7-Month Pregnant Woman Forced Into Labor to Abort Unborn Baby

From ifeng & NetEase:

Shaanxi Zhenping County Family Planning Bureau forcibly aborts woman’s 7-month-old fetus

Recently, a forum post said that the Government of Zengjia Town, Zhenping County, Ankang City, Shaanxi Province illegally took a 7-month-pregnant woman into custody, and forcibly induced labor in order to abort her unborn child. The pregnant woman, Feng Jianmei from Ankang City, was unable to pay the fine of 40,000 RMB for breaking the One-Child Policy, and was illegally taken into custody by the local town government, and forced to abort her baby. At 3:00 am June 4th, 36 hours after Feng Jianmei was compelled to accept a labor inducing injection, the dead fetus was taken out of her abdomen. The 7-month fetus was almost fully developed. A week later, photos of Feng Jianmei and her dead fetus were uploaded onto the internet, causing a controversy. Without notifying the family, induced labor was forced upon the unborn child. With regards to this, the Population and Family Planning Bureau of Zhenping County responded on its official website saying that the woman’s pregnancy does not conform to the [One-Child] Policy; however, after repeated persuasion by the county government cadres, the pregnant woman finally agreed to terminate the pregnancy and received the pregnancy termination procedure at 3:40 pm, June 2nd.

Feng Jianmei told the reporter that because she could not afford the fine of 40,000 RMB for having a second child, at 9:00 am on June 2nd, she was escorted to a hospital by about 20 to 30 county government employees and at 3:00 pm that day was injected with “poisonous drugs” to induce labor.

She was violently treated on the way to the hospital because she continued to resist and when she was at the hospital, no family members were present to be with her. According to Feng Jianmei, on May 29th, Deng Jiyuan [Feng Jianmei’s husband] had left home and was on his way to Inner Mongolia. On May 30th, the county government began sending people over, in four-man four-hour shifts, to guard her. On June 1st, using the excuse of “going grocery shopping”, she escaped to Deng Jiyuan’s aunt’s place to go into hiding, but was ultimately found later that same evening. The county government employees then used bricks to block the door to prevent her from escaping. The next morning, they escorted her to the hospital.

Are you kidding me? Prolifers don't really care about saving babies they care about saving white babies! Why would they want to save asian babies?

That is heartbreaking! The loss of a baby no matter how is so sad. Even women who choose abortions must be sad too.

I don't see how it could be...

I don't either.  I was just wondering because that photo seems more than a bit odd.  If she was forced to abort the baby did they just leave the baby there, next to her, after she was cleaned up and such?

Talking out loud, I suppose.

I always do my very best to not buy anything made in China for reasons like this

I was thinking the same thing but I'm not familiar with the practices over there so I have no doubt it's possible. Frankly it's too horrifying to make sense of it.

 Shouldn't this be a fight for the pro-choice crowd as well as she was not given any choice?

Yes. Pro choice people already loudly decry stuff like this but people can't hear it over the war drums touting the evils of the wrong types of birth control.
