Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill said that the Russian Orthodox Church supports abortion from the system of compulsory medical insurance (OMS). He said this in an interview with RIA Novosti.
Between two evils. Why midwives against a ban on abortion
“Well, because nobody helps, for example, alcoholics and drug addicts to buy alcohol and drugs at the expense of some insurance?! There is no such, because it is evil and harmful. And here cover General insurance abortion”, – quotes Agency the words of the Patriarch.
According to the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church, people must return to the understanding that abortion is a “sin” and “abuse against woman”. He noted that, in adopting the confessions, I realized that there are no women that do not be worried about abortion as “the hardest moment in my life.”
Earlier the Patriarch had signed the petition to ban abortions in Russia.
