On the night of June 6, 2012, Women’s Rights Without Frontiers received an emergency email about a Chinese woman in danger of forced abortion.
At least a dozen family planning officials broke into the home of Cao Ruyi, five months pregnant with her second child, and dragged her to the hospital for a forced abortion.
On June 3, 2012, Feng Jianmei, was beaten and dragged into a vehicle by a group of Family Planning Officials while her husband, Deng Jiyuan, was out working. The officials asked for RMB 40,000 in fines from Feng Jianmei’s family. When they did not receive the money, they forcibly aborted Feng at seven months, laying the body of her aborted baby next to her in the bed.
Just a few weeks ago, blind legal activist Chen Guangcheng, China’s highest-profile opponent of forced abortions carried under the country’s one-child policy, made global headlines with his daring escape from home confinement and six-day stay in the U.S. Embassy.
Amidst all this publicity on the horrific way China treats women and forces abortions, we see IPPF , International Planned Parenthood cozy with the family planning arm of China.
According to the National Population and Family Planning Commission of PR China, Vice Minister Chen Li met with Mr. Tewodro Melesse, Director-General of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) on June 18, 2012, while he was attending the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development.
China’s Vice Minister Chen Li firstly thanked IPPF for its long term support and assistance to China’s family planning program, and hoped that the two sides would strengthen and deepen cooperation in the field of reproductive health/family planning. The Vice Minister briefed the Director-General on China’s principles and progresses made in population and sustainable development, and said that the Chinese Government insisted on making the development of human beings as the ultimate goal for development, and putting great emphasis on the mutual influencing and inter-linked connections between population, sustainable utilization of resources, environmental protection and sustainable development. He said that the population program of China had not only made important contributions to the stabilization of China’s population but also that of the world.
International Planned Parenthood’s Director: Mr. Tewodro Melesse expressed appreciation for the fruitful cooperation between IPPF and China in the past over 30 years and said that IPPF would conduct a range of activities in 2012 to mark the 60th anniversary of IPPF. He hoped that China would take an in-depth part in relative activities and provide support to IPPF as it always did.
Here the IPPF director claims that Planned Parenthood will DEFEND HUMAN RIGHTS…………………WE’RE WAITING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That was not the first time the IPPF director met with China’s Family Planning teams….On the afternoon of July 13, 2011, Dr. Zhao Baige, Vice Minister of National Population and Family Planing Commission of China (NPFPC) met with Dr. Tewodros Melesse, Director General Elect, IPPF in Beijing.
Vice Minister Zhao Baige expressed her congratulations to Dr. Tewodros Melesse and her sincere gratitude to IPPF for its consistent support and assistance for years to China’s population and family planning program. She said, Dr. Tewodros Melesse was our old friend.
In 2009 Gill Greer, director-general of the London-based International Planned Parenthood Federation, told Xinhua that the family planning policy has contributed a great deal to China’s remarkable economic and social achievements over the past 30 years.
By adopting the population control policy, Greer said, China has reduced its population growth rate and alleviated problems from overpopulation.
“Thus, the policy is very conducive to China’s development in various aspects such as economy, education and health care services..China won’t have achieved so much in the country’s development if it did not pursue its population control policy,” she said.
In a chilling op-ed, Norman Fleishman, the former vice president of Planned Parenthood World Population, recently called for enactment of the Obama contraceptive mandate, saying that it “along with China’s ‘one child policy’ is a start” at avoiding a world “doomed to strangle among coils of pitiless exponential growth.”
Fleishman is a signer of the Humanist Manifesto II (1973), the reaffirmation of the credo that Planned Parenthood’s founders and funders professed. Planned Parenthood’s roots are plunged deep into the poisonous ground of secular humanism.
Planned Parenthood supporter, Obama Vice President Joe Biden, failed to condemn the forced abortion policies of China – seen here in this 2011 speech:
According to a report in CNS News, IPPF’s China affiliate is the China Family Planning Association (CFPA), which has been an IPPF member since 1983 and itself also receives funding from the UNFPA. According to the IPPF Web site, the CFPA “supports the present family planning policy of the government, which is appropriate for the present national situation.”
When the CFPA was established on May 30, 1980, a brief Xinhua news agency report stated that “the association will implement government population-control policies – the encouragement of one-child families and the gradual reduction of the population growth rate.”
Internationally, one of IPPF’s five “priority focus areas” (the five As) is abortion – “advocating for the right to safe abortion services and providing them to the fullest extent permitted by law.” (The other four are adolescents, AIDS, access – to services and information – and advocacy.)
