Obama to Facilitate Forced Abortions in China

John McCormack links to a BBC report indicating that more Chinese women would like to have more than one child. Beijing's one-child policy, of course, has drawn condemnation from around the world.

According to McCormack:

Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush all refused to fund the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) because the organization helps China execute its one-child policy (and because the UNFPA also funds the occasional unseemly eugenics program). But Barack Obama, like Bill Clinton before him, has pledged to reverse the course of his Republican predecessor and fund the UNFPA. It's somewhat ironic that feminist organizations are the interest groups pushing most strongly for UNFPA funding.

Apparently, if thousands of Chinese women are forced to abort their unborn children--and baby girls, in particular, are targeted for death--well that's just collateral damage in the cause of "women's rights", in the view of groups like NOW. Of course, to be fair, feminists
claim that UNFPA does not directly support forced abortions in China. I'm skeptical that UNFPA equipment and funds do not aid some of the doctors performing forced abortions, but it's indisputable that that the Communist party gives local bureaucrats population control goals to meet. When number of births exceeds the desired limit, the bureaucrats sometimes decide to round up women and abort their children. For example, in April 2007 in Guangxi province, "61 pregnant women were injected with an abortive drug after being dragged to local hospitals".

If Obama funds China's population control program without requiring China to prosecute those performing forced abortions--or, ideally, requiring China to do away with its one-child policy altogether--there will be a lot more
horrifying stories coming out of China--brought to you, in part, by the American taxpayer.

The last thing we'll see on this is Democratic-leftists protesting Obama's pledge on the UNFPA. The progressive-left devalues life and champions moral depravity, not just in the protection of life, but in traditional family values and the sanctity of moral goodness.

This particular Obama policy pledge is truly an abomination, and it's one more reason folks should be concerned about the coming to power of "The One," and reason as well to oppose the nihilist left mercilessly.

OK, I'll be the first to chime in on Donald's latest, where he uses a headline that would put HuffPo to shame.

Here's a list of what this organization DOES do and the issues it supports:

Population Issues
Improving Reproductive Health
Linking Population and Development
Promoting Gender Equality
Advancing Human Rights
Supporting Adolescents and Youth
Making Motherhood Safer
Using Culturally Sensitive Approaches
Preventing HIV Infection
Assisting in Emergencies
Securing Essential Supplies

Geez, these are some horrible, horrible things to be dealing with aren't they Donald.

And, in the middle of your piece, it clearly states:

"Of course, to be fair, feminists claim that UNFPA does not directly support forced abortions in China."

Who's the nihilist again?

Tim: Of course feminists "claim" that U.N. policy doesn't result in forced abortion. The truth is the one-child policy is worse the anyone knows, and by funding it UNFPA facilitates infanticide, much less abortion.

Your tax dollars at work.

Of course forced abortion is horrible.

Donald, if Bush were that incensed about it, then he should cut off all ties with China. THAT would be a statement. Not cutting funding for something that actually does a lot of good work in other countries.

This should be filed under "For further research."

AmPowerBlog said...

No Tim ... you don't cut off relations over an internal Chinese policy. We don't need to FUND it with our tax dollars, but it's all about Bush, not Obama's history of infanticide, right.

Obama doesn't have a history of infanticide. That would make him a criminal. He has a history of voting for abortion rights. There is a difference. Look who's being all morally relevant here when it suits his needs!

By "Bush" I mean whichever Republican president makes their stand here by not funding it, but then denies fundamental human interests in other countries. China, I hate to break it to you, will do their forced abortions with or without hour taxes being used.

Bottom line, there is no clear evidence that even takes place. Bottom line.

I once again was wrong about you Don. I figured you and your right wing buddies would have applauded the aborting of a bunch of little commies. But you need more of them to work in Chinese factories and take American jobs I guess. At least we now know why your side hates birth control. Why pay an American $14 an hour when we have a population explosion of little commies that will work for $14 a month.

We see his venomous vision of abortion in the USA - the communists (his Civilian National Security Force and others) rounding up women and forcing them to have abortions. If he supports in it China - it's what he REALLY wants to see here. Why?? Because the harlot Babylon likes to spill and drink the blood of martyrs. Obama is a murderous beast.

And if anyone says, "No, he just wants to support that policy in China. He doesn't want that power of control over the people of the USA and women here." I have to say, "On what principle he exemplifies by his actions??" And 2, "How blind and deaf and stone cold are you to the truth??"

Tim - The Nazis' policies improved the economy in Germany and so improved the lives of Germans.

Ditto with Mussolini in Italy.

Good deeds do not overcome evil ones.

Therefore, it does not matter whether UNFPA does the things you say they do. That they support China's one-child policy, which necessarily means forced abortions is reason enough not to fund them.

Sigh. So now we must fund any evil because "they'll do it anyway"

Didn't either of you take a basic ethnics class in school?

Hey Donald, I won't stretch the truth nearly as far as you and your theo/neo-con buddies around here but let me tell yah somethin. You know what really contributes to "infanticide" in these countries?

The millions of workers who get paid 10 cents a day to manufacture billions of dollars worth of useless goods that many of you Americans consume at insurmountable rates.

Obviously these things don't strike you as anythign significant, because you people are so overwhelmed and self-absorbed by your own narcissism that you forget there is another world out there.

Okk now lets all shed a fake abortion tear everyone!!

We dont' have enough resources to ensure the welfare of millions of living children because we are too obsessed with ourselves, but lets shed a tear for abortion everyone!!



You folks wouldn't know the meaning of HYPOCRISY if it hit yah splat in the face.

Tom, Donald, et al:

This article has no real foundation that I can see is proven.

Not that that has stopped your delusions before.

Grace: You seriously need therapy. Really.

Tom the Redhunter said...

Ok CS, time to come out of the closet and tell us about yourself.

You said "you Americans." Where do you live?

You complain about consumerism. Tell us about your lifestyle.
