Did avril abort diamonds child
The current national Population and Family Planning Law stipulates that governments should not infringe on people's personal rights and property when conducting family planning.
Gu Xiulian, former chairwoman of the All-China Women's Federation, said at a press conference in 2005 that forced abortions are illegal and a work code of the family planning authorities also bans the detention and assault of women who breach the policy.
Punishment, if required, will be made according to local regulations.
Feng Jianmei, 23, from Zhenping county in Ankang was forced to the hospital and given an injection to kill her unborn baby on June 2 after her family failed to pay a 40,000-yuan (,320) fine, according to her family.
Online posts about Feng's forced abortion have triggered a torrent of criticism directed at the Zhenping government and sparked debate about the national family planning policy.
The family planning policy was introduced in 1979 to curb negative impacts of the growing population on the country's economy, society, environment and resources.
"They did not notify us until several days before the injection, when they asked us to bring 40,000 yuan before the deadline they set, which we failed to do," he said.
Neither the township nor county government involved in the case was available for comment Wednesday.
Zhang told the Global Times that he has received letters from some 20 women forced to have abortions nationwide since he posted about Feng's experience on his microblog.
"Fines for families with extra children have become a major source of profit for family planning authorities," said He Yafu, an independent demographer.
The fines, dubbed "social fostering fees," allow wealthy families to have multiple children at the cost of poorer women being forced to have abortions, he said.
The couple has a 6-year-old daughter and is not entitled to a second child based on their situation and the country's family planning policy, according to the announcement released Tuesday.
The bureau alerted the couple about obtaining required documentation in March, including Feng's hukou, which is necessary for a second child application.On October 9, 2017, at Convocation, North America's largest weekly gathering of Christian students, Michelle Williams, American recording artist, shared her faith, her success journey and led students in worship.
