The Chinese Communist Party's Forced Abortions and Infanticide
(Minghui.org) For a woman, getting pregnant and bearing a new life is a wonderful event. Welcoming the new baby is also exciting for the family. However, in China, many women are forced to abort the child and there are even times when infants are killed after being born. Recently many such incidents of forced abortions under the CCP's rule have been exposed on the Internet.
A seven-month pregnant woman in Shanxi Province had to undergo a forced abortion because she could not afford the 40,000 yuan birth-planning fee. The picture of the dead fetus lying beside his mother was truly sad.
In a Shandong Province incident, labor was induced early, although the fetus was already nine-months-old. The father heard the baby's cry outside the room and hurriedly called his family to prepare clothes for the baby. However, when he entered the room after making the phone call, he saw his child had been drowned in a water bucket. The devastated father posted the picture of his child's dead body, drowned in water, on the Internet. This is considered murder, even under the current Chinese law!
After the exposure of this incident, many Chinese people condemned the Party. In fact, such cruel forced abortions and killing of infants have been going on as one of the means to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. The methods are even more cruel.
Woman Thrown Repeatedly from Great Height Causing Abortion; Husband Forced to Watch
At Wanjia Forced Labor Camp in Heilongjiang Province, in order to force a six or seven month pregnant practitioner to give up her belief in “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” the guards tied her hands with a thick rope and attached the other end of the rope to a pulley on a beam. The guards kicked the stool on which she stood to make her hang in the air. The beam was three meters above the floor. When the guards let loose of the rope, she fell hard to the ground. Then, the guards repeated the same procedure several times, until she aborted the baby. She was in terrible pain. What's even more cruel was that they forced her husband to watch her suffer.
Doctor Strangles a Newborn
In 2003, practitioner Guo Wenyan, who was seven-months pregnant, and her husband were walking down the street. Suddenly, policemen from the Tiedong Police Station in Yinchuan City arrested her. She had been repeatedly arrested and detained in the past because of her firm belief in Falun Dafa. They took her to a hospital to abort the baby. They also forced her family to sign the document. The baby was crying after it was born. Guo's mother-in-law said, “We will take the baby home.” When the doctor heard this, he strangled the baby. Very quickly, the baby no longer made any sound. It had died.
Undergoing Abortion with Policemen Watching
On May 25, 2002, practitioner Geng Juying from Luozhuang Town, Bo village of Mengzhou City, Henan Province was arrested by policemen from Mengzhou City, the 610 Office and the public Security Bureau. In order to sentence this pregnant practitioner to forced labor, they induced her labor. During the process, several policemen were watching. They said sarcastically, “Aren't you beautiful? We just want to watch you do this.” Geng Juying had her abortion with several men watching her.
Fetus Removed After Being Dismembered
Zhang Hanyun from Hanzhong City, Shanxi Province had been unable to get pregnant for five years due to amenorrhea. Six months after she started practicing Falun Gong, her menstruation became normal and she became pregnant. However, in March of 2001 when she was almost due, she was arrested and taken to a brainwashing center by staff from the Hanzhong 610 Office. When they found out that she was about to give birth, they took her to a hospital where the baby was aborted. However, the large fetus was difficult for her to deliver normally. The doctors then dismembered the fetus inside her and removed it.
Such incidents of cruelly torturing pregnant practitioners have been taking place since the beginning of the persecution of Falun Gong. China has 5,000 years of culture. In traditional Chinese culture, it is taught that people should “Respect the elderly as if they are your own parents and care for the young children as if they are your own children.” Buddhism stresses “saving one life accounts for enormous virtue” and teaches people to be “compassionate.” However, in the eyes of the CCP, the lives of people in the general population are worthless. For the so-called “Party's needs” and “the Party's interest,” they kill many people. They are granted immunity under the “law.” They murder many people with impunity and with a so-called “legal” basis. In particular, the forced abortions during the past thirty years and the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners have affected countless families. When the innocent lives of our next generation are murdered by the CCP, when the belief in “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” is persecuted in a society, is there still hope for such a regime?
