China carried out almost 330 million abortions between 1971 and 2010, according to figures made public by its own Health Ministry before announcing a merger of their activities with those of the National Population and Family Planning.
“Family planning will be strengthened, not weakened,” said Wang Feng, deputy head of the office of public sector reform agency quoted by China News. “After the reform, China will continue its family planning policy,” he the Chinese Secretary General, Ma Kai.
Since the beginning of the 80s, the limit imposed on the number of births to all Chinese is part of its one-child policy for urban residents as determined by the government in Beijing, which according to their own numbers helps the Chinese avoid 400 million births in the world’s most populous country, which had 1.354 million people at the end of 2012.
But abortions were also used for the selective elimination of female fetuses and embryos, which reduced the number tens of millions of women.
The number of abortions was more than 10 million per year between 1982 and 1992, with a peaks of more than 14 million between 1983 and 1991, says the Ministry of Health. The limitation of births brought a large number of forced abortions, that although supposedly banned, are still practiced in many regions of the country.
This past June, the case of a woman forced to abort when she was seven months pregnant caused a scandal and forced the authorities to apologize. But most of forced abortions and abuse committed by government agencies goes without any challenges as China has become the worldwide model for a strong Eugenics campaign that has been slowly but surely implemented in most Western nations.
Much of the propaganda being used to brainwash women and families into opting for not having more than one child originates from the idea that the world is overpopulated, or that women are supposed to neglect their children and family in order to become successful in life. It is also asked of families to leave their children in the hands the government, which through its traditional educational system, manages to destroy all creativity and self-respect in the minds of youngsters.
