VIDEO: $600 for a third child / baby girl in China?


This Chinese couple had to pay a $600 “deposit” (that was never returned) to the local “family planning center”or risk a forced abortion during the eighth month of pregnancy.  China’s one-child-per family policy has caused a huge discrepancy in the countries male-female ratio – many couples willing to go into hiding rather than being forced to abort their own child.

Pray for China.

    I work in a large Chinese hospital on the east coast, some of our staff do more than 20 abortions per day. Often people will abort a fetus for any kind of birth defect. Late term abortions are also fairly common, including some occasions where the fetus would be viable outside of the womb. I have heard one instance of an abortion happening in the 8th month.

    I covered this topic recently on my blog, http://seeingredinchina.wordpress.com/2011/04/18/a-fight-at-the-hospital-abortion-in-china/
