SCANDAL: FORCED ABORTION IN CHINA CALLS FOR REFORM

CHINA APOLOGISES TO PREGNANT WOMAN
FORCED TO HAVE ABORTION AT 7 MONTHS
www.dailymail.co.uk - Officials have apologised to a Chinese woman who was forced to have an abortion while seven months pregnant and have suspended three people responsible for the incident. The move came just days after shocking photographs emerged on the web showing the mother, Feng Jianmei, lying next to her blood-covered baby minutes after the procedure took place. Officials have apologised in a move to allay public anger over the case, which has triggered renewed criticism of China's widely hated one-child limit. 
Designed to control the country's exploding population, the policy has led to violent and forced abortions and sterilizations, as local authorities try to meet birth quotas set by Beijing. In this latest case, Feng, 23, told local media that she was forceably injected with a chemical to induce an abortion and her child was stillborn 36 hours later at a hospital in Shaanxi province. Local officials said they were investigating the incident, as Chinese law prohibits abortions beyond six months.

The grisly photographs, which were taken by Feng's sister, have shocked anti-abortion groups in China - and fury is spreading around the world. Because she already had a five-year-old daughter, said Feng, local birth-control authorities ordered her to pay a fine of £4,000. She didn't have the money, she said, so a team from the local family planning authority in Shannxi province came to collect her from her home and take her to hospital for the forced abortion. 
Recounting the horror, Feng said she told the family planning department she could not pay the fine because her mother-in-law needed money for cancer treatment. It was then the authorities began their action against her. She was placed under arrest. Feng was dragged out of her relative’s home, carried and shoved into a van that headed straight to a hospital on June 2. She was then beaten, blindfolded, thrown on a bed, and forced to sign a document. At the hospital she was restrained and given an injection that would be lethal to the foetus. None of her family was allowed to be present during the traumatic time, she said.

A pregnant woman who was dragged to a hospital by authorities and forced to have an abortion has enraged Chinese and sparked an online flurry of debate over whether it is time to end China’s draconian one-child family planning policy. Feng, who was in her seventh month of pregnancy, said she was forced to have an abortion because she could not pay the $6,300 fine for a second child. Pregnancy is not just the result of sex relationships, it is also the result of Divine Will. One cannot violate the Lord’s law, so they must suffer the consequences of this crime.

WHAT DO THE VEDIC TEACHINGS TELL US? 
Abortion brings a very negative karma. The child in the womb is a soul, a living being destined for a human body. This is true from the moment of conception.  “The Personality of Godhead said: Under the supervision of the Supreme Lord and according to the result of his work, the living entity, the soul, is made to enter into the womb of a woman through the particle of male semen to assume a particular type of body.” (S.B.  3.31.1)  If one has sex, then one must take responsibility for raising any child that is produced - or at least see to it that the child is raised by someone. One cannot escape suffering by committing sins. … Legalizing abortion has not at all decreased the number of unwanted children in the world, or the number of mistreated children. In fact, easily available birth control and abortion has gone along with an increase in illegitimate and battered children.
