Andrei The BBC sniffs

The BBC has run with this story

The CEO of a Russian diary company has told female employees that if they get an abortion they will be fired
"Abortion is the murder of someone," he told the radio station, Ekho Moskvy. "We do not want to work with murderers."
In addition
Vassili Boiko-Veliki, president of Russkoe Moloko, said staff married in a civil ceremony had until 14 October to undertake a religious wedding.
What the BBC omits is that the marriage ruling only applies to those employees baptized into the Orthodox faith.

And more importantly the BBC also omits that the Patriarchy doesn't agree with this stance calling it Pharisaical and reminding Mr Boiko-Veliki of the woman taken in Adultery
"Let he who is without sin cast the first stone "
Archpriest Vladimir Vigilyansky of the Patriarchal press service said that it was not Orthodox to apply administrative measures to sin.

Another thing omitted by the BBC is that Vassili Boiko-Veliki is putting his money where his mouth is and will pay an employee who does fall pregnant for the first year of the child's life.

The ideas are right, it is just their implementation that are a little off.
