Daily Mail: A Chinese woman has revealed she was dragged from her home in the middle of the night and forced to have an abortion, three months before her child was due to be born.

Liu Xinwen, 33, and her husband Zhou Guoqiang were left devastated after the mother-of-one was pulled from her bed and taken to hospital to be injected with an abortion-inducing drug.

The forced abortion is due to China’s strict one-baby policy, introduced in 1979 to keep the country’s population under control – the couple already have a son.

The coupleclaim that they were awoken at 4am last week after their door was kicked down and two dozen officials from the Shandong Province Family Planning Commission forced their way into their home.

Mr. Zhou told Sky News how he was held down on the sofa while his terrified wife was taken away to the  hospital. He then spent a desperate five hours trying to find out where Liu Xinwen had been taken as officials refused to tell  him.

When he eventually found his wife at the People’s Hospital of Fangzi District in Weifang City, he arrived just  minutes after the injection had been administered. ‘My wife was lying in bed. I asked her: ‘Have  you been injected?’ She said ‘yes’. I asked if the baby was still  moving.’ She said ‘not much,’ he told Sky News. ‘After that, I didn’t want my wife to see my crying. I went outside.’

The baby died in her womb and was delivered a day later – a horrific photo shows the foetus in an orange bucket next to Liu  Xinwen curled up on the hospital bed. It was then the couple discovered they had  been due to have a little boy, a younger brother for their son Zhou Junfeng, 10. A sobbing Liu Xinwen told of her grief at aborting her baby saying, ‘I miss him.’

‘I didn’t get to see him. I would be even more upset if I had seen him,’ she said.

Mr. Zhou claims his wife was forced to sign papers which said she had agreed to the abortion. He said that when she refused she was told if  she did not co-operate her husband would be arrested and she would be left with nothing.

She told Sky News that after her son was born she had a contraceptive coil inserted, a procedure proscribed by China. She said it must have failed and she discovered she was expecting a second child when she was four months into the  pregnancy.

The couple decided against informing the authorities as they feared a forced abortion and instead hoped to pay a fine after the birth – this is sometimes acceptable in parts of China.

It is not clear how authorities found out  Liu Xinwen was pregnant. The Chinese Embassy in London told Sky News they were looking into the case.

In July a man stabbed to death two government workers in China after they told him they couldn’t register his fourth child. They had told the man they were unable to record the birth because he had not paid a fine for breaching  China’s family planning laws.

The official Xinhua News Agency, said staff at the Dongxing City Family  Planning Bureau – which comes under Fangchenggang  city – had refused to  register the man’s fourth child for a hukou, or resident’s certificate,  because he hadn’t paid a social compensation fee. The fine is levied on parents who break  family planning laws and can be up to 10 times a family’s annual income. A child without a hukou faces problems registering for education, health care and government benefits.

Known to many as the one-child policy, China’s actual rules are complicated. The government limits most urban couples to one child, and allows two children for rural families if their firstborn is a girl. Numerous other exceptions include looser  rules for minority families and a two-child limit for parents who are themselves both singletons.

Though the government credits the policy with preventing hundreds of millions of births and helping lift countless families out of poverty, it is reviled by many ordinary people. The strict limits have led to forced  abortions and sterilizations, even though such measures are illegal. Couples who flout the rules face hefty fines, seizure of their property and loss of their jobs.

Many demographers argue that the policy has worsened the country’s aging crisis by limiting the size of the young labor pool  that must support the large baby boom generation as it retires. They say it has contributed to the imbalanced sex ratio by encouraging families to abort baby girls, preferring to  try for a male heir.

Pure EVIL.

  1. China has been doing this since the one-child-per-couple policy began in 1979. Despite recent reports that the Communist Party government is reconsidering that draconian policy, this news shows “The more things change, the more things remain the same.”

    And of course, only deafening SILENCE from the supposed feminists of National Org for Women and the Left in general who say they care so much about women’s “right of privacy” to their bodies.

     
  2. And this is a government that the POS openly admires. If we wonder where Obama is taking America, look no further.

     
  3. At the same moment as these atrocities are being committed, the people of China are committing their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ in vast numbers.

     
  4. Left/liberals’ fantasyland…

     
  5. I am so glad we live in such a humane society here in the US (or at least I do when I am back stateside … if and when it happens) Here we would just have someone report that maybe they think someone might have smoked a joint in the home and they could just send in swat teams to shoot up the house and cause a miscarriage, or barring that, to just shoot the mother and declare that it was within departmental standards and the officer felt threatened and send him back to work with a pay raise and promotion.

    Having worked some in China, I have to say that at least they are honest about what they do.

     
  6. There is a reason our government has been collecting data on Americans.

    The communist left fully intends to exterminate conservatives – either in the womb, or via Obamacare later down the line.

    And don’t even try to tell me I’m being paranoid, as I understand totalitarians better than they understand themselves.
