After years of carrying out abortions in China, horrifying human rights violations masquerading as family-planning policies authorized by the Chinese government to ensure a one-child per state-approved family, China has shocked the world with new abortion policies with an entirely different focus. But why isn’t anyone talking about it, and is there a dark side to this news? Let’s discuss the implications:
What’s changing in Chinese abortion policy?
China’s Family Planning Association (CFPA), a state-backed organization and associated member of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, reported that it would be “intervening” in abortions for unmarried women and teenagers in order to “improve reproductive health” in China in 2022. Although abortion is still legal and even forced on minority populations (remember the Uyghurs who are forcibly raped, tortured, sterilized, and made to abort their children?) by the Chinese government, this new effort means that the CFPA will be selectively choosing which women must abort their children and which must keep their children.
The announcement from the CFPA came less than six months after China’s Cabinet released guidelines for the reduction of the number of abortions that were committed for non-medical reasons. While Chinese authorities said these guidelines were for the “enhancement of reproductive rights,” that doesn’t quite seem to be the case.
Why has China encouraged this change?
China is in a shrinking population crisis, and it’s entirely their own fault. Years of unethical and inhumane child policies—which required women to abort their children—have taken toll on their numbers. After more than three decades of a one-child policy, several years of a two-child policy, and a new three-child policy, China is currently experiencing a record low birth rate—the lowest recorded since 1978.
Their most recent statistical yearbook showed a dramatic crisis for the birth rate—as both birth rates and marriage registrations continue in a downwards spiral. Additional, Chinese census data shows that the country only had 12 million births in 2020. For a population of more than 1.4 billion people, that is a scary number.
The policy change away from abortion is the pathway to a higher birthrate. It’s also yet another way China will control its citizens by choosing who must abort their children and who may keep them. They might call this “enhancing reproductive rights,” but this is yet another way for the Chinese government to play God—only they get to decide who lives and who dies in the womb.
