The Shanghi List has reported that a 44-year-old pregnant woman has aborted her baby because her 13-year-old threatened to commit suicide. Last year, Xiao and her husband decided that they wanted to have another child after China “relaxed” its one-child policy; but their daughter, Wen Wen, didn’t respond well to the news of another baby.
Xiao said, “After Wen Wen [Xiao’s first child] learned about my pregnancy, she often said she would jump to her death from a building if we kept the baby. She threw things at home to vent her anger.” Later on Wen Wen threatened to run away from home, skip school and even kill herself.
Tragically, when the couple spotted cut marks on their daughters arm they decided to abort their baby because they were afraid her threats were real. In a news report, a Chinese doctor said, “It is normal for the only child to feel unhappy when parents want a second child. Parents should first communicate with the first child and assure him or her that even if they have another baby, they won’t love him or her less.”
China’s one-child policy has wrecked havoc on women and their families; and driven many toward abortion, infanticide and suicide. As LifeNews previously reported, the policy has resulted in over 400 million abortions and 40 million sex-selection abortions. However, in 2013, the U.S. Department of State’s Trafficking in Person (TIP) report revealed that China has refused to acknowledge that its policy is creating a gender imbalance and fueling trafficking.
Reggie Littlejohn, the president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, explained that the brutal One-Child Policy is largely to blame for many of the problems in China.
She said, “The One Child Policy is the driving force in trafficking. Couples who do not have a son want to obtain a boy through trafficking. Couples who already have a son may want to traffic a girl into their family, to ensure that their son will have a bride when he grows up. In China, the marriage market is on the road to collapse. Because of the pronounced gender imbalance caused by gendercide – the selective abortion of baby girls — there are currently about 37 million more males living in China than females.”
Additionally, just last year, Chinese officials uncovered four child-trafficking rings and arrested more than a thousand people for using websites and instant messaging to sell babies. Unbelievably, a Chinese OBGYN was also convicted for kidnapping and selling infants after telling there parents they were sick in early 2014.
