Urgent: China’s Blind Forced Abortion Opponent Needs Your Help (New Chen Guangcheng Video)

Blind activist Chen Guangcheng’s health is in serious jeopardy because of repeated beatings and malnutrition he suffers in house detention. Women’s Rights Without Frontiers and China Aid Association called today for urgent action to free Chen and his family. Women’s Rights Without Frontiers released a video demanding freedom for Chen and his family. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpVJidDqVJo

Reggie Littlejohn, President of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, stated, “Chen’s wife sounded the alarm in a letter recently smuggled out of China. She said that Chen’s health is very fragile and worsening every day because of beatings, malnutrition and an intestinal illness. She is worried about his survival. Chen sacrificed everything to tell the world the brutal truth about forced abortion in China. He is a warrior for women’s rights. Now it’s our turn to sacrifice on behalf of Chen by fighting for his freedom.”

Bob Fu, President of China Aid, stated, “The abuse of Chen Guangcheng is unconscionable and contrary to the rule of law. His mistreatment under house arrest is deplorable, including beatings, constant surveillance, as well as confiscation of his computer, cell phone, books, his blind cane and the toys of his young daughter.”

The two organizations are partnering to spearhead an initiative to free Chen and his family. They call upon the international diplomatic community to make official interventions on behalf of Chen with the Chinese government. They also call upon individuals to write Chinese embassies and consulates around the world and sign the petition to Free Chen Guangcheng at: www.womensrightswithoutfrontiers.org/index.php?nav=chen-guangcheng#petition

Chen Guangcheng was arrested in 2006 for exposing evidence that 130,000 forced abortions and involuntary sterilizations were performed on women in Linyi County, Shandong Province in a single year. Time Magazine named him one of “2006’s Top 100 People Who Shape Our World” and he was given the 2007 Magsaysay award, known as Asia’s Nobel Peace Prize.

Chen spent four years, three months in prison. Since his September 2010 release, he continues to serve a sentence of home detention. Both in prison and under house arrest, Chen has experienced mistreatment and beatings. He and his wife and daughter are not allowed sufficient food and are isolated from all outside contact.

    thanks email newsletter

    what sort of people beat a blind man !

    your appeal doesent state why-till one gets on your website

    then the debate of population control arises

    responsable controlled population and quallity of life for people that a country can afford

    obviously a very debateable subject-where there is no real answer

    population and means of supporting them cause world wars etc and local wars in many countries ,over food crops water wealth health etc

    i personally believe dont bring life into the world unless you can support it

    some countries are in better positions to support life-than others less fortunate

    it remains an unanswerable question
    and i dont believe people should be illtreated

  15. Karen Hayes says:

    China, get rid of your forced abortion policy. Quit beating Chen Guangcheng, and let him go! Restore him to health, and let him have free speech rights.

  16. Bonnie says:

    China’s continued support for inhumane and abusive repressive policies will prevent them from enjoying full participation in the world economy of other free, democratic and human-rights law-abiding nations. China needs to show good faith toward this effort by releasing these peope.

  17. Margaret Seymour says:

    Please free and honour this great Chinese Pro-life hero and his family. Stop persecuting them and thereby shaming the good Chinese people.

    What sort of human beings kill unborn human life: severely misled human beings. They will stop at nothing to destroy, not even the life of a blind man. Population control is a LIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is NO debate. (http://www.hli.org/index.php/population-control). ANY KIND of population that is controlled will involve some sort of killing. Where there is a will to live, there is always a way to live. Africa is NOT starving because the people are irresponsibly multiplying like rabbits! Africa’s CORRUPT GOVERNMENT IS THE PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am SICK AND TIRED of the LIE called “population control” being produced by the deceitful and promulgated by the ignorant! There is NO DEBATE! Just as there is no debate on abortion! There are only facts and opinions on those facts. No mother in her right mind would EVER destroy her unborn child!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And please allow me to enlighten you, there is a VERY REAL answer to both: 1. Courageous leadership where a nation upholds the dignity and integrity of its people, and 2. Compassion, love and support, a genuine option (like adoption) offered to a scared mother. Only greed and selfishness lead to wars. And I believe with every ounce of my being that ANY people is capable of supporting life, no matter if she is a mother in a shantytown in Peru, or one in a condo in NYC. The truth of the matter is, are YOU willing to open your heart and mind to a VERY REAL solution of NEVER resorting to the KILLING of a human being? When a human being is murdered, she has been seriously ill-treated.

    Let us be relentless in praying for Chen Guangcheng and his family and for the immediate collapse of communism in China and in every other comunist country.

  21. Jeremy says:

    Shame on other western governments and media for not speaking out on the issue. I don’t know how we can turn a blind eye to such a devastating threat to human rights. I pray that the suffering inflicted on Chen Guangcheng and his family is ended and that he enjoys the reward he deserves either on this earth or in heaven. Lets pray for a miracle in Christ.

    thank you for your prayers!
