It’s becoming clear that China is trying to stamp out all minorities in the country.
But have you heard how they’re doing it?
Recent reports reveal the horrific abortion practices behind this population control.
The communist Chinese government has oppressed its citizens through population control measures for decades.
The government’s “one-child” policy has forced women to abort untold numbers of innocent babies and Chinese families are penalized with huge fines and potential jail time for having more than one child.
“It is well known that those who violate the one-child policy have sometimes been subjected to coerced abortions or…have been forced to pay punitive fines and have been sterilized,” wrote Steven Mosher, a population researcher who originally exposed these human rights abuses.
“But it has also recently come to our attention that Chinese villagers who cannot afford to pay these fines have their ‘illegal’ children abducted and sold by Chinese population control officials.”
Mosher authored this report nearly a decade ago, revealing the terrible secrets of the Chinese government’s attack on families.
After many outcries against these horrible policies, the government claimed they had backed off on its population control efforts, but recent news has proven this is not true.
Human rights abuses are still happening on a grand scale—and they’re targeted at vulnerable minority groups who have no means to protect themselves.
The Uighur people, who are members of a minority Muslim group scattered across the Xinjiang region of China, have been specifically targeted by birth control policies.
According to recent reports, hundreds of thousands of Uighur women have been subjected to forced sterilization, forced abortions, and state-mandated pregnancy testing.
Birth rates have declined drastically among the Uighur, and thousands of women are mourning the loss of their children—both their born and unborn.
“This kind of drop [in birth rates] is unprecedented,” said Adrian Zenz, a Chinese scholar who’s trying to expose the government’s deadly work.
“There’s a ruthlessness to it. This is part of a wider control campaign to subjugate the Uighurs.”
The Uighur are also routinely forced to attend “re-education” programs to brainwash them into accepting communist policies.
All of this is happening under the radar while the communist government claims to be embracing freedom and civility.
The Chinese government has an “army” of family planning officials estimated to be 1 million strong, and their efforts are strategically targeted to quell growing unrest all across China.
While the communist regime claims “one family, one child” is a logical protective measure, it’s clear this is all about control.
Families across China have shared horror stories of their experiences with the Chinese “abortion police.”
“One woman, [named] After Gulnar Omirzakh, said the government ordered her to have an IUD inserted after her third child,” noted one news source.
“Two years later, officials turned up at her house and told her she had three days to pay a $2,685 fine for having more than two children.”
When faced with this threat, the courageous woman said, “God bequeaths children on you. To prevent people from having children is wrong…they want to destroy us [Uighurs] as a people.”
Another minority family shared that they had tried to hide a pregnancy from the government—and suffered unimaginable consequences for trying to expand their family.
The husband suffered a brutal beating when officials kidnapped him and the wife was forced to abort their unborn baby at six months.
“The baby was well-formed,” a family member recalled. “You could even see his fingernails. He was a bit small, but very well-developed already.”
Hundreds of thousands of families across China share these experiences and are left bereft and grieving after communist officials kidnap and murder their children.
“The infrastructure of coercion instituted under the One Child Policy can be turned in any direction to crush dissent of any sort,” says Reggie Littlejohn, the founder of Women’s Rights without Frontiers, an organization dedicated to stopping forced abortions in China.
“Forced abortion is not a choice,” Littlejohn stated firmly.
And it’s never the solution to societal problems, as anyone in China can attest.
Please pray for the Uighur people and other minorities throughout China. Let’s consider how we can advocate for them and comfort them as the communist government tries to destroy the next generation of children.
