So horrible! A mom came forward with the most heartbreaking story of loss after a team of 20 officials broke into her home and forcefully dragged her to the hospital to abort her second child.
Liu Xinwen, 33, a mom from Shandong Province, China revealed a horrible and shocking story. She explained that she was forced to have an late term abortion due to China’s one-child policy. She and her husband Zhou Guoqiang already have one 10-year-old son, so officials kicked down the door to her family’s home and took her to the hospital to deliver the lethal injection that would kill her unborn baby.
Forced Abortion While Six Months Pregnant Due To China ‘One-Child’ Policy
Mr. Zhou claimed that 20 officials from Shandong Province Family Planning Commission kicked in the door of his family’s home to take his wife away to the hospital, reports Sky News.
He said his wife was forced to sign papers saying that she agreed to have the abortion, and that when she refused to sign them, the couple was threatened with arrest. He told Sky News that he was held down while the officials took his wife away, and they would not tell him where they were taking her.
Zhou was able to eventually find the hospital his wife was taken to, 5 hours later. He said he arrived minutes after his wife was given a lethal injection to abort the baby.
The baby died in the womb, and Li Xinwen gave birth to the child — a boy — the next day. In a particularly horrific image, the child was put inside an orange bucket next to her bed.
China’s 1-child policy was instituted in 1979 and was intended to help with the country’s population control. “The policy is supposed to be enforced through financial penalties and not forced abortions. But in some provinces, over-zealous local officials, keen to keep within their birth quotas, break the law and terminate pregnancies by force,” reports Sky News.
“They don’t have any humanity. They are not humans.” Liu Xinwen said of how officials acted. “They must have children and parents too. But they don’t have any conscience. This is how China is.”
Grieving Mother’s Message To Her Lost Baby
In an absolutely heartbreaking video interview, the mother sobbed, “I miss him. I didn’t get to see him. I would be even more upset if I had seen him.”
She told her lost baby:
Baby, I’m sorry. We were not meant to be. You rest in peace in heaven. We will pray for you. We hope your next life is better.
Our thoughts are with the family at this difficult time.
