Photo of baby aborted in China at 9 months in forced abortion circulates on Internet, sparks outrage

WARNING: VERY GRAPHIC

LINYI CITY, Shandong Province, China, April 3, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A chilling photograph circulating in China shows the body of a 9-months-gestation baby submerged in a bucket of water, apparently a victim of the country’s one-child policy.

Digital Journal reports that the photograph, in which the head and arm of a child can be seen underwater in a large red bucket on the floor, was posted to the Chinese web services company Baidu before it was circulated on Weibo, the country’s version of Twitter, last week.

The abortion appears to have taken place on March 26 after Chinese family planning police in the town of Moshan hunted down the family because the couple already had one child.

According to English reports regarding the original post, the pregnant mother was forcibly held down as she was given an injection to induce labor, after which the baby “even gave a cry when it came out,” but was left in a bucket to drown.

In response to the photo, Reggie Littlejohn of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, which opposes China’s one-child policy, confirmed that late-term abortions and infanticide are common means of enforcing China’s one-child population rule.

“These violent procedures can happen up to the ninth month of pregnancy,” Littlejohn told LifeSiteNews.com. “Sometimes the women themselves die along with their full term babies. Forced abortion is China’s war against women. It is official government rape.”

“Late term babies are injected with poison in their skulls or drowned in buckets,” she continued. “If the Chinese Communist Party wants to be a respected member of the international community, it must stop forced abortion and infanticide.”

The image and story has reportedly drawn intense outrage across China through Weibo, which has some 260 million users, since the photo began circulating on Thursday.

One commentator cited by Beijing Shots and hailing from Linyi City claimed to have witnessed such measures carried out against unborn children himself, and confirmed that Chinese officials “pounce on mothers-to-be like vampires who see blood.”

“In the hospital, a pregnant woman was dragged by several ruggedly muscular men into the operation room and did not relax their vigilance until she was injected with the drug. They said, ‘Another one accomplished.’ But that pregnant woman was near term! And her family did not even know she was kidnapped here. I later learned that she was captured when she was at a fair,” wrote the commentator.

Littlejohn pointed out that the abortion allegedly took place in Linyi, the same city where forced-abortion opponent and human rights activist Chen Guangcheng still languishes under house arrest.

“This recent incident demonstrates that conditions in Linyi have not improved,” she said.

Although China “has tried to convince the world that it has softened the one-child policy,” said Littlejohn, “this incident demonstrates that this is pure propaganda.”

“This is the greatest violation of women’s rights in the world and it must be stopped.”

And this the corrupt, disgusting regime that leftists like Tom Friedman and Obama himself want the US to emulate.

The CCP is a force of horror, evil and tyranny in this world and I'm sick to death of the left telling me how the US needs to be more like the sick and cruel CCP “for our own good.”

Prayers for that tiny child murdered by her government.

PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL

Sancte Michael Archangele,
defende nos in proelio; contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium.
Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur:
tuque, Princeps militiae Caelestis,
satanam aliosque spiritus malignos,
qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo,
divina virtute in infernum detrude.
Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen.

Pope Leo XIII









Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

.... I thought this was actually the norm in China ....

.... they have the so called "One Child Policy" and in addition ..... they kill most female babies ...... my guess is this is what the aftermath of the policies looks like and is a common sight in birthing facilities and is, of course, for the so called common good of the people of China.

Folks .... We have heard it said so many times that they kill female babies in China ....... this is probably the ugly image of the deed ..... and yes .... a visual image says more than a thousand words that an activist could ever speak. It is good to remember that ..... words do mean things.

Unfortunately .... there has been very little outrage when the words are spoken. But .... when you see the image.... you will never forget it. Yet they are both referring the same thing.

These pictures need to be sent to the president’s daughters—so they can actually see what their father endorses—murder of children.

I have a little girl adopted from China and yes that child in the bucket is a horrific picture , and I don’t want to give out to much info on my daughter but the time stamp on that picture is just about the same as my daughters birthday, 11 years earlier. So as we were having cake and ice cream, This was happening! That could have been my little girl! (Even though it’s not it’s still pure evil, just saying it was so personal to me.) It also makes me wonder how my daughter was lucky enough to make it to the orphanage. All I know is that she was believed to be born in the country side and dropped off secretly at a police station. There were at least some good people that got her to us a year later.

Um... Are these the same folks who champion partial birth abortions? That’s like my vegan acquaintance who wears leather shoes. When I watched the movie 300 (one of my faves), I shuddered at the mound of infant skulls. The thought then occurred to me, are we any better? I guess it is like everything else, if it is done in such a manner that no one must witness it, then it is ok. Makes me think of my young daughter who thought hunting was appalling until we discussed over- populations of animals starving slowly in the winter. At least I got through to one.. sigh.

When we were in China adopting our daughter, elderly people would come up to us and say “lucky baby” in English. I would say “lucky mommy” because I was so lucky to have a beautiful baby. I thought they said it because the baby got to go to the U.S. Sometimes I wonder if it was because the baby got to survive. It was about the only English many of them knew, “lucky baby”. This picture makes me so sad.

I had tears as I read this. I do believe, or at least hope it is true, that most Chinese people do value human life demonstrated by the mother’s will to fight. This is sick, that poor baby had her life taken away by these monsters. You know what, if my take on the Chinese people valuing life is correct, if the Chinese people had the right to keep and bear arms, this would not be happening. Give me 5 minutes with these people and a baseball bat.

We can’t. But at least for now, women are not forced to have abortions in this country.

Each year, a million women in the U.S. abort babies voluntarily.

Yes I realize that. I said what I did because I am grateful that women who don’t want abortions are not forced to have them in this country.

China also has voluntary abortions. In addition, they also have FORCED abortions. The crime against the babies is no greater in either case but think about the women.

A women that wants her baby is chased, held down and forced to deliver her near preterm baby. Her baby is born alive and then drowned in a bucket.

The outcome for the child is no different between a forced and voluntary abortion but the horror for the mother forced to have an abortion cannot even be comprehended in my mind.

Oops. Correction needed. “Preterm” should say “full-term”.
