China’s One–Child Policy The Governments Massive Crime Against Women And Unborn Babies Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, And Human Rights Committee on Foreign Affairs House of Representatives Nothing in human history compares to the magnitude of China’s 33-year assault on women and children. Today in China, rather than being given maternal care, pregnant women, without birth-al-lowed permits, are hunted down and forcibly aborted. They are mocked, belittled, and humiliated. There are no single moms in China, except those who somehow evade the family planning cadres and conceal their pregnancy. For over three decades, brothers and sisters have been illegal; a mother has absolutely no right to protect her unborn baby from state-sponsored violence. Over the years, I have chaired 29 congressional human rights hearings focused in whole or in part on China’s one-child-per-couple policy. At one, the principal witness, Wuijan, a Chinese student attending a U.S. university, testified how her child was forcibly murdered by the overnment. She said, and I quote, in part, ‘‘The room was full of moms who had just gone through a forced abortion. Some moms were crying. Some moms were mourning. Some moms were screaming. And one mom was rolling on the floor with unbearable pain.’’ Then Wuijan said it was her turn, and through her tears she described what she called her ‘‘journey in hell.’’
