BIJIE CITY, Guizhou, China -- According to a report by China Aid Association, forced abortion victim Li Fengfei is recovering after a brutal forced abortion left her in critical condition in July (see original All Girls Allowed report on this case below or at this link). More details have emerged about both Ms. Li's background and her forced abortion case.
Li Fengfei, a peasant girl from the Hmong minority group, married her husband in 2004. Several months later, she gave birth to their first child, a girl. At the time of her forced abortion, she was working as an accountant in a local bank branch. However, when her leader tried to embezzle funds, Ms. Li refused to falsify any documents to aid the leader. Since her leader had connections in the local government, the leader framed her and had her imprisoned on charges of embezzling funds. Ms. Li was already pregnant again when she was put in jail.
When she was released on bail, she discovered that one of the conditions of her bail was that she submit to a forced abortion within 10 days. But Ms. Li and her husband had resolved to keep the baby, and so the Family Planning Department sent over 30 officials to limit Ms. Li and her family's freedom for 16 days. Her husband was taken into custody, where he was beaten until his clothes were torn and his ears were ringing.
They then took Ms. Li and beat her as well, even knocking one tooth out in the process and causing profuse bleeding. When she was given the poisonous injection, her cries could be heard throughout the entire building. After the forced abortion, Ms. Li was forced to pay for the cost of the procedure.
Ever since the forced abortion, Ms. Li cannot stop thinking about the dead child, whom they called Zhang Zuyou. After losing her child to the forced abortion, Ms. Li has had great pain in her heart and has had thoughts of death.
Brian Lee, Executive Director of All Girls Allowed, said: "Praise God for his mercy in healing Ms. Li's body and redeeming her from critical condition following the forced abortion in July. We believe this is in answer to the prayers of many who cried out to God on her behalf. At the same time, All Girls Allowed is saddened by the continued brutality of Family Planning Officials despite national and provincial bans on forced abortions. We call on the Guizhou provincial government to take measures to punish those Family Planning Officials that are responsible for this senseless act of violence. May the guilty be apprehended not only by the government, but also by the God who judges all, that they may repent and receive mercy through Christ."

Chinese Mother Dying after Brutal Forced Abortion at 18 Weeks
This article first appeared on All Girls Allowed's website on Friday, July 19, 2013. The original article can be found below and at this link.
BIJIE CITY, Guizhou, China—A woman in China’s Guizhou province is in critical condition this week after local authorities beat her and forcibly aborted her baby. She was 18 weeks pregnant.
On July 9, local Family Planning Officials dragged Li Fengfei to their office and beat her, knocking out one of her front teeth. Five officials forced her fingerprint onto the abortion consent form, then injected toxins into her uterus. She began to have a high fever soon after the injection.
Seventy-two hours later, Ms. Li still had not given birth to the dead baby. To speed up the delivery, Family Planning Officials gave her another injection on July 13. Yet 56 hours later, the dead baby remained in Ms. Li’s womb.
A doctor who saw the report said Ms. Li was given a fatal dose of the abortion-causing drugs. This week, Ms. Li is near death and her dead baby remains in her womb.
Despite public outcry against Feng Jianmei’s forced abortion in June 2012, forced abortion is still practiced throughout China. In fact, 18 of China’s 31 provincial-level districts endorse forced abortion. Ms. Li’s province, Guizhou, requires unspecified “remedial measures” to deal with illegal pregnancies.
Please join All Girls Allowed as we pray in Jesus’ name for the life of Ms. Li and the end of this grisly practice. May God rescue this innocent woman and all others who suffer under the senseless cruelty of the One-Child Policy.
