Although the issue of denuclearization was the biggest topic during the meeting of President Donald Trump and North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un, President Donald Trump told the media that he did bring up human rights abuses with the leader of the Communist nation.

That President Trump brought up human rights abuses is critically important given the horrific reports of forced abortions in North Korea. Abortions and infanticide are reportedly rampant and the Asian nation especially in the gulag prison system.

“It was discussed. It will be discussed more in the future — human rights,” Trump said. “It was discussed. It was discussed relatively briefly compared to denuclearization. Well, obviously, that’s where we started and where we ended. But they will be doing things, and I think he wants to do things.”

The reports of forced abortions are part of a 2014 United Nations investigation.

Harrowing stories of forced abortions and corpses fed to dogs came out of North Korea ahead of a historic summit between its dictator and President Donald Trump. Two defectors recently spoke to CBN News about the abuses that they experienced and witnessed in the north Asian country.

Heeon-A Ji escaped to China three times but was sent back to North Korea before she eventually escaped to freedom, according to the report.

Ji said she watched many women being forced to abort their unborn babies in prison labor camps.

“Pregnant women were forced into harsh labor all day,” she said. “At night, we heard pregnant mothers screaming and babies died without ever being able to see their mothers.”

Bo Bin Kim, who also defected from North Korea, said she was forced to abort her unborn baby without an anesthetic.

“My misery did not end with being sold into human trafficking situation,” she told the Christian news outlet. “I was arrested by the Chinese authorities and forcibly repatriated. Then once I was returned to North Korea, I was brutalized by the North Korean state officials, tortured. I was forced to have an abortion without the use of anesthetics.”

To survive in the labor camps, Ji said they ate grass and tree bark. She said they were tortured and some people who died had their bodies fed to dogs.
