Kim Jong Un with kidsNorth Korean women who escape their hellish country only to be sent back often endure more than prison camps and torture.

Olivia Enos of The Heritage Foundation says if they are pregnant, they are forcibly aborted.

North Koreans often escape to China but are sent back by Chinese authorities working in cooperation with their North Korean counterparts. According to Enos, a baby that is half-Chinese and half-North Korean is not viewed as legitimate. 

“They see it essentially like the aftermath of what was a traitor's decision by an individual to go and flee the regime,” she says. “And so they kill the babies.”

Enos, who studies Asian countries for Heritage, says she knows of a North Korean woman who fled three times but was sent back after each escape. After one escape, she was forced to undergo an abortion without anesthesia when the unborn child was very far along.

That same woman, Enos says, was finally able to escape to South Korea and is now a mother.
