The series of thematic programs Abortion. Reasons. Process. Consequences prepared by journalist Lidiya Puha (picture 48) voiced the opinions of experts in gynecology and psychiatry, stories of people who decided on abortion and those who, despite the unfavourable conditions, decided on childbirth; opinions of writers and scholars, young people who care about this issue, and those who actively promote the dissemination of true information about abortion and its consequences. The purpose of these programs is not to blame women who decided on abortion pressed by circumstances, other people or due to a simple ignorance of consequences of this operation, but to provide true information about a real murder of a little baby. So, if for the whole period when these programs were broadcasted, under the influence of the information heard any woman changed her mind and rejected the initial intention to have an abortion, or if any man would support a future mother of his child in her decision to give birth, then our work was not in vain.

Picture 54 History of the mother's holiday goes back to the ancient Roman Empire, where the First Christians on the fourth Sunday of the Lent gave their respect to Mother of Jesus Christ, who blessed her son for the crucifixion for the sake of salvation of the mankind.

This holiday brings our souls back to ancient traditions, for us to respect our mother throughout life. It is not accidental that this day is celebrated in May, as this month the Church dedicates to the Virgin Mary. Daily May thanksgiving services are traditional, glorifying Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ and protector of all Christians.
