    Chinese woman forced to abort for violating one-child policy

    Beijing: The family of a woman forced to undergo an abortion because she ran afoul of China's one-child policy has accepted a cash settlement, apparently ending a controversy that caused a public uproar and embarrassed the government.

    Feng Jianmei's husband, Deng Jiyuan, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the family accepted the settlement of 70,600 yuan ($11,200) because they wanted to return to a normal life.

    Feng was beaten by local officials and forced to abort her baby last month, seven months into her pregnancy, because she did not have 40,000 yuan ($6,300) to pay the fine for having a second child.

    Local authorities have often violently imposed abortions and sterilizations in an effort to meet birth quotas set by Beijing, but photos of Feng lying on a hospital bed with the blood-covered baby, reportedly stillborn after a chemical injection, set off a public outpouring of sympathy and outrage after they were posted online. The incident renewed criticism against China's tough family planning rules.

    Chinese authorities issued a rare apology for the incident, fired two officials and sanctioned five others.

    Deng, a villager from central China's Shaanxi province, said his family is "neither satisfied nor dissatisfied" with the amount of the settlement.

    "It has never been about the money. As ordinary people, we can no longer take the pressure from all sides of the society," he said.

    Deng and his family were labeled as traitors by fellow townspeople when he tried to get outside attention to the family's plight. The man later went into hiding before he made it to Beijing to seek legal help.

    Deng said the family still wishes for another child.

    I concur. And as is apparent in your source, public opinion within China shows the same disgust at what was done as I do.

    Then why two threads dedicated to the same topic?

    Get reloaded, then come back and fire again.

    This is inhuman & barbaric act. They are treating it's own citizens like slave. This sort of actions can not be from a civilized country.

    everyone agree force aboration is wrong, but you are goiing over your head by saying "They are treating it's own citizens like slave" because force aboration are VERY rare now in china, likely the local offical try to meet the quota and do something stupid as this. in china if the couple get a 2nd child, they just pay a hefty fine, and if they work at government office they might get fired, that usually enough to keep people from additional child. also due to raising economy, jobs etc, most couple has full time job, which mean less time to take care the children, so they prefer less kids. and when force aboration do happen it tend to get on news pretty quick, and the local family planers offical usually are not stupid to do something like this.

    china has its own issues, but so does everycountry on earth. i just read MSNBC, where 20,000 indian kids was saved from child labor.

    Rather than forcing to abort they may have punished them with transportation :sad:

    Maybe you didn' know that Chinese official news agency Xinhua covered the whole story.

    Typical fantasy by Indian posters.

    Why would CPC bash itself?

    This glorious mission of China bashing only lies on the shoulders of you people, only you people have the skills and passion to accomplish something like that.

    But double threads won't help, Please keep up your spirit and keep on digging, there must be something fresh.
