Russia (MNN) — Abortion restrictions could be coming to Russia, providing more opportunties to share the Gospel.

By September 2, 2003

(Russia)–The Russian government is talking about restricting late term abortions in that country. Many people are hailing the news, as abortion is used as contraception there. Buckner Orphan Care helps care for orphans in Russia, and was recently given accreditation for adoptions. Buckner’s Amy Norton says she supports the move, but Christians will have to get more involved. “It means a significant number of children that will be born and that just means that we need to be there and the churches need to be there to support the orphanages in an even more significant way with more children coming in to them.” Norton says sharing the Gospel is their top goal. “That’s the most important and number one thing, is that the Gospel is shared whether it’s in delivery of a pair of shoes, whether in it our staff when they’re in those orphanages, or whether it’s a child being placed in a Christian family.”
