Another Forced Abortion In China; Mother Eight Months Pregnant

This is the kind of thing that ought to turn your stomach. Communist China is continuing to enforce it's one child policy in brutal ways. The latest example is a forced abortion on a woman that was eight months pregnant. From Life News:
"The victims of a recent forced abortion are speaking out to the media about a recent forced abortion that involved a woman in her eight month of pregnancy. Construction worker Luo Yanquan has told media outlets his wife was taken kicking and screaming from their home by more than a dozen officials.

The forced abortion occurred on October 10 and local family planning officials detained the woman in a hospital for three days for the abortion after learning she had violated the Chinese policy against having more than one child.

There, the officials injected the unborn child with a drug that took the baby's life.

The Press Association indicates the couple were told they could not have the baby because they already have a nine-year-old daughter.

The case has received significant attention on the Internet because a YouTube video showed the harrowing ordeal the couple was forced to ensure.

The story was initially reported by the Al-Jazeera Network, which posted its eight-minute interview with the distraught father, who hails from the coastal Chinese city of Xiamen..."
And the husband's account of what happened.

This is what concern over population growth leads to, particularly by those who justify abortion in the first place. We should be very concerned about the number of Democrats who are sympathetic to the view of global warming alarmists that tie this concern to population growth.
