Sample text

There were 24,981 abortions in 1992 (1,389 per 1,000 live births), although that figure was down from about 36,000 a decade earlier. Most women who have abortions are married. Nearly half of all marriages end in divorce. In recent years, a greater number of people have begun living together instead of marrying. Such couples account for 17 percent of all births in the country. The primary cause of death is cardiovascular diseases, accounting for about 64 percent of all deaths in the mid-1990s. Cancer and accidents account for a large share as well.

Karl Vaino, the Russified Estonian leader of the Estonian Commu­ nist Party at the time, was particularly hostile toward dissent of any kind. The Pursuit of Independence, 1985-91 The dawning of glasnost (see Glossary) and perestroika (see Glossary) in the Soviet Union initiated a period of liberaliza­ tion from which the dying superpower would never recover. Estonia seized on this opportunity in 1987, beginning with pub­ lic protests against a phosphorus-mining project proposed by the central government that would have seriously damaged the country's environment.
