Penza, 16 July 2015. PenzaNews. 105 children changed their mind on having an abortion after asking for medical and social help in the special departments under the healthcare institutions of the Penza region over the six months of 2015.
The departments in question received calls from 757 children considering abortion since the beginning of the year, the press service of the regional Ministry of Health informed PenzaNews agency.
“The gradual work in the Penza region helped halve the number of abortions over the last ten years,” the officials noted.
