Top Story -Forced abortion victim in Communist China speaks out: The Chinese Communist Party’s hideous “one child” policy continues to be one of the few things to bring pro-lifers and pro-choicers together in outrage. Liu Xinwen is the latest victim, who told of her plight to Sky News. Here, via the Epoch Times, is the chilling account:
Liu, 33, was due to give birth in around three months, she told Sky News in an exclusive interview. However, last Friday, Shandong Province Family Planning Commission officials forced their way into the home of Zhou Guoqiang, Liu’s husband, and took her away.
The couple said that the officials broke down the door of the home at 4 a.m. and pulled Liu from her bed. Zhou said he was held down while his wife was taken.
She was then taken to the People’s Hospital of Fangzi District in Weifang City and was injected with a drug that induces abortions. Her baby boy died and was delivered the next day.
Sadly, monstrous actions like this are routine under “one child.”
