For the last 15 years the population in Russia has decreased at a catastrophic rate. The mortality rate is almost twice as high as the birth rate. The Russian government is trying to encourage women to have more children, but so far the situation remains unchanged.

In today’s Russia 80% of the women have between 2 and 10 abortions in their life. Contraception such as the use of pills, condoms and abortions are legal in Russia and are for free up to 12 weeks of pregnancy. At the same time Russia has no space for sexual education in school programs. As a result after the end of Soviet era and start of ‘sexual revolution’ abortion became to be ‘younger’. More and more teenage girls are put in the situation, when they are having sex with zero information about contraception and responsibility. Late term abortions became to be one of the popular methods of solving the problems for the girls aged between from 14 to 18.

The Russian public have no idea that late term abortions occur, this topic is hidden and never discussed in the society. For the doctors Abortions are treated as an illness, their job is to treat the illness so the girls can return to their normal lives. For the first time ever our film Killing Girls gives the world an insight to the world of late term abortions for teenagers in Russia.
