Crime against humanity: Chinese government thugs forcibly abort a child at 7 months.

Chinese and American human rights groups exposed how the woman, Feng Jianmei, was beaten and dragged into a vehicle by a group of family planning officials while her husband, Deng Jiyuan, was out working. The officials asked for RMB 40,000 in fines from Feng Jianmei’s family and, when they did not receive the money, they forcibly aborted Feng at seven months, laying the body of her aborted baby next to her in the bed (pictured).

Surprising and little known facts about Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng and his position on abortion

In reality, the portrayal of Chen as a pro-life activist is misguided. Chen has never protested against abortion on principle. What Chen has spent years fighting against is forced abortion by village officials on local women in rural China, which is actually against Chinese law. During Chen’s two major public appearances since arriving in the U.S., he has not mentioned abortion at all, instead focusing his attention on promoting the “rule of law” in China. His friend, Bob Fu, a Chinese-born Christian who is the head of China Aid (a Texas-based non-profit working towards religious freedom in China), has written that if abortion is not forced, then Chen is “not necessarily against it.”

Rights activist Chen opposes forced abortion, but not abortion on principle

In fact, the evidence suggests that Chen wants to use Chinese law to protect pregnant women from being forced into abortions by local officials under the pressure of China’s One-Child Policy. Forced abortion and abortion are two entirely different topics—just as people can abhor rape (i.e., forced sex) but not sex, someone like Chen who opposes forced abortion is not necessarily against abortion in all its forms.

The Club of Rome: The analyses and models behind China’s population control came from the West.

The analyses and models behind China’s population control in its early days came from the West. They were inspired by the reports of the Club of Rome, a think tank that unites Heads of States, UN bureaucrats, diplomats, scientists and business leaders who claim they “share a common concern for the future of humanity and the planet.”

The Nuremberg Nazi war crimes tribunal properly construed forced abortion as a crime against humanity – so what about China?

…nothing in human history compares to the magnitude of China’s 33 year assault on women and children.

Today in China, rather than being given maternal care, pregnant women without birth allowed permits are hunted down and forcibly aborted. They are mocked, belittled and humiliated. There are no single moms in China—except those who somehow evade the family planning cadres and conceal their pregnancy. For over three decades, brothers and sisters have been illegal; a mother has absolutely no right to protect her unborn baby from state sponsored violence.

Is VP Joe Biden really unaware that Communist China is one of the most vicious regimes on the planet?

Mr. Biden was on the Foreign Relations Committee for many years. Did he miss all of the hearings on this subject? The reports by Amnesty International? Did he miss the Washington Post story about the imprisonment of blind human-rights activist Chen Guangcheng, who served more than four years in ghastly conditions for protesting the brutality of the one-child policy? The Post story mentioned 10,000 forced sterilizations performed in Puning City. Chen revealed that in Linyi County, Shandong Province, alone, there were 130,000 forced abortions in 2005. Is the vice president truly unaware that children born in defiance of the one-child policy are not permitted to enroll in school or see a doctor?

But many, many Chinese babies don’t even get that far. They are ripped from their struggling mothers’ wombs by government goons. The London Sunday Times reported, for example, the trauma of Zhang Linla, the mother of a four-year-old daughter who became pregnant again without permission. “Six days before the due date, 10 strong strangers came to my house, forced me into a truck then took me to a family planning clinic, where the doctor gave me an injection [of a drug to induce labor]. The child began struggling in my womb and one of these scum even kicked me in the abdomen. Then the baby came out and they threw it into a rubbish bin. I could even see it was still moving.”

China and the War on Girls through Female Infanticide

RONT ROYAL, VA. (P.R.I.) – My introduction to female infanticide came in China in 1980.  The one-child policy had begun, and parents desperate to ensure that their only offspring would be a son took to drowning or suffocating their newborn daughters.  The advent of ultrasound technology in the mid-eighties allowed Chinese to learn the sex of their children before birth, with predictable results.  Sex-selective abortion supplanted, in part at least, female infanticide.

The ratio of newborn boys to girls in China, which should be about 106 to 100, has been climbing steadily ever since.  Overall, there are now 117 boys born for every 100 girls, with some provinces posting ratios as high as 130 to 100.  This means that as many as one in four little girls are killed before or upon birth.

“Murder on a massive scale”

CHINA, January 20, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – By funneling tens of millions of dollars to organizations such as the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), which support China’s brutal One Child Policy, the United States and other Western countries are “accomplices” to “murder on a massive scale,” said the Director of China Aid in an interview this week.

CHINA’S THIRTY YEARS WAR AGAINST ITS OWN PEOPLE

Population Research Institute
Weekly Briefing 10/05/2010, Vol. 12, No. 27
pop.org
by Steve Mosher, President PRI

I was surprised when Beijing decided to celebrate (!) the thirtieth anniversary of the One-Child Policy this week.   I thought, quite frankly, that the declaration of a national day of mourning would have been more appropriate.

But I was even more taken aback when the head of China’s National Population and Family Planning Commission, a woman named Li Bin, announced that China would continue to enforce this same Draconian policy for “decades” to come.

Decades?   This is, after all, a policy that has led to a slaughter of the innocents of Biblical proportions. Hundreds of millions of
women have been forcibly aborted and sterilized.   Homes have been razed, livestock confiscated, and exorbitant fines levied.
In all, 400 million people are missing from the Chinese population as a result of the one-child policy.   Like previous Chinese
Communist Party-orchestrated disasters such as the Great Leap Forward, or the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, this policy, too, has been a disaster for the Chinese people.

I should know.  I was in China when the one-child policy began, 30 years ago.

What I saw then, living in an agricultural commune in rural Guangdong, rivals anything that happened in Nazi Germany.
One day in 1980 several hundred young mothers, all pregnant with second or higher-order children, were ordered to attend
population control meetings.   There they were told that they would all have to abort their pregnancies.  Those who refused
were arrested for the “crime” of being pregnant and locked up until they, too, buckled under the pressure and submitted to
an abortion.

At that point they were taken to the local medical clinic and given a lethal injection into their uterus.   If their bodies did
not expel their dead or dying babies within two days, they were subjected to a cesarean section abortion.   Most horrific
of all, babies born alive were killed by means of an injection of formaldehyde into the “soft spot” on the crown of their heads.
Those few women who managed to escape arrest and had their babies in secret were assessed heavy fines.

Everything that I witnessed then, from the forced abortions of women in the third-trimester of pregnancy to government-
sanctioned infanticide, is still happening now.  Those women who manage to avoid the dragnet by going into hiding are now
subjected to even heavier fines, which currently run three to five times the family’s annual income.  Those who can’t pay this
huge amount have had their homes destroyed and their possessions and livestock confiscated.

Moreover, such a child remains a “black child,” that is, one who does not exist in the eyes of the state.   Such children are
nonpersons, turned away from the government clinic if they fall ill, barred from attending a government school of any kind, and not considered for any kind of government employment later in life.   They are not allowed to marry or start families of their own, since the government has decreed that “black children” will not be allowed to reproduce.   One generation of illegals is enough.

The Chinese government, supported by foreign population control zealots, believe that its program should be held up as
a population control role model for the rest of the world.  In reality, it should be roundly condemned for its widespread
and systematic violations of human rights, especially the rights of women.

But even those who shy away from defending China’s brutal repression of its population sometimes argue in favor of the
one-child policy on other grounds.   China is often held up by the UN Population Fund, for example-as a positive example
of a county that has been able to slow population growth rates dramatically, and which has achieved prosperity as a result.
But to praise the country that has become the ugly poster child of forced abortion and coerced sterilization for the economic
growth that these inhuman policies have supposedly generated is not only inconsistent, but also wrong.

China is clearly worse off economically as a result of eliminating from its population 400 million of the most productive and
enterprising people the world has ever known.   China’s astonishing economic performance-its annual GDP growth over the past three decades is close to 10%-is not only a tribute to the tremendous work ethic of the Chinese people, but also has
led to labor shortages in China’s coastal provinces.   Every baby born in China today is a net economic asset.   How
much more would China have been able to achieve with an even larger population?

Some would argue that adding people would overburden the Chinese environment, but the PRC has been an ecological
disaster zone from the time of Mao’s forced-pace industrialization programs in the 1950s.  The same remains
true today, as the Chinese leadership remains far more concerned about the economic growth rate than about ensuring
that the populace has clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. Witness the government-mandated shutdown of all
factories in the Beijing region in the days leading up to the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.   Once the athletes (and the
foreign journalists) were gone, the smokestacks resumed spewing out their plumes of black smoke.  Nothing had
changed.   This is to say that the sorry state of China’s environment has far more to do with misguided political decisions, and the lack of public accountability for the actions of both government and privately owned businesses, than it does with the number of people.

The one-child policy has been a social disaster as well.  Two generations of Chinese have grown up with no siblings, no
cousins, and no aunts and uncles.  This radical shrinking of the boundaries of the family is, in itself, is a great poverty.
Then there is a problem of female infanticide and sex selective abortion, which has eliminated tens of millions of little girls
from the population, leaving an equal number of young men without brides to marry.   Prostitution, homosexuality, and
gang activity are on the rise as a result.

Finally, there is the demographic snare that the one-child policy has set for the Chinese people.   Because of the radical cutback in births, the Chinese population is aging faster than any human population in human history.  The worker/dependency ratio is unsustainable.   How can an only child support two parents and four grandparents in retirement?   I am afraid that this will lead the Chinese government to embark upon a “one-grandparent
policy” in years to come, in which tens of millions of elderly Chinese will be urged to accept euthanasia, perhaps in return
for their only grandchild being allowed to go to college. Forced abortion and forced euthanasia are two sides of the same
debased coin.

For all its failings, I do think that the one-child policy has served one important purpose as far as the Chinese Communist Party is concerned: It has helped to maintain the muscular rigor of the one-party dictatorship that rules China.   China is a police state, after all, and such a state, to remain strong, must have something to police.   Economic controls have been loosened over the past 30 years, so control over other aspects of life must be tightened.  The brutal one-child policy is one consequence of such a system’s relentless drive for control over people’s lives.

Do I think that the Chinese Communist Party really intends to continue, as Li Bin asserts, its one-child policy “decades” into
the future?   Absolutely.   And it will certainly never admit that the policy was a mistake.   One-party dictatorships don’t make mistakes of such consequence-at least if they want to stay in power.

China Sees 13 Million Abortions Annually, Most Done on Young Single Women

chinaBeijing, China (LifeNews.com) — China sees as many as 13 million abortions done on an annual basis, official state media are reporting today. The information is rare as the nation’s family planning agency, which endorses the country’s one-child policy that involves forced abortions, rarely releases such information to the public.

The China Daily newspaper said the abortions are mostly done on single women who do not know much about the use of contraception.

The number is likely higher as the total only includes abortions done in hospitals and does not include those abortions that occur in unregistered stand-alone centers.

The 13 million abortions annually also does not include the 10 million abortion drugs that are sold annually.
