I heard Vladimir Putin favors abortion.

Putin is pro-choice. In 2017, Putin stated his pro-choice position on abortion. “In the modern world, the decision is up to the woman herself,” the Russian president said in a press conference. As reported on Fox News, Putin later “affirmed that women have a limited ‘right’ to terminate their pregnancies.” In December of 2023, Putin vetoed a bill that would outlaw private abortion clinics stating “…the rights and freedom of women should be respected.” Putin’s pro-choice stance has been reported in Western media such as Fortune and Fox News, it has been reported domestically in Russia in TASS, the Russian news agency, and in foreign media such as NDTV, the Indian news agency.
