30% of Belarusian women do not inform men about abortion decision

Should Belarus prohibit abortion? This was the topic of the talk show What's Going On? on the RTR-Belarus on 9 October.

Larisa Martynova, board member of the NGO Family and Maternity Support Center "Matulia", psychologist:

We are psychologists who give pre-abortion consultations.

We represent a volunteer organization which, together with health care institutions, shall amend the law. And we have experience of talks with women. In particular, the situation is associated with men.

We are pleased to advise women when a spouse comes.

In addition, we say: "Next time we are waiting for you with your spouse." But I must say that half of women are in a difficult relationship with a husband or a child's father. And about 30%, in general, don't inform men about their decision or do not consider their opinion.
