The Russian Federation has enacted a new law banning abortion advertising in the ongoing effort to stem the country's decline in population, according to Russian media. TR Novosti reports that the abortion ad ban is part of broader changes to Russia’s Federal Law on Advertising that include a ban on advertising campaigns offering free drug samples if these samples contain narcotic or psychotropic substances, and restrictions on the advertising of traditional "folk medicine" practices.
