VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN: Chinese Woman Died After Having Four Consecutive Abortions In The Span of One Year!

VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN: Chinese Woman Died After Having Four Consecutive Abortions In The Span of One Year!

Viral4Real: Apparently, her husband wanted a son and demanded that she have an abortion every time she produces a girl.

A long time before the 1979 one-child policy, sex ratio was already unbalanced between boys and girls, due to a high number of infanticides. Families prefer sons, and daughters are often aborted. In addition to that, girls are more likely to be neglected during their childhood and receive less medical treatments than boys. After the one-child policy was implemented, the sex ratio has rapidly decreased, with more men than women. However, in some parts of rural China, having a second child is allowed when the first one is a girl.

Life News: Four baby girls and their mother reportedly are dead in China after a man allegedly forced his wife to have four sex-selection abortions.

Sex-selection abortions and a preference for sons has caused a population crisis in China. Coupled with China’s oppressive population control measures, which limit families to one or two children, the country is missing millions of girls to abortion and infanticide.

Daily Mail: According to a report on Huanqiu.com, an affiliation to People’s Daily Online, the mother, named Yueyue, gave birth to a baby girl in Shengangzhen of Wuhu, Anhui Province.

However, her husband, whose name has not been revealed, wished for a boy.

So the couple started trying for another baby.

When Yueyue fell pregnant, her husband requested her to undergo an ultra-sound scan to identify the gender of the unborn baby.

And when the scan showed Yueyue was carrying a girl, Yueyue’s husband forced her to have an abortion.

The process repeated four times in one year as Yueyue’s husband was determined to have a son.

Trending News Portal:  In China, abortion is legal and the Chinese Government even provides services for interested women. It is supposedly one of their many solutions to control their exploding population problem.

Although abortions can be performed safely under proper medical supervision, they still take a heavy toll on a woman’s body. Getting 4 of them in such a relatively short period of time no doubt caused a tremendous amount of of damage to this unfortunate woman’s body.

Daily Mail: Yueyue’s health deteriorated and she was left bedridden.

Shockingly, instead of taking care of his wife, the husband sent Yueyue a divorce proposal.

The report said Yueyue had no choice but to agree to the divorce.

Yueyue took her 170,000 yuan (£19,208 or more than $25,000) divorce settlement to a hospital in Shanghai to seek medical attention.

The doctors failed to save her and she passed away.

Pictures have emerged showing Yueyue’s mother and her other family members brought Yueyue’s bone ashes to her ex-husband’s home on July 17 to seek justice for the Yueyue.

Yueyue’s mother was said to have suffered a stroke because of Yueyue’s death and was left wheelchair-bound.

The family also brought Yueyue’s four-year-old daughter.

Yueyue’s ex-husband refused to come out to meet the family and hid in his neighbour’s house.

Onlookers gathered around the house and the police were called.

According to the report, the man was planning to buy a new car to marry another woman.

It’s understood that the case is being investigated by the police.

Trending Portal: Many netizens were fuming in rage about what happened. They posted their angry reactions online saying “He would not get a son even if he marries 18 wives.” and “Does he think he is an emperor? What’s so good to have a son?”

 

 

THE CHRISTIAN POST: 

Sparked by fears that the country’s economic growth could be affected by an aging population, China ended its one-child policy and allowed married couples to have two children.The one-child policy instituted in the late 1970s had, according to The New York Times, created a culture of resentment and “brutal intrusions” that included many forced abortions and staggering fines especially in the rural areas of China.

It further skewed the male to female ratio in the country of 1.3 billion people to such a point where rural families especially would resort to infanticide to ensure they have a son in some cases.

In 2016, the first full year of China’s two-child policy, the number of babies born increased by 1.31 million or 7.9 percent over the previous year to 17.86 million.

Information released by the State Department in 2016 said China performs about 23 million abortions annually.

“The government imposed a coercive birth-limitation policy that, despite lifting one-child-per-family restrictions, denied women the right to decide the number of their children and in some cases resulted in forced abortions (sometimes at advanced stages of pregnancy),” the report said.

State-controlled media in China said abortions had declined in the country due to the introduction of the two-child policy but a culture that encourages abortions is still prevalent.

“As in prior years, population control policy continued to rely on social pressure, education, propaganda, and economic penalties as well as on measures such as mandatory pregnancy examinations and coercive abortions and sterilizations,” the State Department said.

“Those found to have a pregnancy in violation of the law or those who helped another to evade state controls could face punitive measures, such as onerous fines, job loss, demotion, and loss of promotion opportunity.”

Last July,2016, a state-funded news outlet said officials in Guangdong Province threatened a remarried couple with termination of their employment unless the wife had an abortion. Both individuals were government employees and each had a child from a prior marriage.

shainghaiist: Images circulating on microblog platforms of a forced abortion inflicted upon a woman named Feng Jianmei seven months into her pregnancy in Ankang, Shaanxi province have left netizens outraged at the methods employed by local family planning officials.

From a report by Radio Free Asia:

Speaking from a local hospital in her home county of Zhenping, Feng Jianmei said she had been forced to have the procedure by local family planning bureau officials after she failed to pay a 40,000 yuan fine for an “excess birth” under China’s draconian population control policies.Feng, speaking briefly from her hospital bed, said that she hadn’t consented to the procedure.

“I have just given an interview with a reporter. My head really hurts…No, it wasn’t [with my consent.] It was forced. That’s what happened.”

Feng’s husband Deng Jiyuan said his wife was taken away on June 2 by officials from the local family planning bureau and given an injection at the Zhenping county hospital without her consent. Two days later, she lost the baby.

A photograph taken at the time and later posted on the Tianwang rights website’s discussion forum showed Feng lying in a hospital bed with her dead baby beside her.

“They gave her the injection on June 2, and the child was stillborn at 3:00 a.m. on the morning of June 4,” Deng said. “They gave the injection directly into the child’s head.”
“She didn’t agree to this…They grabbed her hand and forced her to sign,” he said.

Deng said he and Feng had agreed to pay a fine of 40,000 yuan levied by officials as a fine for the unapproved birth, but that they had forced her abortion anyway.

The Global Times weighs in, arguing “Forced late-term abortions must not be tolerated”:

With the development of society, expectations of the family planning policy as well as Chinese people’s awareness of human rights are changing. Local governments should have a broader horizon and not cross various bottom lines when carrying out their work. China has made achievements in protecting human rights; many humanitarian ideas have been introduced into China through globalization and the Internet. Much pressure has been put on grass-roots governments and forced improvements in social governance.Local governments should turn this pressure into a driving force and realize improvements in their working style. Take the Ankang case as an example. What the officials have done goes against policy, no matter what their reasons are, and has stirred public opinion and damaged the image of the family planning policy.

Some hold that the family planning policy can only be implemented through tough measures. This kind of thinking is unacceptable today. Society has undergone tremendous changes in the last three decades. The desire for more children is decreasing. Cases of late-term pregnancy cannot be terminated through force. This is a requirement of the social moral standards of today.

LifeNews:

In China, women face all kinds of abuses related to abortion and pregnancy. Under the country’s population control measures, women are forced to abort their unborn babies up to nine months of pregnancy, forcibly sterilized or implanted with long-lasting contraceptive devices.

Many of the unborn babies who are aborted are girls. In China, the birth ratio was an unnatural 115.88 boys to 100 girls in 2014, according to research by the Charlotte Lozier Institute.

Experts estimate that as many as 200 million girls are missing world-wide because they were aborted based on their sex. Even research from the United Nations, which is no champion of unborn babies’ rights, points to sex-selection abortions as a huge discrimination problem against women and girls.

The situation in China demonstrates how oppressive abortion is to women as well as their unborn babies. Women and babies deserve support, but society often offers them — or demands of them — death instead. As a result, women suffer and sometimes die along with their unborn babies as a result of abortions. Violence only destroys. Women and babies deserve so much better.
