An international coalition that opposes forced abortion and sexual slavery says China's look to the future will perhaps come at the expense of preborn children.
China has announced its new five-year plan, the final product of which will be revealed in March of next year. What has been approved so far concerns family planning, or optimizing the birth quality in order to improve the country's population.
Reggie Littlejohn of Women's Rights Without Frontiers says it has serious eugenics overtones.
"China has a history of putting couples through a premarital exam, and some couples who apparently were not deemed to improve the quality of the population for whatever reason have been required to agree to permanent contraception in order to obtain a marriage license," Littlejohn relays.
The elimination of those considered to be inferior people has been a part of Communist China's effort to improve the race both in the past and in present. Littlejohn does not know if that includes the automatic forced abortion of handicapped children in the womb.
"I have heard credible reports that in the case of handicapped unborn babies that the woman would certainly be encouraged," the women’s right advocate continues. "I don't know if she would be forcibly aborted, but the standard would be to terminate the pregnancy."
There are also reports that China will appoint and pair off what the government considers to be superior men and women to produce the limit of two children in the direction of improving the quality of the Chinese race.
