Sweeping Forced Abortions Used in Regime’s Birth Control Enforcement

Radio Free Asia | Apr 23, 2007 

Recently, governments in Shandong and Guangxi Provinces are forcing pregnant women to abort their babies. Among these pregnant women, some of them are in the late stages of their pregnancy.

After being injected with drugs, a Christian who was seven months pregnant gave birth to a dead child on April 18. The nine month old fetus of another woman did not move for 48 hours after she was forcibly injected with drugs. Birth Control Departments and hospitals in Guangxi Province refuse to respond to the reporter’s questions about the forced abortions.

Illegal Late Term Abortions

According to information from the China Aid Association released on April 17, in Texas in the United States, a large scale mandatory abortion program is being carried out in Baise City, Shanxi Province in China. In the People’s Hospital in Youjiang District, Baise City alone, there were 41 pregnant women being forcibly injected with abortion drugs on that day. Wei Linrong, a Christian who was seven months pregnant was one of them. On the morning of April 17, ten officials from the Baise City Birth Control Commission broke into Wei’s home. They kidnapped Wei to the Youjiang People’s Hospital and forcibly injected her with an abortion drug. Our reporter called Wei’s husband, Pastor James Liang on April 18 and learned that Wei gave birth to a dead boy. Liang told the reporter that Wei was given the injection at 11 a.m. on the April 17 and had a miscarriage at 6 a.m. on the April 18. Liang didn’t know what kind of injection Wei was given. After giving her the injection, the fetus was left to die slowly in the uterus. Liang and Wei already have a child. Liang told the reporter the pregnancy was an accident. They didn’t mean to violate the government’s birth control policy.

He Caigan was another victim in the same hospital. She was nine-months pregnant with her first baby. The Baise City birth control department claimed that because she had not turned 18 and did not have a marriage certificate, they forced her to give up her baby. According to He, the hospital didn’t tell her what drug was used. The hospital staff put two injections into the fetus’s head. The fetus did not move for 48 hours after the injections. She said: “I was scared. I closed my eyes when they injected the drugs. After the injections, the baby kicked and moved continuously for 20 minutes and then stopped moving. It hadn’t moved since then.” She wanted the baby but said she couldn’t do anything since it was the government’s decision. She also saw another woman in the same hospital who was nine months into her pregnancy being injected with an abortion drug as well.

Hospital Denies Accusations

Our reported called the Youjiang People’s Hospital on the April 18 to inquire about Wei and He’s situation.

Reporter: The Hospital forced 41 pregnant women to abort. How come a nine month pregnancy was still forcibly aborted?

Staff: Who told you that? We don’t abort those who are due soon.

Reporter: What about Wei Linrong? She was seven months into her pregnancy. She was injected with an abortion drug and gave birth to a dead baby boy this morning.

Staff: Why don’t you come to the hospital and see for yourself. I am not obligated to answer your question.

Reporter: Did the Birth Control Commission send anyone to the hospital?

Staff: Yes, there was a group of them.

Reporter: Are they stationed there?

Staff: Yes. You have to come over here if you have any more questions.

Another Twelve Women Injected in One Hour

A close friend of Wei Linrong told the reporter: “This [forced abortion] was arranged by the Birth Control office. They often send people to force civilians to go to the hospital for abortions.” In the one hour while the reporter was trying to gather information from various government officials, the Youjiang People’s Hospital forcibly injected another dozen pregnant women with abortion drugs. In Laizhou City, Shandong province, a 39-year-old Christian, Xu Hui, who was accidentally pregnant with her second child was also forced by the government to abort her baby. She was six months pregnant.

Schools up safety by adding cameras sparking Big Brother Concerns

Inside Bay Area | Apr 21, 2007

“A lot of us had to read ‘1984,’ and a lot of us are concerned about Big Brother watching us….”

Officials hope equipment will deter vandalism, crime

Pranksters, vandals and bullies: Smile — you may be on candid camera while committing your latest criminal act on campus.

More schools are starting to install security cameras on their campuses in an effort to deter criminal activity.

Aragon High School in San Mateo received approval from the school district trustees Thursday to install motion-activated security cameras after experiencing a rash of vandalism, and the San Mateo County Community College District is placing cameras in building entrances at all three campuses.

Furthermore, some schools in the Bay Area have had surveillance cameras for a number of years, including Terra Nova High School in Pacifica and San Rafael High.

One of the main reasons schools have put in cameras is to scare and catch vandals. But in light of what happened Monday at Virginia Tech, some schools also are looking at them as another way to decrease violence on their campuses.

“Given the events that happened in Virginia, it’s obvious Aragon needs to be prepared,” Aragon Principal Kirk Black said Thursday night to theschool board.

The eight cameras will be placed in public areas where there has been a lot of vandalism, such as corridors, the courtyard, computer labs and around the weight room. Aragon’s Parent Teacher Student Association is paying for a majority of the nearly $10,000 project because the school district is short on money.

After recent vandalism at the school, PTSA president Mike Loy said, parents were adamant about bringing more security on campus.

Vandals spray-painted “2006” all over the school one night, he said. After it was cleaned up the following day, Loy said the vandals came back the next night and did the same thing.

School board President Robert Griffin said he would like to see cameras eventually installed at all campuses, once the district has the funding.

“I can see this being helpful for discipline issues and all sorts of things,” he said.

But Aragon sophomore Douglas Bell, who did an informal survey of the student body, said some students are upset about having cameras watching them.

While some students he talked to were positive about having the surveillance, others said it’s an invasion of privacy and the money could be spent on better things.

“A lot of us had to read ‘1984,’ and a lot of us are concerned about Big Brother watching us,” he said.

The San Mateo County Community College District’s colleges have had a number of incidents that have prompted the decision to install cameras linked to intrusion alarms, said Rick Bennett, executive director of construction management.

“We have had vandalism. We have had theft. We have a lot of emergencies that we want to be ready for,” he said.

When classes aren’t in session, people use the campuses as dumping grounds, leaving things such as old furniture and trash. Several years ago, someone even dumped a body at Canada College, he said. Furthermore, people often plow through the campus fields with four-wheel-drive vehicles, Bennett said. Years ago, a man came into the College of San Mateo bookstore and held up the staff at gunpoint, he said.

At Terra Nova High School, where cameras were installed a couple of years ago, there were similar problems with trash being dumped on campus and vandalism, Jefferson Union High School District Superintendent Mike Crilly said.

On numerous occasions in the past, he said, Terra Nova officials have found refrigerators and couches dumped on the campus when they returned to school Monday after a weekend.

But since the cameras were put in, the school has had fewer problems, Crilly said.

The cameras, he said, also have helped with disciplinary issues, allowing administrators to play back fights between students.

But Crilly pointed out that cameras can only do so much and likely wouldn’t stop a shooter from coming onto a campus.

He said he would be hesitant about having too much surveillance at schools.

“I would hate to see our schools get to a point where they have cameras and metal detectors, but you have to be concerned about safety,” he said.

Amero Agenda Admitted On CNBC

This video highlights a very serious concern which none of our media is looking into. The Amero is being looked at as the defacto currency of the North American Community (or Union).
