SHAANXI, China—A trafficked baby boy was rescued Sunday in China’s Henan province, reported state-run Chinese media outlet Xinhua. He is one of 50 babies allegedly stolen and sold by obstetrician Zhang Suxia from a hospital in Shaanxi province.

 

On July 16, Zhang told the baby’s mother, Dong Wan, that her son had syphilis and hepatitis B and needed special care. She tricked the mother into signing custody release forms, then sold the boy to human traffickers for $3,500. When Dong Wan discovered the truth and spoke out, many other families stepped forward with similar stories about losing their newborns to Zhang.

 

Li Chunfu, a well-known Chinese doctor, said, “This doctor has low scruples—putting her personal interests above everything. She ignored morals, and the law. She lied to these families’ faces, completely not caring about their suffering. She took advantage of the patient-doctor bond and committed a criminal act.”

 

On Chinese microblogging site Sina Weibo, netizens reacted with rage and disgust. Weibo user Looking into the Cloud and Babble said,  “Doctors are stealing newborn babies. Principals are raping young students. Officers are hiring prostitutes. How did society’s morals reach rock bottom?”

 

Yet Sunday’s rescue reveals more than a series of tragic kidnappings. It is yet another example of China’s lack of a moral compass and its citizens’ desperate need for God. Without recognizing the intrinsic value of each human life, the Chinese government—and even its citizens—tear babies from their mother’s wombs, sell children across borders and strip hope from women’s lives.

 

Brian Lee, Executive Director of All Girls Allowed, said, “This is just the tip of the iceberg. Underneath this iceberg, there are at the very least 70,000 and up to 200,000 children trafficked every single year within China. Unfortunately, if you dig even deeper, you find that there is a moral bankruptcy in China. Policy alone cannot bring an end to these tragic cases: China’s people must change from the inside out. China must turn to Jesus.”   

 

All Girls Allowed (http://www.allgirlsallowed.org) was founded by Chai Ling in 2010 with a mission to display the love of Jesus by restoring life, value and dignity to girls and mothers in China and to reveal the injustice of the One-Child Policy.  “In Jesus’ Name, Simply Love Her.”
