Chinese Christian discusses police repression, 1-child policy

CWN - January 18, 2011

In an interview with Aid to the Church in Need, Bob Fu, a student leader at Tiananmen Square who subsequently became a Protestant pastor and fled China, discusses the realities of police repression and forced abortion in the People’s Republic of China. Fu is the founder and president of the China Aid Association.

“When you want to have your first child after marriage,” he recalls, “you are required to get a pregnancy permission card-- a yellow card before your wife can legally get pregnant-- otherwise you are arrested and are forced to have an abortion.”
