Women in China, especially those who are poor or live in rural areas, are often forced to have abortions as per the One-child Policy. The procedures are oftentimes inhumane and extremely scarring to the mother, both psychologically and physically. In some cases, they are life-threatening and even fatal. These abortions grossly violate universal concepts of human rights and free will.
Birth Planning officials also force the families to pay huge fines for the illegal pregnancy, confiscate or damage their property, and may even detain family members as punishment. The whole life of the family is destroyed.
We have rescued many women who were on the precipice of life and death, birth and destruction. Whenever possible, we provide emotional, legal, and monetary support for these new mothers. We believe that every woman has the right to take charge of her own body and future.
