The Public Chamber proposes to increase monthly allowances for pregnant women who have registered at an early date to one subsistence minimum. It is proposed to extend it to all expectant mothers who have this first, third and subsequent pregnancy.

The proposal is aimed at reducing the number of abortions in the country. Payments are offered to all expectant mothers, regardless of their income level, RIA Novosti reports.

The proposal was made by the chairman of the Commission on demography, protection of family, children and traditional values of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation Sergey Rybalchenko.

In addition to increasing benefits, he also suggests lowering the retirement age for fathers with many children. It is proposed to reduce the retirement age for them by a year for each child, but not more than five years.

In addition, it is proposed to allow mothers with many children to look after other people's children, acting as a kindergarten teacher. At the same time, the presence of pedagogical education in this case is not mandatory. It is also proposed to exempt large families from kindergarten fees for the third and subsequent children.

The proposals were sent to the Government.
