Russian church reiterates opposition to surrogacy

Moscow, July 12 (Interfax) - Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia appealed to the Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin with a request to support the bill banning the services of surrogate mothers for foreign citizens.

The document was submitted to the State Duma deputies on June 11.

In his address to the head of the government, the patriarch notes that the practice of using Russian surrogate mothers by foreigners has caused a number of deaths of newborn children intended for foreign "customers".

"I do not think that the ban on surrogacy for foreigners, which is illegal in most developed and many developing countries, will in any way infringe on the right of foreign citizens to receive medical care on the territory of Russia. Such "assistance" is currently being provided contrary to the goal of saving the people of Russia, proclaimed by Russian President Vladimir Putin as "the highest national priority," the patriarch stressed in a letter published by the website of the Russian Orthodox Church.

According to Patriarch Kirill, the adoption of the draft law "will contribute to improving the demographic situation in Russia, will put a limit on the exploitation of the reproductive potential of Russian women by foreign states in order to reproduce their population, and will also limit crimes in this area that have signs of child trafficking."


  1. I suspect this is a "for every thousand hacking at the leaves of evil..." situation at best. Russia culture/society has vert high abortion rates, low church attendance, etc. Hard to believe surrogacy for foreigners really rises all that high in their list of decadent symptoms of a decadent culture. If I were Kirill would I resist the temptation to play the nationalism card? Possibly not, but he ain't no St. John Chrysostom that's fur sur.

    1. At least +Kirill believes in his country and its people. Americans are taught that they and their children don't deserve their own country, so they just need to demographically age out.
