Forced Abortion Victims Testify

 

Single women in China are not allowed to give birth, reports humanitarian organization All Girls Allowed at a Congressional hearing Thursday, Sept. 22.
 

The One-Child Policy has “prevented” more than 400 million lives since its start in 1980, and was supposed to end last September.  This anniversary is a surprise for some.
 

“We must remember that the policy is One-Child-Per-Couple,” says Chai Ling, founder of All Girls Allowed. “No marriage certificate, no birth permit. No birth permit, no baby.”
 

Ling will also share a very personal testimony about her own abortion experience.
 

“Not every unmarried pregnant woman in China is dragged to a clinic for a forced abortion,” says.  “But walking in yourself because you have no choice can be equally as painful.”
 

Ling also points out that rampant abortion (with the majority of China’s women having more than one abortion) is not a cultural practice.  Before the policy began, there were fewer than 5 million abortions a year in China.  Today, there are up to 23 million annually.  Many of these are coerced or forced: research shows that over 70 percent of women want two or more children.
 

Two victims will testify:  Ping Liu, a victim of 5 forced abortions, and Yeqing Ji: a victim of one recent forced abortion.
 

The hearing, sponsored by the Africa, Global Health and Human Rights Subcommittee, will be held Thursday, Sept. 22, at 11:30a.m. in the Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2200.
