This week marked a tragic anniversary: 33 years of the one-child policy in China. This barbaric policy has harmed hundreds of millions of people. Abortion is a major component of the policy, whether it is “chosen” by women who know that they will only have one shot at motherhood, or physically enforced by government goons. Women can be forcibly aborted up to the very moment before birth.
Women’s Rights Without Frontiers asks you to add your name to its petition against the one-child policy. The government of China must know that the international community condemns its slaughter. There is little else that we can do.
