|oh god, that is just so bloody horrific and I don't think anyone in their right mind, pro-choice or pro-life, would say otherwise. How could someone torture a little child like that? or an adult for that matter, but to do that to a child...Well you'd have to be seriously twisted.|
|forced abortion in china is a huge, and sickening problem.|
agreed. This story is horrible. How anyone could do anything like that to .A.N.Y.O.N.E. At all is disgusting!!
indeed... These doctors don't even care how far along a woman is in her pregnancy either... And to tear a potential child away from a wanting mother is just heartbreaking. They don't tell the young woman what they're doing, they just whisk her away and forcibly abort her fetus.
In china, for those who don't totally know, you are only allowed one child if your firstborn is male, or two, if the firstborn is female. Because of this, many second-born female babies are abandoned, especially in the rural areas. Also in rural areas, birth control is not widely available, and families are often a little larger than they "legally" should be. Task forces from the chinese government swoop down on rural villages, find out who's kid is whose, and then forcibly take young pregnant women whose current pregnancy is going to break the rule, and abort the child.
i've read quiet a few things about what they are doing but is it true that they try to bribe and pay the families that don't break the "child limit" rule but restrict assistance and money to those that do break it? It so sad to hear about the things that go on and know that there really isn't anything you can do to help them.

oh my god, do you mean you have really seen these things or you have seen them on television? If you saw those babies 'in real life', how did you stop yourself fom picking them up and looking after them? Were there too many? God, .I knew human rights were dire in .China but that is just awful!

|yes I mean I have really seen them I was in hunan in the early 90's it is so hard not to pick them up and help them but the minute you touch them you are commiting a criminal offence which is punishable by custodial sentence.
wow, that must have been so tough for you. I'd find it excruciating to have to walk past a dying animal let alone a tiny human being.
may I ask what you were doing there? Was it charity work? Just curious, sorry for being nosy!
