Will anything change with China’s new two-child policy? Will abortions go down? Will the assault on life abate?
God commands us to respect life. Let’s pray for China to change this policy and respect life.
China’s new Two-Child Policy continues the same massive crimes against women and children that were committed under the One Child Policy. Xinhua News Agency reported on October 29, 2015 that China will move to a two-child policy for all couples, “abandoning its decades-long one-child policy.”
Characterizing this latest modification as “abandoning” the One-Child Policy is misleading. A two-child policy will not end any of the human rights abuses caused by the One Child Policy, including forced abortion, involuntary sterilization or the sex-selective abortion of baby girls.
Coercion is the core of the policy. Instituting a two-child policy will not end forced abortion or forced sterilization.
