Abortion protagonists favour forced abortion when it suits them

ANYTHING BUT 'PRO-CHOICE'

The actions of Planned Parenthood and the population controllers prove conclusively that they are anything but "pro-choice." They are now irrevocably on record as favoring mandatory abortion and forced sterilisation for women who "breed excessively." In other words, PP and its contemptible ilk obviously favor not just 'abortion on demand,' but also 'abortion on command!' Here are some quotes which betray their true feelings. They have been far more careful in recent years in saying such things in public. 

If parenthood is a right, population control is impossible. If parenthood is only a privilege, and if parents see themselves as trustees of the germ plasm and guardians of the rights of future generations, then there is hope for mankind."
Garrett Hardin. Parenthood: Right or Privilege? Science Magazine. Quoted in Robert G. Marshall. Bayonets and Roses: Comprehensive Pro-Life Political Action Guide. 1976

[This panel recommends] (1) mandatory abortion for any unmarried girl found to be within the first three months of pregnancy, and (2) mandatory sterilisation of any such girl giving birth out of wedlock for a second time."
The 1969 White House Conference on Hunger, panel entitled "Pregnant and Nursing Women and Infants," headed by Planned Parenthood's Dr. Alan Guttmacher and Dr. Charles U. Lowe of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare's National Institutes of Health (NIH)

"Socialism should make it possible to regulate the reproduction of human beings. We should be able to produce human beings under a quota system, just as we produce bicycles and tons of steel."
Vice Premier Chan Muhua, Director, Chinese Family Planning Board, 1979

"I am not afraid to stick by my belief that only those couples who have the necessary material possessions and sources of income to ensure an economically secure and safe cradle should allow a pregnancy to progress to term."
Letter from Dr. Julius Adlam. Medical News, April 6, 1977. Described in Nancy B. Spannaus, Molly Hammett Kronberg, and Linda Everett (Editors). How to Stop the Resurgence of Nazi Euthanasia Today.

"I am a little discouraged and irritated at the welfare recipient families growing in size all the time. Those of us who work and pay taxes all the time shouldn't have to pay for these kids."
Hilmar G. Moore, chairman of the Board of Human Resources and Chairman of Richmond, Texas, in a February 27, 1980 UPI press report.

"[We recommend] compulsory abortion of out-of-wedlock pregnancies ... payments to encourage abortions ... and compulsory sterilisation for those who have had two children ... Coercion [in population programs] may become necessary. Such force may be required in areas where the pressure is the greatest, possibly in India and China."
Planned Parenthood panel, quoted by Richard D. Glasow, Ph.D. "Ideology Compels Fervid PPFA Abortion Advocacy." National Right to Life News, March 28, 1985

"I can't imagine any reasonably responsible person arguing against the abortion of mongols ... If we could tell what foetuses are going to be affected with cancer in their 40s and 50s, I would be for aborting them now."
Dr. Cecil B. Jacobson, Chief of the Reproductive Genetics Unit of George Washington University Hospital

CHINA'S FORCED ABORTION POLICY

The Chinese government introduced a one-child policy in 1979 to stop population growth. The policy is controversial both within and outside China because of the human rights issues it raises; because of the manner in which the policy has been implemented; and because of concerns about negative economic and social consequences.

The Economist reported in July 2011 that the policy was becoming more stringent:

"BEFORE 1997 they usually punished us by tearing down our houses for breaching the one-child policy...After 2000 they began to confiscate our children." Thus Yuan Chaoren, a villager from Longhui county in Hunan province, describing in Caixin magazine the behaviour of family-planning bureaucrats. According to Caixin, local officials would take "illegal children" and pack them off to orphanages where they were put up for adoption. Foreign adoptive parents paid $3,000-5,000 per child. The bureaucrats collected a kickback."

On October 10th 2010, Xiao Aiying, who was eight months pregnant, was dragged from her home in Siming in southwest China and forced to have an abortion. This is a part of the debate on abortion that the media are largely silent about. Watch the two minute news report above by Al Jazeera's Melissa Chan.

Numerous atrocities have been reported in the Western and Chinese Press but the policy and its enforcement is allowed to continue. Read some of these examples below:

DEMOGRAPHIC NIGHTMARE

Demographers are now concerned that the one child policy has so intensified the Chinese preference for a boy as to have seriously distorted the balance of the sexes in favour of males. The sex ratio at birth (between male and female births) in mainland China reached 117:100 in the year 2000, substantially higher than the natural baseline, which ranges between 103:100 and 107:100. 

According to a report by the State Population and Family Planning Commission, there will be 30 million more men than women in 2020, potentially leading to social instability. The correlation between the increase of sex ratio disparity on birth and the deployment of one child policy would appear to have been caused by the one-child policy.

IT KEEPS GETTING WORSE...

A blind Chinese activist, who was freed from jail last year but remains under strict house arrest, was reportedly beaten senseless after releasing a video that documented his plight.

BUT HAS THEIR FORCED POLICY GONE TOO FAR...

The Telegraph reported on the 4th August 2013, that the official news agency Xinhua said that the Family Planning Commission is studying proposals to lift the ban on a second child, if either parent is an only child. The body's spokesman said aim is to "improve" family policy, confirming leaks to Chinese newspapers that a major shift is in the works. The new rules are expected to come into force early next year, and may be extended to cover all families by 2015. The shift in policy may come too late to avert an ageing shock. The workforce shrank by 3m last year, an inflection point that has come sooner than expected.
