Forced abortions now part of ethnic cleansing in Chinese province

pregnant and ChinaAmericans are being urged to express their opposition to violence being committed against a Chinese minority ethnic group.

Reports have been released on China's persecution of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang. Over a million incarcerated; women forcibly aborted, forced to have IUDs inserted; men and women sterilized without consent – all to reduce the population of the minority ethnic group.

Much of the aforementioned injustices came to light recently with reports from Associated Press and the Jamestown Foundation. Reggie Littlejohn heads Women's Rights Without Frontiers, an organization geared toward the protection of women and girls in China.

"Even though we've known this in bits and pieces [that] the Chinese government was continuing to forcibly abort Uyghur women and sterilize them, these reports documented how very, very systematic and widespread these practices are," Littlejohn explains.

Late last month, The Jamestown Foundation reported on the practice put in place by the Chinese government in order to eradicate the Uyghur peoples from existence. The CCP's plan, according to that report, is aimed at the rapid assimilation of the Uyghur group into the "Chinese Nation-Race."

It's so serious, says Littlejohn, that Americans ought to be outraged – and her organization has posted an online petition offering an opportunity to express their feelings.

"That is a petition against forced abortion, and it started out a petition against forced abortion under [China's] one-child policy," she explains. "But under the two-child policy, they're continuing to forcibly abort women – and especially in Xinjiang, [among] the Uyghurs."

Littlejohn hopes to deliver the signed petitions to the Chinese Embassy in Washington. At some point, it's expected China will take similar action on the citizens of Hong Kong.
