Pro-life cooperation between Orthodox, Catholics in Russia

February 24, 2017

Orthodox and Catholics in Russia are working together to protect unborn human life, an official of Aid to the Church in Need said in an interview.

“Unfortunately, abortion is very prevalent in Russia,” said Peter Humeniuk. “This can be traced back to Soviet times, when many people considered abortion to be a sort of ‘normal’ form of family planning.”

“Unfortunately, this mentality is still deeply rooted in many people,” he continued. “There is a growing awareness that concrete deeds and initiatives need to be developed to help the women.”

    The leftists in the U.S. should follow the example of the Orthodox and Catholics in Russia: work together to resolve horrendous injustices. It is both immoral and insane that so much opposition to improved relations between the U.S. and the Christian people of Russia should be a hallmark of the Establishment Republican and Democrat mindset. Throw off the shackles of the last 8 years of division as transformation. Better to open the channels of communication than keep them closed for 8 more years
