Congressional Hearing -- China's One Child Policy
September 22, 2011
House Committee on Foreign Affairs,
Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, and Human Rights
Our report has thirteen new, documented cases of coercion: forced abortion (including one woman at eight months and another carrying twins at 8 ½ months), forced sterilization, forced contraception, the use of quotas, Family Planning Police, Family Planning jail cells, the demolition of homes (even by relatives, for missing a pregnancy check), the use of “implication” (detention, torture and fining of relatives of “violators”), a couple brutally tortured for missing a pregnancy check by one day, a man whose head was smashed and who is now permanently disabled because his wife had a second child; a father who was beaten to death because his son was suspected of having a second child – these cases are heartbreaking. Many of these cases are documented with extensive photographs as well.
We have chosen to release the names of the perpetrators of these crimes against humanity, so that they can be held accountable before the world.
