Chinese activist presses Apple to work against one-child policy

Catholic World News - September 11, 2012

Chen Guangcheng, the Chinese pro-life activist, has urged executives at the Apple computer company to use their influence against China’s brutal one-child population policy.

Chen, whose dramatic escape from house arrest and subsequent departure to the US was an international sensation in April, argued that Apple has enormous influence in China, where its highly successful iPhone and iPad products are manufactured. “There’s a huge social responsibility” for a company that employs thousands of Chinese workers, the blind activist said.

Chen—who has been pressing for a face-to-face meeting with Apple executives—said that the corporation should be actively pressing the Beijing regime to end abuses such as forced abortion.
