The right to choose under attack in the parliament of Ukraine! The proposed law would ban abortion and add a penalty for couples who do not have children.

Moreover, the initiative also includes a ban on the act of sex in the missionary position. An initiator of the bill said that the missionary position has been proven ineffective for conceiving children.

However, some activists argue that the inclusion of the anti-missionary law is only a diversion tactic to distract from the initiative’s real anti-choice purpose. Supporters of the proposed law in the Verkhovna Rada say that they support this initiative out of concern for Ukraine’s declining population and low fertility rate. However, it is clear that the initiative also has the intention of controlling women’s choices, for it has support from religious figures.
