China: Infant Who Survived an Abortion at 35 Weeks Saved

News out of China tells the story of a tiny baby who survived an abortion.

China has some of the worst human rights abuses in the world, particularly when it comes to abortion. One of only a handful of countries that allows late-term abortion, population control policies have caused Chinese women to be subjected to forced abortions, sterilization, and other abuses. 

This is largely due to China’s restrictive One-Child Policy, which was recently amended to allow for two children — yet couples still have to first obtain a permit. 

If denied, they risk fines, losing their jobs, and literally being dragged off the streets and forced into abortion. Gendercide is prevalent in China, and it’s estimated that over 23 million preborn babies are aborted every year in the country.

With that many abortions, it’s inevitable that some of these babies would survive. But what happens when they do? In at least one instance, the baby was placed inside a plastic bag, with the intention of suffocating the baby to death. But instead, the baby was rescued, and survived.

Lili, an 18-year-old teenager, found out she was pregnant, and kept the baby a secret until she was 35 weeks along. At that point, her brother took her for an abortion, performed by midwife Liang Xiaohua.
