RFA/Women Forced to Abort 中共“一胎制”导致非人化--强制堕胎
China's Forced Abortion 中国的“一胎制”与强制堕胎/视频
Friends grieve at the funeral of a 21-year-old Chinese woman who died following a forced abortion in February, 2009.
中共党朝的“一胎制”是中国专制文化与中国“非人化”（活死人）心态的重要组成部分。 毛泽东的“鼓励生育”与今天的“计划生育”都是同出一辙的，将人作为政府工具、政府包袱的邪恶文化心态的写照。胡锦涛对中共强行堕胎的否认只说明一个真实 -- 所有专制极权都撒谎。
Kai Chen's Words:
China's Party-Dynasty's "One Child Policy" leads to wide spread abuse of women, child abduction, human traffic and forced abortion. It leads to the formation of China's inhuman and inhumane modern culture. Mao's "policy of encouraging births for war" and today's "One Child Policy" come from the same place - viewing human beings as only tools or burdens for the government/collective. This is unadulterated evil, pure and simple. Hu's denial of China's forced abortion on women only shows one thing: All communist governments, all totalitarian regimes lie.
Women Forced to Abort
China's One-Child policy leads to widespread suffering and abuse.
Women's Rights Without Frontiers
Chinese authorities routinely force women to terminate “unauthorized” pregnancies despite President Hu Jintao's denial that the practice exists, experts say.
Hu's denial came at a meeting with Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the chairwoman of the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, when the Chinese leader made a state visit to the United States last month.
In a statement released following the meeting, Ros-Lehtinen said she had challenged Hu on a range of Chinese human rights abuses.
“Out of all the issues I raised, the only one which received a response from Mr. Hu was my statement urging the end of China’s forced abortion policy. I was astonished when he insisted that such a policy does not exist,” Ros-Lehtinen said.
Speaking in an interview, women’s rights advocate Reggie Littlejohn slammed Hu’s statement as “an absolutely appalling misrepresentation.”
“It is an undeniable fact that forced abortion occurs in China, and we have lots of evidence of this,” said Littlejohn, president of the California-based Women’s Rights Without Frontiers.
“At the provincial and at the local level, regulations say that ‘out-of-plan’ pregnancies shall be terminated,” Littlejohn said, referring to measures taken to enforce China’s strict One-Child policy limiting the number of allowable births.
“Women who have pregnancies out of plan are required to take ‘remedial measures,’ which is a euphemism for forced abortion," she added.
"So I just believe that [Hu's] statement was false and misleading."
In a case reported in October by RFA, a woman in the southern Chinese city of Amoy in Fujian province was detained in her 32nd week of pregnancy by local family planning officials, beaten, and forced to undergo an abortion.
Chinese netizens exposed the case on the microblogging site Twitter, calling for public attention to the fate of the pregnant woman, Xiao Aiying, and condemning the late-term abortion as “an execution.”
Xiao’s husband Luo Yanquan said in an interview that Xiao had been taken from their home late one night by local family planning cadres.
“She refused to go and insisted on waiting for me to be home, but they forced her to leave,” Luo said.
“They took her to the Street Committee Office and locked her up there, taking her cell phone away and barring anyone from visiting her. Several men beat her up, bruising her legs and feet. She was kept there for about 40 hours,” Luo added.
Luo said that Xiao was then taken to Amoy’s Siming Hospital, checked into a room in the obstetrics ward, and injected with drugs to induce an abortion.
“Neither my wife nor I signed an agreement,” Luos said. “But the cadres ‘approved’ and signed the paperwork and presented it to the hospital.”
“This was a forced abortion,” Luo said.
In a 2010 report, the U.S. Congressional-Executive Commission on China noted that local officials in China had continued during the year “to coerce women with unauthorized pregnancies to undergo abortions in both urban and rural areas across China’s major regions.”
Violators of China’s One-Child policy “are routinely punished with fines, and in some cases, subjected to forced sterilization, forced abortion, arbitrary detention, and torture,” the Commission added.
“China’s population planning policies in both their nature and implementation violate international human rights standards,” the Commission said.
