police had not intervened.

The opponents argued that abortions are a murder. They held posters reading, “Abortions are Genocide!” “Embryos have Souls!”

Supporters disagreed and they carried their own posters, saying that criminal liability will not discourage women from having abortions and that sex education must be introduced at schools.

Significantly, most of the abortion opponents were young men and most of the supporters were young women.

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 - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. 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.
