Sanctity of Life - HR3541 - Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act - #3908 - Human Rights Expert Details Horrific Forced Abortion and Infanticide Procedures in China (2) Chen 'Finally Free,' Arrives in U.S. - Baptist Press



HR3541 Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act - Human Rights Expert Details Horrific Forced Abortion and Infanticide Procedures in China - Listen to the lawyer and human rights expert discuss these tragic details, below: (caution: graphic images and content):Accuracy in Media‘s investigative video team put together a fascinating video discussion with Reggie Littlejohn, president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers (WRWF). The non-partisan, international coalition works to prevent forced abortion and human trafficking in China. During her sit-down interview, Littlejohn discussed China’s infamous one-child policy, sterilizations, forced abortion and infanticide. While these elements are troubling, they are a part of daily life for Chinese men and women forced to live under sometimes brutal circumstances. Littlejohn described the startling 13 million abortions that allegedly occur in China each year. This shocking number ends up being 35,000 babies aborted per day (nearly 1,500 procedures being conducted each hour). She also described the horrific mandate that women face to undergo forced abortions — sometimes up to the ninth month of their pregnancies. When women decide to run away in an attempt to save the life of their unborn children, government officials sometimes turn to violence against loved ones to convince the women who are hiding out to follow through with their abortions. In one particularly gruesome example, Littlejohn provides a story that seems practically incomprehensible in an modern-day society.

Chen 'Finally Free,' Arrives in U.S. - Baptist Press - Chinese human rights advocate Chen Guangcheng arrived in the United States Saturday (May 19) with his wife and two children, beginning a new chapter of freedom despite ongoing concern for his family in China. With little notice, Chen boarded a plane in Beijing en route to Newark Liberty Airport in New Jersey, where CNN reported he arrived to little fanfare after the U.S. State Department prohibited public and media access. The 40-year-old self-trained lawyer, blind since childhood, was imprisoned and placed under house arrest for exposing the barbaric nature of China's one-child policy. In one of the most tragic examples Chen had helped uncover, the government forced a woman who was seven months pregnant to have an abortion and forcibly sterilized her, LifeNews.com reported. Rep. Chris Smith, R.-N.J., a longtime champion of Chen's cause, met with him upon Chen's arrival in New Jersey.  Read more........
