Free Chen, Free His Wife and Family, Free China and Free the Children in the Womb from Forced Abortion.
Its pretty sad that the late great USA has allowed itself to become indebted to a brutal dictatorship. I remember when we were that shining city on a hill. Its going to be a long hard slog getting back up that hill.
