A War on Maternity Waged in the Name of Mother Earth



I often come across persons who attempt to justify forced abortion, sterilization, and contraception because “We (that is, human beings) are destroying the planet”. They view people as pollution, and argue that it is necessary to violate reproductive rights to protect the planet from the beings who are despoiling it. Yet that logic is intrinsically flawed. Let us put it this way. Which of these do not belong: nitrous oxide, methane, Homo sapiens, or carbon …

A Veiled Critique of the One-Child Policy



This article was originally published in the Washington Times on April 7, 2015. In outline, Mo Yan’s new novel, “Frog,” sounds subversive enough: A jilted Chinese midwife turns agent of the state. She is relentless in her pursuit of women who have conceived “illegal” second children. She is pitiless in coercing them one and all into terminations. But 30 years (and thousands of forced abortions) later Gugu — the midwife in question — has a …

Sterilization Camps in India



Anne Roback Morse gave an address on March 13, 2015 at the United Nations surrounding the Commission on the Status of Women at a panel titled, “Coerced Sterilizations, Abortions, and Reproductive Rights.” The following remarks are based on excerpts from that address. Last November, 83 women were sterilized in a matter of hours at a sterilization camp in the east Indian state of Chhattisgarh. At least a dozen women died from the unhygienic conditions, and …

Violent population control continues in China



Contrary to recent reports, China’s population control policy still systematically enforces a policy of coerced abortion, sterilization, and child abandonment. The propaganda, coercion, and violence used by the Chinese Family Planning police continues to violate the rights of Chinese women, men, and their unborn children. In November 2013, the Chinese government changed the regulations to the policy: couples in which both persons are only children are eligible to apply for a second-birth permit. Media coverage …

Chinese Abortion “Doctor” Kills Her Own Grandchildren, One Grandchild Miraculously Survives Abortion Attempt



True story #3 in PRI’s ongoing series of “How I Survived Population Control” These stories are part of PRI’s 2014 End of Year Campaign. Please give generously to continue our vital work together.

The UN Continues to Push a Radical Abortion Agenda



The new UN report on women makes for grim reading, if you can decipher it. The reason that you may have trouble doing so is that the report, called the World Survey on the Role of Women in Development 2014: Gender Equality and Sustainable Development, is written in a kind of code. Words and expressions are used that sound reasonable—what could be wrong with “gender equality,” for example?—but which, in the femspeak used by the …
