At the Congress of Commissioners for Children’s Rights yesterday, December 11, the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation presented a new project in defense of the unborn that will award those who lead the fight against abortion in a wide range of fields, reports

The award is designed to motivate people to speak out about how they stand in defense of life and against abortion.

“This prize will be awarded to those activists, each in his own sphere, be it politics, social activities, medicine, business-society, journalism, or art, who are not ashamed to say that they speak out in defense of life, they speak out for the most vulnerable Russians, who should be defended by their own mothers, but, unfortunately, the principles of good and evil in society have changed and now we have to talk about it from the highest platforms,” commented Natalia Moskvitina, the General Director of the Women for Life Foundation.

The initiative was supported by the Commissioner for Children’s Rights for the President of the Russian Federation Anna Kuznetsova. “They are saving children’s lives—what could be a more complete and valuable task than the protection of children?” Kuznetsova commented.

The awardees will be given a badge made of white gold with an imprint of a child’s palm and the inscription, “Save the person inside of you.”

The overall purpose of the awards is to increase public recognition of citizens’ achievements in protecting the lives of the unborn and to draw the attention of society and Russian public authorities to the problem of abortion and the defense of the family, motherhood, and the lives of children before birth.

The objectives of the award are to identify and encourage those who make significant personal contributions to the development of the defense of the unborn, to create an additional form of support and encouragement for active representatives of civil society, and to inform the Russian public about the existing problems with protecting children’s lives and with motherhood in general.
