The Chinese War on Women: Forced Abortions. Obama and The Left Love That Policy. Why Would They Speak Against Them?
GOP Rep. Chris Smith: “The war on women is very real, and it’s being employed by the Chinese government every day of the week against Chinese women”
Put another way, China offers free birth control.
(CNSNews.com) — Forced abortions by the Chinese government to make citizens comply with its one-child population control policy is the real war on women, Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) said on Thursday. . . .
Smith was asked about the war on women that Democrats claim is being waged by Republicans who oppose portions of the Obama health care law that would require people who oppose abortion to pay for drugs that cause them through insurance plans.
“The war on women is very real, and it’s being employed by the Chinese government every day of the week against Chinese women, including mothers, but also against unborn baby girls who are killed simply because they happen to be female,” Smith said.
“And the number of sex-selection abortions in China has no parallel,” Smith said. “It is the direct consequence of the one-child-per-couple policy, and unfortunately, the Obama administration has given money to the very organization — the (United Nations) population fund — that defends to the hilt the one-child-per-couple policy and says it ought to be replicated around the world.”
According to a 2009 article in China Daily, Chinese data show that 13 million abortions are performed each year, for an average rate of 35,000 a day. . . .
Smith called the Democrat charge “nonsense” and said that the Obama administration should be helping Chen and his battle against the Chinese government’s forced abortion and sterilization policies.
“They ought to be standing firm with Chen Guangcheng and fighting for his asylum and, on an every day basis, be fighting against China’s forced abortion policy,” Smith said.
