Two-Child Policy Abuses: WRWF Files Complaint Against China at the United Nations

chinaonechildstatueWomen’s Rights Without Frontiers has filed an official Complaint against China, on the basis of continuing coercive population control under the new Two-Child Policy.  Here is the text of that Complaint:

To the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW):

I am the founder and president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, a non-profit, non-partisan international coalition to combat forced abortion, gendercide and sexual slavery in China.  I write to complain about coercive family planning in China.

As you know, WRWF has submitted Complaints for the past five years.  While the UNCSW acknowledged receipt of these Complaints, China has never responded to them.  We believe that, given the international outrage generated by forced abortion and gendercide in China, it behooves China to respond to our official Complaints.

Coercive Population Control Continues Under China’s New Two-Child Policy:  New Number, Same Violence Against Women

As I testified before the Congressional-Executive Commission on China on December 12, 2015, Xinhua News Agency reported on October 29, 2015 that China would move to a two-child policy for all couples, “abandoning its decades-long one-child policy.”

Characterizing this latest modification as “abandoning” the One-Child Policy is misleading. A two-child policy will not end any of the human rights abuses caused by the One Child Policy, including forced abortion, involuntary sterilization or the sex-selective abortion of baby girls.  Read the full hearing transcript here, including statements by Co-Chairs Representative Christopher Smith and Senator Marco Rubio:

China’s New “Two-Child Policy” & the Continuation of Massive Crimes Against Women and Children

http://www.cecc.gov/events/hearings/china%E2%80%99s-new-%E2%80%9Ctwo-child-policy%E2%80%9D-the-continuation-of-massive-crimes-against-women-and

Coercion is the core of the policy.  Instituting a two-child policy will not end forced abortion or forced sterilization.  As blind activist Chen Guangcheng succinctly tweeted:

This is nothing to be happy about. First the #CCP would kill any baby after one. Now they will kill any baby after two. #ChinaOneChildPolicy

The reason given for this adjustment is entirely demographic: “to balance population development and address the challenge of an ageing population.” The adjustment is a tacit admission that continuation of the one-child policy will lead to economic and demographic disaster. The policy was originally instituted for economic reasons. It is ironic that through this very policy, China has written its own economic death sentence.

Noticeably absent from the Chinese Communist party’s announcement is any mention of human rights. The Chinese Communist Party has not suddenly developed a conscience or grown a heart. Even though it will now allow all couples to have a second child, China has not promised to end forced abortion, forced sterilization, or forced contraception.[1]

Indeed, the CCP has gone out of its way to emphasize that family planning restrictions will remain in force.  Shortly after the announcement of the two-child policy, Vice-Minister of the National Health and Family Planning Commission Wang Peian said that “China would not abandon its family planning restrictions.”  He said, “A large population is China’s basic national condition so we must adhere to the basic state policy of family planning.”[2]  He also said that “China needs to . . . promote birth monitoring” before the two-child policy comes into effect.[3]

It appears, therefore, that China plans to maintain its iron grip over the wombs of women.  The Chinese Communist Party will continue to intrude into the bedrooms and between the sheets of the families in China, requiring an arduous process to obtain a “birth permit,” a system of paid informants, and ultrasound checks to make sure that a woman’s IUD is still in place.[4]

Coercion is the core of the policy. Instituting a two-child policy will not end forced abortion or forced sterilization.

The problem with the one-child policy is not the number of children “allowed.” Rather, it is the fact that the CCP is telling women how many children they can have and then enforcing that limit through forced abortion and forced sterilization. There is no guarantee that the CCP will cease their appalling methods of enforcement. Women will still have to obtain a government-issued birth permit, for the first and second child, or they may be subject to forced abortion. It will still be illegal for an unmarried woman to have a child. Regardless of the number of children allowed, women who get pregnant without permission will still be dragged out of their homes, strapped down to tables, and forced to abort babies that they want.

Coercion Continues After the Institution of the Two-Child Policy

According to a report published by Shanghai online news portal Sixth Tone on July 22, 2016, a Guangdong couple has been told they must have an abortion or both lose their government jobs.[5]  The wife is eight months pregnant.

The couple, surnamed Zhong, both have a child from a previous marriage.  They thought that they could have a child together under China’s new Two-Child Policy, as is the case in other provinces in China.  They were mistaken, under the current laws of Guangdong.

The due date of Zhong’s child is September 10.  She told Sixth Tone that she felt depressed, anxious, trapped.  “I can’t give up on this child, as I’m almost 40,” she said.  “And it wouldn’t be easy for us to find jobs again, given our ages.”  Zhong shares her anxieties on WeChat, where approximately 500 people have gathered to share similar experiences.

The Chinese Communist propaganda machine made a big deal out of its shift to a Two-Child Policy, announcing that they had “abandoned” the One-Child Policy.  WRWF immediately stated that this minor modification would not end coercion, and now the proof is beginning to leak out.  Our hearts go out to the Zhong family.  They are brave indeed to stand up to the intense government pressure to abort at eight months or both lose their jobs.  The Chinese government is doing its best to force them to have an abortion by exerting intense financial pressure.  The fact that there are 500 people commiserating with them on WeChat demonstrates that they are not alone.  This would indicate a pattern or practice of continuing coercion.

Another Guangdong native, He Liping, is six months pregnant.  She faces a crippling fine:  “I had no idea that we’re not qualified to have a second child until I went to register for a birth permit with the local neighborhood committee.”  Her husband had a child before marrying her, and they have a two-year old together.  She is now six months pregnant.  Fines for illegal children in Foshan run 260,000 yuan ($39,000).  “It’s a huge amount of money for an average family like mine,” He told Sixth Tone.

He Liping does not face joblessness, but rather a ‘terror fine.’  These fines can be up to ten times a person’s annual salary.  Most people cannot afford to pay these fines and are forced to have abortions. In addition, the Chinese government announced earlier this year that they had abolished the birth permit system for first and second children.  Clearly, this is not the case.[6] [Addendum]

The Chinese Communist Party has not agreed to get out of the bedrooms of the Chinese people.  The fact that Sixth Tone is a State-controlled media outlet indicates that even within the Chinese Communist Party there are those who recognize the human tragedy and appalling injustice of coercive population control.

Number of Reported Abortions in China Increased from 13 Million to 23 Million – 2015 State Department Report

In the past, the Chinese government reported 13 million abortions a year, noting that according to official Chinese sources, “The number of abortions performed is believed to be higher,” because the statistics were collected only from registered medical institutions and did not include abortions at unregistered clinics.

The 2015 State Department Report, however, states that an “official news media outlet” has reported that “at least an additional 10 million chemically induced abortions were performed in nongovernmental facilities.”  The Chinese government did not provide a statistic on how many of these abortions were forced.

Adding abortions of official and unofficial facilities results in 23 million abortions a year.  23 million abortions a year comes to 63,013 abortions a day, 2625 abortions an hour, 43 per minute.  The United States population is about 320 million, with about 1 million abortions per year.  The population of China is almost 1.4 billion, with about 23 million abortions per year.  Therefore China, with four times the population of the United States, has 23 times the number of abortions.

NIPT in the Bud

Technology spreading in China may target girls in gendercide abortions

Even as the Chinese government moves to a Two Child Policy, women’s rights in China may be in more danger than ever before – especially for baby girls.

NIPT, a prenatal diagnostic technology, analyzes fetal DNA taken from a mother’s blood to discover birth defects. However, the tool can also be used to discover a baby’s gender as early as seven weeks’ gestation – making it easier to terminate if a pregnancy is unwanted for being female. Such abuse has been documented in several countries, including the United States and Great Britain, where a government study recently showed evidence potentially linking the test with prenatal gendercide.

Reports now indicate NIPT is rapidly spreading in China, where baby girls already struggle to survive under a strong cultural preference for males.

As I stated in testimony before the Congressional-Executive Commission on China, “Where brutal son preference meets non-invasive, early sex determination of a fetus, inevitably baby girls will be selectively aborted.” (Click here to read full text of statement.)

The demand for NIPT has already grown so strong that Chinese officials last year implemented stricter regulations for its use – apparently with an eye to curbing abuses by expectant families.

Moreover, the recent change to a “Two Child Policy” makes the scenario for girls even worse: studies  indicate that a pregnancy is far likelier to be aborted for being a girl if it is the second of two, rather than the only one allowed.

Such sex selective abortions, according to a 2009 British Medical Journal study, accounts for almost all the excess males in China:  in other words, 37 million Chinese men will never marry because their future wives were terminated before they were born. This provides a strong demand for trafficking in women and sexual slavery in and around China.

It’s the latest link showing the Chinese Communist Party’s switch to a Two Child Policy is a switch in name only – China’s forced population control system remains the same.

Coercive Population Control Is Not the Answer to Global Warming, Sustainable Development

The theme for UNCSW 2016 was “Women’s empowerment and the link to sustainable development.” Regarding “sustainable development,” at the U.N. Climate Conference in Copenhagen in December of 2009, a senior official responsible for the coercive population control famously stated that the One Child Policy was successful in reducing carbon emissions blamed for global warming.

According to Xinhua, Zhao Baige, then-Vice Minister of China’s National Population and Family Planning Commission, stated:

“China has managed to bring down its birth rate with the family planning policy in the past 30 years, which results in less population and less carbon dioxide emission . . . Such a decline in population growth converts into a reduction of 1.83 billion tons of carbon dioxide emission in China per annum at present. . . . The policy on family planning proves to be a great success. It not only contributes to reduction of global emission, but also provides experiences for other countries, developing countries in particular, in their pursuit for a coordinated and sustainable development.”

China’s Population Policy Helps Slow Global Warming, Says Official 12/10/09 (Copenhagen) http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-12/10/content_12624315.htm

China has touted the elimination of 400 million lives under the coercive One Child Policy as an effective means to combat climate change.  They have also set their population control program out as a successful example for developing nations to follow.

What the Chinese government has not mentioned is the fact that too many of these lives were prevented through forced abortion and involuntary sterilization.

Human beings are not walking carbon footprints.

Forced abortion is not a choice.  It is official government rape.

UNCSW Theme:  The Prevention of Violence Against Women and Girls

The UNCSW this year reviewed the 2013 theme, “the prevention of violence against women and girls.”  Forced abortion and gendercide under China’s One Child Policy will continue under the two-child policy.  Since the UNCSW has stated through its 2013 “Agreed Conclusions” that coercive population control should end, WRWF calls upon the U.N. to take effective action to end it.

More often than not, gendercide is not a choice either. There is a strong correlation between sex-selective abortion and coercion. Crushing social, economic, political and personal pressures in cultures with a strong son preference trample women pregnant with girls. All too often, women in these cultures do not “select” their daughters for abortion. They are forced.

For most of us, “it’s a girl” is cause for enormous joy, happiness and celebration.  But in many countries, this phrase can be a death sentence.   In fact, the words, “it’s a girl” are the deadliest words on earth when said at the birth of a child.  According to one U.N. estimate, up to 200 million women are missing in the world today due to “gendercide,” the selective abortion, abandonment or deadly neglect of baby girls just because they are female.

This is not a political issue.  This is a human rights issue that must be approached as an area of common ground.  No one supports the systematic elimination of women and girls.

In China, the birth ratio of girls to boys is the most skewed in the world.  The sex ratio at birth has risen from 108.5 in 1982 to almost 118 boys born for every 100 girls born in 2010.

Sons traditionally carry on the family name, work the fields, and take care of their parents in old age. A daughter joins her husband’s family at marriage. There is a saying: “Raising a girl is like watering someone else’s garden.” The One Child Policy exacerbates the underlying son preference. When couples are restricted to one child, women often become the focus of intense pressure by their husband and in-laws to ensure a boy.

A woman need not be dragged out of her home and strapped down to a table to be a victim of forced abortion. Persistent emotional pressure, estrangement from the extended family, threat of abandonment or divorce, verbal abuse, and domestic violence often overpower women who otherwise would choose to keep their daughters.

Systematic, sex-selective abortion constitutes gendercide. Because of this gendercide, there are an estimated 37 million more males than females in China today. The presence of these “excess males” is the driving force behind human trafficking and sexual slavery, not only within China but from surrounding nations as well.

China has the highest female suicide rate of any country in the world. According to the 2013 U.S. State Department China Human Rights Report, the numbers of female suicides have risen sharply in the past several years, from 500 women per day to 590.

China’s One Child Policy causes more violence against women and girls than any other official policy on earth and any other official policy in the history of the world.  This is the true “War Against Women.”

The One Child Policy is causing a “senior tsunami.”  The population is aging rapidly, with no young population to sustain it.  According to figures provided by political economist and demographer Nicholas Eberstadt, China’s working population peaked in 2013 at about 73% and is now beginning a steady decline to 67% in 2030.  Meanwhile, the ratio of China’s population, ages 55-64 to its population ages 15 to 24, will increase from about 30% in 1990 to 140% in 2030.

Bottom line:  China will grow old before it grows rich.  China’s population problem is not that it has too many people, but that it has too few young people. 

Breast Cancer Induced by Forced Abortion Is a Violation of Women’s Rights

A medical study from China has revealed an additional way in which women are victimized by the One-Child Policy: significantly increased risk of breast cancer.

A meta-analysis of the association between induced abortion and breast cancer risk among Chinese females, dated November 24, 2013, was published by NCBI, National Center for Biotechnology Information, branch of the NIH, National Institute of Health.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24272196

Researchers in China have found that the dramatic rise in breast cancer in China is associated with the prevalence of induced abortions (IA) under the One-Child Policy. The study, conducted by a team of epidemiologists from Tianjin Medical University Cancer Hospital, analyzed data from over 36 different studies in both the United States and China. Their conclusion:

“IA [is] significantly associated with an increased risk of breast cancer among Chinese females, and the risk of breast cancer increases as the number of IA increases.” Specifically, the study found that one IA increases a woman’s risk of breast cancer by 44 percent, two by 76 percent, and three by 89 percent.

The study notes that historically, China has had low breast cancer rates when compared with Western nations, but “the incidence of breast cancer in China ha[s] increased at an alarming rate over the past two decades.” The study notes that this rise “was paralleled to the one-child-per-family policy.”

In our view, the strong association of abortion and breast cancer established by this study brings the women’s rights violations under the One Child Policy to a new level:  a woman pregnant in China without a birth permit is subjected to both government imposed forced abortion, and also breast cancer as a result of it. Where abortion is forced, the subsequent development of breast cancer becomes a violation of women’s rights in itself.  “China:  One-Child Policy Linked to Breast Cancer – Study.”   http://www.womensrightswithoutfrontiers.org/blog/?p=1428.  12/2/13

It is a woman’s right to choose to give birth to her daughters. Together, China and India comprise one third of the world’s population. That one-third of the world’s women are deprived of their right to bear girls is the biggest women’s rights abuse on earth. This is the true War on Women, and it deserves a passionate response from groups that stand for women’s rights.

These problems are not confined to China and India.  Female feticide happens in the United States and Canada in numbers significant enough to distort gender ratios.  This is discrimination against women in its most violent form.

Women’s Rights Without Frontiers:  International Advocacy

Fortunately, there is hope. Women’s Rights Without Frontiers has launched two campaigns.  First is our international advocacy campaign, in which we document these atrocities and speak to governments about how we in the West are funding it through UNFPA and International Planned Parenthood.  We have had some success:  The European Parliament passed a Resolution and the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women in 2013 passed an “Agreed Conclusion” condemning forced abortion and state-run coercive population control.

Saving Baby Girls At-Risk in China – Our “Save a Girl” Campaign

Second, through our “Save a Girl” Campaign in rural China, we are stopping gendercide, one baby girl at a time. We have field workers in China who reach out to women who have had an ultrasound, learned that they are pregnant with a girl, and are planning to abort or abandon her. A field worker will visit that woman and say, “Don’t abort your baby just because she’s a girl. She’s a precious daughter. We will give you a monthly stipend for a year, to help you support her.”

The practical support we offer empowers these women to keep their daughters. By the time the girl is three months old, she’s laughing and smiling and the whole family is in love with her. They can’t imagine life without her and thank us for saving the life of their daughter. This is what gets me out of bed in the morning – knowing that there are babies in China who are alive today because of our efforts. It is astonishing how little money it takes to save someone’s life in China.

We are also living the mission every day, around our own kitchen table.  With the help of Cong. Chris Smith and other brave souls in the United States and China, we were able to obtain safe passage from China to the United States for Anni and Ruli Zhang, the daughters of veteran pro-democracy activist Zhang Lin, who is currently serving a 3.5 year jail sentence for standing up for 10-year-old Anni’s right to go to school.  My husband Robert and I have taken Anni and Ruli into our family and are raising them as our own daughters.  Anni has won a piano competition and will play at Carnegie Hall in December!  Anni’s mother was almost forcibly aborted at six months.  Anni is a shining example of the beauty, brilliance and love that are being lost every day in China, due to forced and sex-selective abortion.

Every struggling mother in China deserves help to keep her daughter. Every little girl deserves to see the light of day.

The Chinese Communist Party Will Never Relinquish Coercive Population Control

As fully explained in my Congressional testimony of April 30, 2015, the Chinese Communist Party will never relinquish coercive population control because 1) it enables them to maintain its grip on power through terror – it is social control, masquerading as population control; 2) it is a lucrative profit center, bringing in as much as $314 billion in fines since its inception; 3) it provides an infrastructure of coercion that can be used to crush dissent of any sort; and 4) it ruptures relationships of trust, so that people cannot organize for change.  I believe that the Chinese Communist Party is maintaining its grip on power by shedding the blood of the innocent women and babies of China.

Conclusion

Sending out the message that China has “abandoned” its one-child policy is detrimental to sincere efforts to stop forced abortion and gendercide in China, because this message implies that the one-child policy is no longer a problem. In a world laden with compassion fatigue, people are relieved to cross China’s one-child policy off of their list of things to worry about. But we must not do that. Let us not abandon the women of China, who continue to face forced abortion, and the baby girls of China, who continue to face sex-selective abortion and abandonment under the new Two-Child Policy.

The one-child policy does not need to be modified. It needs to be abolished.

Policy Recommendations:

We respectfully request that the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women urge the Chinese government to:

*Abolish the Two-Child Policy and all forms of coercive population control;

*Offer incentives for couples to have girls;[7]

*Offer pensions to couples who do not have a son, ensuring that parents of girls will not become impoverished in their old age;

*Abolish the hukou system, so that all children will have access to healthcare and education;

*Establish principles of Corporate Social Responsibility, to ensure that foreign corporations doing business in China do not allow coercive population control measures to be taken against their employees; and

*Defund UNFPA, unless and until UNFPA stops supporting or participating in the management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization in China, in violation of the 1985 Kemp-Kasten Amendment.

I hope to work with you to help end this extremely serious violation of the rights of women and girls in China.  Please feel free to contact me should you require any further information.

Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter.

Very truly yours,

Reggie Littlejohn

[5] Guangdong Families Told to Have Abortion or Lose Job

http://www.sixthtone.com/news/guangdong-families-told-have-abortion-or-lose-job

[6] ADDENDUM. On August 3, 2016 – just after this Complaint was filed — an article appeared on womenofchina.cn, the English language website of the Communist Party-affiliated China Women’s Federation.  The article, entitled, “Couples Not Waiting for Two-Child Policy,” stated: “Remarried couples in Guangdong province who are pregnant with their second child will not be forced to have an abortion, even though they have not yet been granted permission for a second child.  The provincial population and family planning commission will also not suggest that employers dismiss or punish those who are pregnant with a second child without permission, the [provincial] commission said on Tuesday.”  See,  http://www.womenofchina.cn/womenofchina/html1/features/Spotlight/1608/372-1.htm

It is unclear whether the statement of the provincial commission would affect the families whose plight is discussed in Sixth Tone.  For both families, three children were involved.  Would the current pregnancies of Zhong and He be considered second or third children?  Will they be allowed to maintain their pregnancies without losing their jobs or paying a “terror fine”?  Only time will tell.

Meanwhile, the Women’s Federation article goes on to quote a remarried woman from Guangdong as saying, “Some wives who have been pregnant with their second child have had an abortion because they fear being dismissed by their employers.”  The decisions of these married women to abort their second children rather than lose their jobs underscores the ongoing human agony and tragedy caused by coercive population control in China.  The Women’s Federation article concludes by noting that “the birthrate in [Guangdong] – which lacks a sufficient workforce and relies on people migrating from other provinces – has remained low for decades . . .”  This is the real reason for the adjustment from a One-Child Policy to a Two-Child Policy.  The Chinese government has not repented of its women’s rights atrocities.  Rather, it fears the inevitable economic consequences of its 35-year history of coercive population control.
