In the video below, a “family planning” official with the government of Changsha City, in the Chinese province of Hunan, explains how she uses her friendly lieutenants to “persuade” women to have abortions when they exceed the country’s one-child limit. The interview with the official was done last Friday by Bob Fu of the Evangelical Protestant organization China Aid.
The case Mr. Fu is calling about is that of Cao Ruyi, 37, and her husband Li Fu. The two already have a six year old daughter, and now Mrs. Cao is being told she must allow doctors to kill her “illegal baby” (yes, those are the words used by the official) or pay a fine equivalent to $24,000 (four years of wages for the couple) in order to spare his life. She is currently imprisoned at a hospital, where she is surrounded at all times by 10-20 men whose job it is to “persuade” her to have a “voluntary” abortion.
Such is China’s ruthless population control program, a program that is aided heavily by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), an agency that the Obama administration is funding to the tune of $50 million per year despite U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell’s statement in 2002 that “UNFPA’s support of, and involvement in, China’s population-planning activities allows the Chinese government to implement more effectively its program of coercive abortion.”
The UNFPA has always supported China’s bloody “one child policy” since its inception, providing millions of dollars in aid for various programs that support the policy and enable its baby-killing bureaucrats to do their dirty work. The agency has repeatedly deceived the public over the decades of its involvement, first by denying that forced abortions were happening, then claiming that it was mitigating the severity of the program through its soothing presence.
After the coercive nature of the one-child policy was firmly established as public knowledge, the UNFPA temporarily abandoned the program in 1994. But four years later it was back, claiming that it had an agreement with the Chinese government that no coercive tactics would be used in areas of the country where the UNFPA was involved. Investigations by the U.S. State Department and the Population Research Institute in 2002 determined that the UNFPA was again acting deceptively, providing backup support for the one-child-policy and even sharing offices with the same officials who were carrying it out.
