In the wake of a brutal late-term forced abortion, as well as the suicide of a mother victimized by forced sterilization, please pray for Ms. Lü and her family to receive justice, as well as for Ms. Yang's family. Ask the Lord to send his angels to protect them and provide for their every need at this time of grief.
Two forced sterilization cases have been reported, which All Girls Allowed is currently investigating. In Tongshan, Hubei, one woman is alleged to have died after her forced sterilization. In another caes, a woman was breastfeeding when she was kidnapped by Family Planning Officials in Linyi, Shandong, the same county where blind attorney Chen Guangcheng filed a class-action suit against the government for forced abortions and sterilizations. Pray for healing and justice, and for more details to come to light!
A tragedy occurred this week, as 13-month-old boy died on Monday after being crushed by a minivan driven by Family Planning Officials. The boy was the third child of Chen Liandi and Li Yuhong, who were being pressured to pay over one year's wages by the officials. While trying to detain the mother, the officials knocked the baby boy to the ground and drove over him as they hurried away. Read more about the story here.
Lucy, 49, and her son were sentenced to "reeducation through labor" last year after attempting to petition in Beijing. A few months ago, Lucy was stunned to learn she was pregnant. Though a doctor has confirmed her pregnancy, her "boss" at the labor camp refuses to let her rest, demanding long hours of work. This month, Lucy learned that officials had rebuffed her efforts to get help--they EXTENDED her sentence. Please pray for her! Pray that she would be released, and that the pregnancy would go smoothly despite her advanced ago and months of forced labor.
Pray for the release of imprisoned Nobel Peace prize winner Liu Xiaobo!
