Littlejohn: China lied and media went along

hand with ultrasound wandNews that China has dropped its two-child policy has turned out to be false news from the communist nation and false hope for human rights.

For many years China's authoritarian government has overseen a one-child policy for families, forcing women to abort additional pregnancies and even destroying their homes and firing them from government jobs if they declined.

But the one-child policy threatened the future population, so China expanded it to two children, and it was announced recently that the newest policy was being abolished.

Reggie Littlejohn of Women's Rights Without Frontiers tells OneNewsNow, however, it's not true.

"We're not saying that China will never end this," she reports. "We're saying that they haven't ended it yet, that we need to continue to press them to end it."

Media reports that have been proven wrong, says Littlejohn, do a "disservice" to the ongoing demand for more freedom for Chinese families.

In fact, there is a movement to demand Chinese couples have two children.

"There is a think tank that floated the idea earlier this month of the creation of a procreation fund in which couples of child-bearing age will be forced to pay if they have fewer than two children," says Littlejohn.

Even though such a policy would allow more children, women could be forced to abort if they become pregnant with another child.
