Book: 6 Million Abortions. How Communism Utilized Mass-Scale Abortion Exterminating Europe’s Fastest Growing Nation

​Book by Ivan Dikov, Founder & Publisher of

Europe’s once fastest growing nation, Bulgaria, has become the world’s fastest shrinking nation within decades – during which it was ruled over by communism.

As a result, the medium-sized European nation has suffered 6 – 8 million abortions, a number surpassing the number of its entire population.

The telling case of communist and post-communist Bulgaria discussed in detail in this book demonstrates that communism utilized mass-scale abortion at first in order to pursue its utopian goals, and then in order to cushion the blows of its failures.

Abortion figures from other ex-communist countries such as Romania and the former Soviet Union are even more staggering in absolute terms – but are identical in relative terms and render the same conclusions.

This book offers statistical data, anecdotal evidence, historical background information, personal experiences, and personal stories of women who had abortions under communism in order to reveal how dictatorial regimes, in this case totalitarian communist dictatorships, have used abortion as a tool to guarantee their own survival.

The former communist countries in Eastern Europe saw an explosion of abortions right after their respective regimes legalized abortion.

Because of the horrid transformation of their societies executed by the communists, countries such as Bulgaria have seen huge abortion rates drag on into the post-communist period, exacerbating their all-out demographic catastrophes caused by the communist rule, with low birth rates, high death rates, and gigantic emigration rates.

Even if abortion might not have been officially declared a policy tool by the communist regime, it certainly became one.

It was the ultimate communist tool to “free up” women so they can be ruthlessly exploited in the slave labor-like workforce of the regime, swelling the numbers of the working class;

To miraculously transform overnight a rural society into an industrialized urban society (whose cities and consumer products weren’t worthy of the name);

To crush once and for all the peasants, suspicious class enemies whose families gave birth to many children;

To repress individuals and families psychologically so nobody would ever doubt the domination of the party-ridden state;

To beat into the ground Christianity and any remnants of its traditions from the past 1,100 years that might have been preserved by the population;

To look on happily as the dwindling population growth posed smaller demands to the regime which had utterly failed in creating a much addvertised utopia but has succeeded in engineering an anti-utopia.

The communist regimes in Bulgaria and Eastern Europe were extremely “successful” in dehumanizing abortion – reducing it in the public mind to nothing more than a simple medical procedure.

The Bulgarian communist regime, not unlike its counterparts in Romania and the Soviet Union, toyed with an abortion ban once it realized that it had created a very precarious mass-abortion crisis.

Such bans did little to reduce the abortion rates but spurred a host of other horrible problems: avalanches of illegal abortions, maternal deaths, child abandonment, and even infant murders.

These bans were never enforced too strictly as the regimes seem to have realized that mass-scale abortion was the quick and easy fix reducing pressure that might have piled up on them because of their more overt failures.

This book is not pro-life or pro-choice but its message should be carefully considered by both the pro-life and pro-choice parties in the ongoing public debates on abortion in the United States and around the world.

Namely, that dictatorship regimes can utilize mass-scale abortion as a major policy tool: the former communist regimes in Eastern Europe have done so to a horrifying scale, engaging in what should be declared genocide, and creating a demographic apocalypse in Bulgaria and the rest of the region.
