Audio: Family Confirms Death of Mother After Forced Abortion

YUYUE, Hubei, ChinaAll Girls Allowed was able this past weekend to reach the uncle of Zhang Ping, the mother who died of hemorraghic bleeding following a late-term forced abortion.  (Click here for the original report.)  In the phone conversation, which you can listen to below (in Chinese only), Zhang's uncle said that the situation was resolved, that the government had paid them 350,000 Chinese yuan ($57,080 USD) to compensate them for Zhang's death. He claimed that Zhang voluntarily submitted to a late-term abortion. However, Zhang's uncle also mentioned that their relatives were not given their jobs back, suggesting that perhaps some of Zhang Ping's relatives had lost their jobs because of her overquota pregnancy. Unfortunately, Zhang's uncle was not interested in sharing any more facts of the case and abruptly ended the conversation.

 

We at All Girls Allowed are concerned that "hush money" may have been used to cover up the truth about the death of a young 26-year-old mother. Unfortunately, she cannot speak for herself, and thus the truth may have been concealed. However, according to the original reporter who broke the story, new evidence suggests that corruption and greed may have been behind the tragic death of Zhang Ping, and the abortion may indeed have been forced:

 

  • Apparently, Zhang Ping and her husband were originally at the local county hospital for the late-term abortion.
  • However, they were called last-minute to a different location, to a clinic that had signed a contract with the local Deputy Police Director's wife.  It is suspected that this was in order to ensure that profits from the surgery went to this woman.
  • This clinic, where Zhang Ping's surgery took place, was poorly maintained and was not equipped to do late-term abortion surgeries.
  • After the bleeding began to occur, Family Planning Officials attempted to move Zhang back to the county hospital for treatment, but she died shorty after arriving.

 

Moreover, when combined with the understanding of Zhang's relatives having potentially lost their jobs (or not receiving a promised settlement), we believe that it is more than likely that Zhang Ping was at the very least coerced (through sanctions against her relatives) into considering a dangerous late-term abortion, and quite likely forced against her will.  The fact that such a complicated procedure took place in a run-down local clinic underscores the evil behind this chilling story.

 

We call on Yuyue's Police Department to conduct a criminal investigation into the death of this young woman, including an investigation of all communications about her case in the Ministry of Health and Family Planning.  Please join with us as we pray for justice to be served and for darkness to come into the light!

 

 

Report on May 28, 2013: Mother Dies after Late-Term Forced Abortion

 

Yuyue, Hubei -- On May 23, 2013, 26-year-old pregnant mother Zhang Ping was dragged to the local Family Planning Office (pictured above) in Yuyue, Hubei, for a forced abortion.  Despite being 6-months pregnant, the Family Planning Officials disregarded a national and provincial ban on late-term forced abortions and still went ahead with the forced surgery.  After the surgery, Ms. Zhang suffered a massive hemorrhage and died the following morning on May 24th.

 

Local Jiayu county officials are investigating this case as a "medical accident" and the Family Planning Office has been closed during the investigation.  Ms. Zhang's relatives surrounded the office in protest, but the county sent police officers to stop the protest.  There are no signs of a criminal investigation or criminal charges.

 

Please pray for this unfolding story, that All Girls Allowed would be able to get a hold of the victim's family and obtain more details, photos and even video evidence of this horrific forced abortion and murder.  Pray that the mainstream media would pick up this case, especially as it comes alongside the announcement of Two-Child Policy in Myanmar to restrict the growth of the Muslim population there.

There are many methods of contraception, so why did Hong Zhenzhen have to be sterilized?  In order to ensure the implementation of China’s One-Child Policy, many local family planning laws require women who have had a second child to be sterilized. If refused, the second child is denied citizenship, which in effect forces many women to be sterilized.  Hong Zhenzhen is just one of the millions of women who are forced to be sterilized.
