European Parliament condemns forced abortion in China
July 06, 2012
A month after Feng Jianmei, a woman seventh months pregnant, was forced to undergo an abortion in China, the European Parliament has passed a resolution condemning “the practice of forced abortions and sterilizations globally, especially in the context of the one-child policy.”
The parliament also “reiterate[d] the fundamental right of all women to access reproductive health care, including family planning and assisted childbirth.”
