New Forced Abortion in Shandong, China
[Last month, a forced abortion took place in the coastal province of Shandong, China. Because the victim’s family has since agreed to a compromise with the government, All Girls Allowed will not publicize any real names or addresses in order to protect their identity.]

 

SHANDONG, China – In April 2013, a group of Family Planning officials ambushed a man and his pregnant wife (Mr. and Mrs. T) while they were returning home after visiting her relatives. Eight of the officials took Mrs. T’s husband to a small, undisclosed hotel while the remaining six officials forced Mrs. T into a van. Since they had been traveling with their three-year-old son, the officials left the boy in the care of a stranger while they detained the parents. Mr. T asked to see an arrest warrant, but the officials ignored his request and confiscated his cell phone. With the couple separated from each other, the officials tried to force Mr. T to sign an agreement to abort the baby, but Mr. T refused to sign it.

 

While Mr. T was detained in the hotel, his wife was taken to a local hospital. They injected poison through a needle into her uterus without any signature of consent. They also forced the hospital doctors to abort the baby without first doing any medical check-up on the mother.  After the forced abortion, most of the officials left the hospital, with only a few local workers remaining to keep watch over her.

 

Three hours after the forced abortion, Mr. T was released and was permitted to see his wife. His wife had already been quite sick before the forced abortion occurred, but since suffering this trauma, she has experienced bouts of mental illness. At times, she has episodes of insanity. When their son was returned to them, he was so scared by his abandonment that he contracted a high fever and a serious cough, enough so to be hospitalized. The forced abortion occurred in the province of Shandong, the home of blind attorney Chen Guangcheng, who has been fighting to protect women from forced abortion and forced sterilization. A number of forced abortion cases have surfaced in Shandong in recent months, marking it as perhaps the most dangerous place in China for mothers.

 

Earlier this year, All Girls Allowed reported a late-term forced abortion from which the victim, Feng Jianmei, never fully recovered. Additionally, she has yet to receive the full promised compensation from the local government. In similar cases, All Girls Allowed workers communicating with forced abortion victims have discovered that the local government will invariably use money to silence victims and their families. Tragically, money can do nothing to assuage the pain of these forced abortions, which follows these victims their entire lives. We call on brothers and sisters everywhere to pray for these victims, to ask the Lord to heal them both spiritually and physically.

 

All Girls Allowed has also found that government officials are in danger of losing their jobs if they are unable to meet a particular quota of abortions in their area. On March 19, 2013, Shen Hongxia, a 42-year-old woman, died following a forced sterilization surgery. It was later discovered that the local Family Planning Director had earlier been fired because his unit had failed to meet the abortion quota set by higher authorities. This firing had scared the local Family Planning officials into executing a campaign of persecution against pregnant mothers, forcing them to undergo abortions or sterilization surgeries. We can see from this case the great fear that the brutal Family Planning Policy casts in people’s hearts, both officials and ordinary citizens.

 

Chai Ling, Founder of All Girls Allowed, called upon the new leadership of China, Chairman Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Li Keqiang, to pay attention to these brutal Family Planning cases as they step into their positions of authority. Chairman Xi recently was quoted as saying, “People’s desires to have a good life is what we are working towards.” The brutal One-Child Policy and the Family Planning officials’ merciless actions have destroyed the “good life” of Mrs. T, Feng Jianmei, Shen Hongxia, Zhang Wenfang, and millions of other families. The Bible says that God created humans and commanded them to “be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.” (Genesis 1:28) Jesus Christ loves children: “Let the little children come to me…for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)  The Bible also warns those who do evil, “God will give to each person according to what he has done.” (Romans 2:6) At the same time, the Lord also says, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay.” (Romans 12:19)  We hope and pray that Chinese government officials will experience the fear of God’s judgment and put an end to the brutal persecution of mothers by abolishing the One-Child Policy.

 

We ask Christians everywhere to pray for Mr. and Mrs. T’s family.  Let us ask the Lord to heal their wounds and come into Jesus’ everlasting arms, to receive eternal life and joy.  We pray these things in Jesus’ almighty name, amen!

Today, the Chinese author Mo Yan won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Mo Yan, who said he was “overjoyed and scared” at winning the prize, is an outspoken critic of the One-Child Policy.

 

Mr. Mo’s Nobel biography notes that his most recent work, Wa, highlights the harsh reality of the coercive family planning in China. It tells the story of a rural gynecologist who delivers babies and also performs abortions in her role as an enforcer of the One-Child Policy.
