“They (the conceived children – ed.) have no rights, they are not even able to say a word or to give a voice of cry in their defense. That is why it is a primary duty of Belarusian Christian democrats to protect the life of every child”, – states the proclamation of the session.

The proclamation states that in 2012-2014 Belarusian Christian democrats drafted the amendments for the Healthcare law, thousands of signatures were collected in their support and as a result almost all but two social indicators for abortions were abolished, doctors were allowed to deny performing abortions and medical institutions were obliged to conduct a pre-abortive psychological counselling.

“These results give us force and inspiration to continue our work in support of life and traditional family values”, – the proclamation reports.
