Forced Abortion Delayed In Remote China
The procedure has been delayed following an international outcry, the Radio Free Asia reported. Rep. Chris Smith wrote an appeal calling on the Chinese Ambassador, Zhou Wenshong, to intervene, Radio Free Asia and the Pioneer Press reported.
Smith called the situation a ‚Äúnightmare of forced abortion,‚Ä? according to the Pioneer Press.
This third child is called into question because although Tursun is a rural woman, her husband is registered as urban, Radio Free Asia and the Pioneer Press reported.
‚ÄúThe Chinese government is notorious for this barbaric practice, but to forcibly abort a woman while the world watches in full knowledge of what is going on would make a mockery of its claim that the central government disapproves of the practice,‚Ä? Smith said, according to the Pioneer Press.
