The Kurultai (legislative assembly) of Bashkortostan and deputies of the State Duma Elvira Aitkulova and Rimma Utyasheva (United Russia, both from Bashkiria) introduced a bill to the parliament to promote the “childfree” ideology; (childlessness) among minors, follows from the data of the legislative support system.
The authors of the project proposed to amend Article 5 of the Federal Law “On the protection of children from information harmful to their health and development.” This article now lists the types of information that causes harm, namely information that incites children to commit life-threatening acts, violence, the use of drugs, cigarettes, alcohol, etc., as well as denying family values or promoting homosexuality.
The explanatory note to the document states that information about the “childfree” ideology should be classified as prohibited for distribution among children, since it forms “the basis of destructive social behavior based on the voluntary refusal to have children, which runs counter to traditional family values and the state policy of the Russian Federation.”
“Under the current conditions, the propaganda of conscious childlessness, carried out by activists of the “childfree” movement, leads to the degradation of public institutions, the washing out of traditional value orientations, creates circumstances for the depopulation of the population,” — said in the note.
On the day the bill was registered in the State Duma, the topic «childfree» was raised during the Eastern Economic Forum by Deputy Plenipotentiary Representative in the Far East Grigory Kuranov. He told schoolchildren and students about the “golden billion” (of which 200 million «rich», the rest «servants») and about the expectation of the «epidemic of infertility».
