China pauses genocidal forced sterilization over concern for women’s rights in US

Chinese government newspaper world times expressed concern Wednesday about the potential reversal of Roe vs. Wade in America — in response to this week’s leak of a draft Supreme Court ruling — saying such a ruling would signal that America is choosing a path of “regression and ignorance.”

The leak, published in the US outlet Policy, was a draft opinion by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito concluding that “the right to abortion is not deeply rooted in the history and traditions of the nation”. If passed – something the Court has since insisted is not a foregone conclusion – individual US states would once again be given the right to dictate their own laws about ending children’s lives in the womb. .

China, arguably the world’s worst human rights violator, has used abortion and infanticide for decades to oppress political dissidents and contain the growth of ethnic minority populations. International human rights experts have concluded that China’s “family planning” policies constitute genocide.

The Chinese Communist Party proudly boasts of its “one-child policy” which killed 400 million people, not counting mothers who died in forced abortions, while it was in place. He continues to promote the concept of improving the “quality of the population” and has since launched a massive campaign of forced abortions, sterilization and infanticide against the Uyghur people of East Turkestan, which international experts have concluded. that it was genocide.

the world times did not address any of the realities of women’s rights in China in his Wednesday comment, in which he came across as flabbergasted that Americans are debating the legality of abortion. Free debate and expressions of political disagreement are a crime in China known as “stirring up quarrels and provoking trouble.”

“Incredibly, abortion freedom has suddenly become a topic of fierce debate in American society in 2022,” said the Time proclaimed. “The [Politico] The report sparked a discussion about whether Washington would take this stunning step backwards for women’s rights and sparked emerging protests across the country.

“Yes Roe vs. Wade is finally overturned, the nearly 50-year-old legal abortion rights in the United States will crumble, and the history of the United States’ progress in defending women’s rights will be reversed,” the Chinese media predicted. “Unfortunately, American political forces don’t care. All they care about is whether the issue would bring them any benefit, regardless of the fact that their increasingly radical positions could trigger deeper and more bitter divisions in American society.

“Most importantly, by bringing the discussions of abortion half a century ago back to center stage, the United States is showing the world that it may be heading down the path of regression and ignorance amid fierce political struggles,” he continued, quoting a regime-approved “expert” identified as Professor Xu Liang. “Whether it’s gun control or abortion, liberals and conservatives are pushing their respective agendas to extremes, which could increasingly distort American society,” Lü said.

Xu described the reversal of Roe vs. Wade as a “potential atomic bomb in American society…creating another Black Lives Matter movement.”

Despite its ongoing genocide against Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and other ethnic minorities, and its years of documented racist policies against black people, the Chinese government has embraced the American “Black Lives Matter” movement and used it as a cudgel to attack the legitimacy of the United States on the world stage.

“The human rights challenges facing the United States run deep. They haven’t appeared in the past four years, like “Black Lives Matter.” This has only recently come to light,” exclaimed Yang Jiechi, a member of the Politburo of the Chinese Communist Party, in a 16-minute rant during a meeting with Secretary of State Antony Blinken and security adviser National Jake Sullivan in Alaska last year.

Elsewhere in Chinese state media, the state-run Xinhua news agency speculated that the Supreme Court leak “could energize” the Democratic Party, citing regime-approved experts to describe the potential overthrow of deer as “the loss of [women’s] individual rights.”

Individual rights do not exist in China. The Communist Party strictly controls nearly every aspect of individual life through its “Social Credit System,” which assigns a numerical value to each person based on their loyalty and usefulness to the Party. The Communist Party has especially deprived women of their reproductive rights. Under its brutal “one-child policy”, state doctors killed children in the womb, sometimes very late in pregnancies, when a woman was found to be “illegally” pregnant with a second child. The practice persists even though China extended the three-child policy in 2021.

The “one-child policy” has created a dramatic gap between the number of men and women in China; It is estimated that China is home to 35 million more men than women, as Chinese parents on the whole prefer to give up the girls and keep the boys. The abundance of men has led to a slump in the birth rate, as China lacks a sustainable population of women of childbearing age. The Communist Party responded to this by announcing in 2021 that it would begin limiting approvals for “non-medical” abortions and making it legal for Han couples to have up to three children.

In February, the the wall street journal said he had secured a government plan for an “intervention campaign” to prevent abortions and “reshape the parenting culture of multi-child families”.

“In 1991, during the era of some of the most brutal enforcement of the one-child policy, about 14 million abortions were performed in China, according to data from the National Health Commission. The number was just under nine million in 2020,” said the Log observed.

Childbirth promotion is limited to people of Han ethnicity, the majority of China’s population in the east. In western China, the Communist Party actively uses abortion and sterilization to limit the population of predominantly Muslim ethnic groups, which dominate in East Turkestan.

The Uighur Tribunal, an independent coalition of human rights and international law experts, found China guilty of genocide against the Uighurs “beyond reasonable doubt” last year. The use of abortion and sterilization proved to be a cornerstone in arriving at this conclusion.

“Pregnant women, in detention centers and outside, were forced to abort even in the very last stages of pregnancy. During attempted abortions, babies were sometimes born alive but were then killed,” reads the Uyghur court judgment. “A systematic program of birth control measures had been put in place, requiring women to undergo the involuntary removal of the uterus and to undergo effective sterilization by means of IUDs which could only be removed by means surgical.”

The definition of genocide, according to the United Nations, includes “the imposition of measures intended to prevent births within the group.”
