Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova on the Fight for Abortion Rights in Russia
Abortion remains legal in Russia, but it’s obvious that anti-abortion—and anti-contraception, and anti-choice—forces are on the rise. As for sex education, I remember being told, „Your future child will resemble the man who took your virginity. Your body remembers that first man, so be careful who you choose!“ at the only „sex education“ lecture in my entire school career. In two hours the lecturer never once uttered the words sex or contraception. That was in 2005.
