“Just as nuclear weapons are banned so that planet Earth does not perish, so we must ban technologies that destroy… the natural ways to give birth,”
– – Russian lawmaker and anti gay activist Elena Mizulina
Elena Mizulina, author of the ‘Gay Propaganda’ bill that punishes those who spread information aimed at children that, “directed at forming nontraditional sexual setup” or promotes a “distorted understanding” that homosexuality and heterosexuality are “socially equivalent”, is now focusing her attention on another extremely pressing problem facing humanity: surrogacy.
According to Mizulina, giving birth to other people’s children “is a phenomenon threatening not only Russia, but humanity as a whole with extinction.”
Er, yes…because giving birth to more children adversely effects the size of the human population…
According to Buzzfeed, “Russia has one of the most liberal surrogacy laws in the world, which even allows women to give birth to others’ children for money….About 500 children are born to surrogate mothers in Russia each year, according to state media.”
