China (PRC)Women in China are being lined up for abortions at the government's insistence despite claims of change, a congressional panel reports.

OneNewsNow reports often on China's repressive population controls and now the Congressional Executive Commission on China has released its 2017 report, which documents that forced abortion is still continuing under China's newer two-child policy that went into effect two years ago.

Reggie Littlejohn of Women's Rights Without Frontiers, which documents China's abuses, recalls that China claimed they had scrapped the earlier one-child restriction.

"And think that they were deliberately trying to send a message out to the world," says Littlejohn, "that they had gotten rid of all coercive population control, which is not true."

The report also states it's still illegal for unmarried women in China to have babies, reports that children are still being aborted, and warns that any violations mean forced abortions. Any illegal child means a fine for the family and that child will not receive an education or government jobs.

The secondary importance of the report, says Littlejohn, is to remind people that China still violates its own people in the name of reducing population, something that is already costing the nation a great deal economically.
