MOSCOW, Dec 1 (LSN)  Citing Health Ministry figures, Interfax news agency reported Sunday that approximately 2.5 million abortions were committed in Russia in 1997. The figures also indicated that two out of every three women who have their children aborted suffer from health complications as a result.  The situation is pathetic considering 70 per cent of babies conceived are killed by abortion and this in a country where the number of abortions is said to have fallen by 25 per cent in the past four years.
