North Korea’s Kim Jong-un forced mothers to drown newborn babies: U.N. report
washingtontimes.com ^ | 02/21/2014 | Ashish Kumar Sen

North Korea forces women to undergo abortions and young mothers to drown their newborn babies, and has starved and executed hundreds of thousands of detainees at secret prison camps — atrocities that the chairman of a U.N. panel that documented the abuses compares to those of Nazi Germany.

The report documents crimes against humanity, including “extermination, murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape, forced abortions and other sexual violence, persecution on political, religious, racial and gender grounds, the forcible transfer of populations, the enforced disappearance of persons and the inhumane act of knowingly causing prolonged starvation.”

According to witness accounts, North Korean women repatriated from China are forced to undergo abortions because they are believed to be carrying babies conceived by Chinese men. The women are not asked about the fathers’ ethnicity.

“Secondary sources and witness testimonies point to an underlying belief in a ‘pure Korean race’ in the DPRK to which mixed race children (of ethnic Koreans) are considered a contamination of its ‘pureness,’” the report says, referring to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the North’s official name.

One witness said she saw seven women given injections to induce abortions. In most cases, guards at the detention facilities “force either the mother or a third person to kill the baby by drowning it in water or suffocating it by holding a cloth or other item against its face or putting the baby face down so that it cannot breathe,” the report says.

Most of the abortions and infanticides were committed at holding centers, and interrogation and detention centers known as State Security Department (SSD) facilities. A former SSD official explaining the concept of “pure Korean blood” to the commission said having a child who is not “100 percent” Korean makes a woman “less than human.”

the devil reigns in North Korea

Holy Mary Mother of God, I beseech you to take pity on the people suffering in North Korea and to take steps to crush the satanic leadership. St. Michael the ArchAngel defend the people from the satanic leadership and join with Mary in crushing it.

Amen

Hmmmmn.

Yet Michelle Obama is protesting .... what now?

Seems like they protest when abortions are reduced in America, when innocent lives are protected.

Marxism: 100 million dead and counting. Such a lovely political system to bring into the United states.

I wasn’t aware there were different levels of suffering between those who committed major sins/crimes, and those who committed minor sins who died unrepentent, or were simply not christians...

If the western world had any stones, they would at a minimum ostricize China for being NK’s enabler. Brand China with being a willing party to everything that NK does.

Only when NK becomes a liability for China will China take action.

On the military side, I really think we could push the issue to resolution in short order. Simply tell China that if there isn’t varifiabel proof that NK hasn’t scrapped its nukes in 90 days, South Korea and Japan are going nuclear (hundreds of weapons each) and the U.S. will be handing over the plans to the Pershing II, which would be all the range required for either of them to hit Beijing. Then start, diligently and publicly working to make it happen. I would predict PLAN tanks parked in Pyongyang within a month, to install a more suitable government.

They’re just doing it wrong. Once we get the right people in place. I mean if Uncle Joe Stalin only knew what people were doing he’d have set things right, no?

Matthew 10:15, “Truly I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city.”

Matthew 11:23-24, “And you, Capernaum, will not be exalted to heaven, will you? You will descend to Hades; for if the miracles had occurred in Sodom which occurred in you, it would have remained to this day. 24 “Nevertheless I say to you that it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for you.”

Luke 10:13-14, “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles had been performed in Tyre and Sidon which occurred in you, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. 14 But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment than for you,”

Matthew 23:14, “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense you make long prayers; therefore you will receive greater condemnation,” (cf. Mark 12:40; Luke 20:47).

Luke 12:47-48, “And that slave who knew his master’s will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, will receive many lashes, 48 but the one who did not know it, and committed deeds worthy of a flogging, will receive but few. From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.”

John 19:11, “...for this reason he who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.”

So, North Korea is going to be the next undeclared war zone?

Folks, it is time to take a serious look at the Maine Secession movement.

They don't choose to repatriate. They are forcibly repatriated by China, which classifies them as illegal economic migrants rather than refugees.

You wisely prayed to the greatest power while my first reaction was to send in an “OFF” team to take him out. They would have lots of jobs near and far.
Lord hear our prayers.
