China Forces 1,000s of Muslims to Undergo Sterilizations and Abortions

Surgical sterilizations, abortions, and other birth control measures are being forced upon Muslim women in China to make minorities “disappear”, says a horrifying report.

The totalitarian regime is trying to slash its Muslim population, while encouraging some of the country’s Han majority to have more kids, the agency adds. Its investigative report on the brutal treatment of women of child-bearing age has been released alongside disturbing new research by China scholar Adrian Zenz.

He has warned, "By 2019, Xinjiang planned to subject at least 80 percent of women of childbearing age to intrusive birth prevention surgeries - IUDs or sterilizations.

"Draconian measures that impose surgical birth control methods enable the state to increase or decrease minority population growth at will, akin to opening or closing a faucet."

The Chinese government has long struggled with its 11-million-strong Uighur population, an ethnic Turkic minority native to the northwestern region of Xinjiang. In recent years the regime has detained more than one million Uighurs and other minorities in its so-called "re-education" camps.

Having too many children is a major reason people are sent to detention camps, with the parents of three or more ripped away from their families unless they can pay huge fines. (Sun / VFI News)

By the waters of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion. On the willows there we hung up our lyres. For there our captors required of us songs, and our tormentors, mirth, saying, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!” How shall we sing the Lord's song in a foreign land? If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill! ... —Psalm 137:1-9
