China: forced late-term abortion documented by new social media

Catholic World News - November 03, 2010

A report by an Al Jazeera journalist documenting a late-term forced abortion has been posted on the Chinese version of Twitter. Xiao Ai Ying was eight months pregnant with her second child when the forced abortion took place.

“There were many men surrounding my wife,” said Xiao’s husband. “They held her arms behind her back, pushed her head against the door, kicked her stomach and I don’t know if they were trying to give her a miscarriage, right there and then.” Chinese police then confined Xiao to the hospital where the forced abortion took place.
