News has surfaced of another violent late-term abortion in
China. The victim was six months pregnant.
Qiao Ping'an was working in the fields during harvest when seven
"family planning" officials arrived at his home in Qiaojia Village
and, without his knowledge, forced his wife Song to go to Universal
Love Woman's Hospital, which was 100 kilometers away.
Brian Lee, executive director of All Girls
Allowed (AGA), explains what transpired there.
"When they got to the hospital, the officials violently tied
Song down, confiscated her cell phone and took off all of her
clothing," he tells OneNewsNow. "And since she continued to resist
quite strongly, they forcibly injected her with a sedative and
pressed her finger to sign the voluntary abortion consent
Then, according to Lee, a needle was pushed into her womb to
inject chemicals to kill the baby and induce labor and she was
locked in the room. Her family arrived six hours later and
quarreled with authorities, but were sent home.
"To continue the tragedy, she suffered a mental breakdown,"
continues the AGA spokesman. "Now she's in a trance-like state of
shock. She can't take care of herself. One of her two daughters is
seven years old and she is crying everyday asking what has happened
to her mother."
Lee says the incident is horrible, but urges that Christians
maintain a posture of hope and faith, and continue to pray for an
end to China's forced-abortion policy. Plus, Lee adds, China must
be held accountable.
