Feng Jianmei: Forced Abortion Shocks International Community

After this horrific photo of a post-abortive Feng Jianmei and her 7-month old fetus circulated around Chinese social networking sites in mid-June, Chai Ling has spoken out on her behalf, urging China to abandon its brutal One-Child Policy and campaign against women.

 

 

Update: Feng's Husband Flees From Officials

June 27, 2012

 

Two weeks ago, the graphic photograph of Feng JianMei's forcibly aborted 7-month-old fetus shocked the world. The central government has sacked one official and punished another, but little has been done to protect Feng and her family, nor have there been any signs of reform of China's forced abortion practices. Relatives have reported that Ms. Feng's husband, Deng Jiyuan, was cornered and beaten when trying to meet with a lawyer last Friday. He fled the next day after being summoned to meet with government officials. While the family has heard from Deng and is assured of his safety, they are unsure of his whereabouts.

 

Feng, meanwhile, is in the hospital and not allowed to leave. She told reporters that she felt "under a lot of pressure"- no doubt because protestors supporting the Family Planning Commission had gathered outside her hospital, denouncing her for sharing her story and attempting to violate the One-Child Policy. Some internet users have also attacked the family for turning to the foreign media. It is possible that this backlash is being funded by the government to generate public opinion in their favor.

 

Please keep Feng Jianmei and her family in your prayers.

Chai Ling warns: "We need to stop this kind of terrible campaign against women and children in China and immediately. We were told this is not just a single case; it's the beginning of a campaign by local authorities in an effort to try and improve their one-child policy record."

 

Today, BBC News reported here that China had apologized for the forced abortion and were punishing those who had carried it out. Let us continue to put on pressure to end forced abortions in China!
