Blind Chinese forced abortion opponent escapes house arrest, under US protection


A blind Chinese activist, who has been under house arrest in China for years, has dramatically escaped to the U.S. Embassy.  The lawyer, Chen Guangcheng is known for his outspoken opposition to China’s horrible human rights record – especially its one-child per family policy which results in forced late-term abortions, gendercide and a stagnate population growth.

According to reports he evaded security forces surrounding his home and traveled over 300 miles to Beijing aided by an underground network of human rights activists and found his way to the U.S. Embassy.  American officials have yet to confirm these reports.

Let our hearts and prayers go out for Chen and his family – that Chen can seek asylum in our country and continue bringing to light China’s enormous violations against human rights especially forced abortions and sterilization.  Also, keep his family in your thoughts and prayers as many have been detained by police.  Local Chinese authorities have been known to viciously beat anyone who has tried visiting Chen, including driving away Christian Bale who tried to visit him while under house arrest recently.

  1. We have a president that supports infanticide and a secretary of state that believes the death of your baby is empowering. Maybe, God has a plan to educate our political promoters of death through the enormous pain and suffering of Chen and his family.
