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.

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?”

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.
