I have always thought that China’s One-Child Policy was not enforced heavily today, but I was completely wrong. After hearing about this, I felt sick to my stomach. This Chinese lady was eight months pregnant, but that did not stop the Chinese government from killing the baby. Twelve officials barged into Xiao Aiying’s house, and they kicked her in the stomach. Then, they took her to a hospital where doctors injected her with a drug that killed the baby.
Luo Yanquan, Xiao Aiying’s husband who is a construction worker, described what happened: “They held her hands behind her back and pushed her head against the wall and kicked her in the stomach. I don’t know if they were trying to give her a miscarriage. Our ten-year-old daughter has been excited about having a little brother or sister but I don’t know how I can explain to her what has happened.”
Xiao said, ”I have had this baby, feeling it moving around and around my belly. Can you imagine how I feel now.”
Forced abortions are actually banned in China, but the law did not specify what to do with late-term abortions.
One of the official claimed that Luo approved the procedure. When asked about it, Luo immediately denied it.
You can be fined for violating the One-Child Policy. However, with the economy improving, parents can actually afford to pay the fine. However, those without anything, they can end up like Xiao.
I actually got chills after hearing about this. This was completely inhuman and cruel. How could they do this to her? Seriously, something needs to be done in terms of population control, or else this is going to happen often in the future.
