“But as I was talking to some of your leaders, you share a similar concern here in China. You have no safety net... Your policy has been one which I fully understand — I’m not second-guessing — of one child per family. The result being that you’re in a position where one wage earner will be taking care of four retired people. Not sustainable.”
China's one-child policy is a crime against humanity. It is a horrendous intrusion of government into a family's private life, and has led to countless forced abortions, sterilizations, infanticides and abandonment of baby girls (ever wonder why nearly all of the Chinese kids adopted from orphanages by Americans are... girls?). There are tens of millions of girls and women 'missing' in China. Except they aren't missing. They were murdered.
House Speaker Boehner:
“I’m deeply troubled by the comments reportedly made by the Vice President yesterday regarding China’s reprehensible one-child policy, which has resulted in forced sterilizations and coerced abortions and should not be condoned by any American official. No government on Earth has the authority to place quotas on the value of innocent human life, or to treat life as an economic commodity that can be regulated and taken away on a whim by the state.”
Reggie Littlejohn, the president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, notes:
[Biden should] “mention the severe women’s rights atrocities that are committed in the name of the One Child Policy – forced abortion, involuntary sterilization and gendercide.”
“China’s One Child Policy causes more violence to women and girls than any other official policy on earth. To merely mention the economic consequences is to turn a blind eye to the terrible human suffering caused by forced abortion. Chinese women are literally dragged out of their homes, strapped to tables and forced to abort.”
“The Chinese Communist Party boasts that it has “prevented” 400 million births through the One Child Policy. That’s greater than the entire population of the United States. Most of the births “prevented” are girls. There’s an entire nation of women not living in China today because of gendercide – the sex-selective abortion of baby girls. This gendercide gives rise to human trafficking and sexual slavery, within China and from many surrounding nations,”Biden has long been a supporter of the UN Population Fund, which has promoted the brutal population control policies for decades. Tom McClusky of the Family Research Council notes:
“UNFPA was defunded throughout the George W. Bush Administration, but funding was restored when President Obama took office. Since then, $105 million in taxpayer funds have been allocated for UNFPA despite their participation in China’s brutal policy. Cutting off funding to UNFPA will save money, but more importantly it will save lives”.New Jersey Republican congressman and pro-life leader Chris Smith wrote Secretary of State Clinton:
“Since 1979, brothers and sisters have been illegal in China as part of the barbaric one child per couple policy. And for 30 years, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has vigorously supported, funded, defended, promoted, even celebrated these massive crimes against humanity. The uncontested facts are these: Any Chinese, Tibetan, or Uyghur mother without a birth permit is put under coercive pressure to abort – if need be, she is physically forced to do so. All unwed moms are compelled to abort. In what can only be described as a search-and-destroy mission, disabled children are aborted as part of a nationwide eugenics program.”Of all of the manifestations of materialism and atheism in our world today, the population control movement is perhaps the most odious. It is a clear crime against humanity.
The materialist/atheist assertion that human beings are merely evolved animals without inherent transcendent dignity has consequences. In China, it is a femicide of historic magnitude.
