(LONDON DAILY MAIL) — Grisly photos of a young woman lying beside her baby which had been aborted by force in her seventh month of pregnancy have caused outrage in China.
Pictures purporting to show the woman and her blood-covered baby have shocked anti-abortion groups in China – and fury is spreading around the world.
The mother, Feng Jianmei, told local media that she was forceably injected with a chemical to induce an abortion and her child was stillborn 36 hours later.
Because she already had a child, said Feng, local birth-control authorities ordered her to pay a fine of £4,000.
She didn’t have the money, she said, so a team from the local family planning authority in Shannxi province came to collect her from her home and take her to hospital for the forced abortion.
