A veteran Uyghur obstetrician in China has gone public with a gruesome account of the lengths to which the Communist Chinese Party will go in order to enforce it’s population control limits on the ethnic and religious minority community.
Speaking to Radio Free Asia, Dr. Hasiyet Abdulla reported that hospitals in China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region were ordered by the government to abort and kill all babies born outside the bounds of its mandated family planning limits—even newborns and babies carried to term.
According to Abdulla, an obstetrician of fifteen years, maternity wards in the region were ordered to implement the unspeakably harsh family-planning policies intended to restrict Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities to only three children.
“Every hospital had a family-planning unit that was responsible for implementation — who had how many kids, when they’d given birth to them — they tracked all of this,” she said. “The regulations were so strict: there had to be three or four years between children. There were babies born at nine months who we killed after inducing labor. They did that in the maternity wards, because those were the orders.”
Abdulla stated that babies were aborted even if their mothers were “eight and nine months pregnant.”
In some cases, medical staff would “even kill the babies after they’d been born,” she recounted, adding that doctors would “kill them and dispose of the body… They wouldn’t give the baby to the parents—they kill the babies when they’re born.”
“It’s an order that’s been given from above, it’s an order that’s been printed and distributed in official documents,” Abdulla explained. “Hospitals get fined if they don’t comply, so of course they carry this out.”
As we reported last month, reports of the Chinese government imposing forced sterilization, abortion, mandatory pregnancy tests, or implantation of IUDs on Uyghur women have surfaced.
The Christian Post shares the harrowing story of one victim of the communist regime’s violent policies:
A Uighur woman named Bumeryem from Toquzaq township in Kashgar’s Kona Sheher (Shufu) county who fled the region for Turkey in 2016 told RFA that in 2004, she was forced to have an abortion while pregnant with her fourth child around halfway through her second trimester.
“[The family-planning cadres] told me I had to get an abortion because the pregnancy was my fourth, and they gave me an injection through my belly button — I paid 200 yuan (U.S. $29) [for the procedure] myself,” she said.
“[The cadres] took me [to the hospital] and did the abortion at five months,” she said.
“It was a boy. We could find out [the sex] at five months. … If my baby who was aborted were alive today, he’d be 15 years old.”
“There were women there in even worse situations than mine,” she said of the other mothers in the hospital room where she recovered whose children had been murdered at 7 or 8 months gestation. “I lay in my bed and cried.”
Recent reports have shone light on the grim reality of life as an Uyghur minority in China.
Reports of massacres, mass internment camps, torture, organ harvesting, and disappearances—on top of the vicious “family planning” policy and removal of Uyghur children from their families to Chinese state orphanages or boarding homes have sparked global concern.
Back in July, the State Department issued a statement on the sanctions against CCP members imposed by the Treasury.
In the statement, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared that he was also designating the Chinese Communist Party’s Chen Quanguo, Zhu Hailun, and Wang Mingshan, and others “for their involvement in gross violations of human rights” against the Uyghurs. The designations by the State Department mean that “they and their immediate family members are ineligible for entry into the United States.”
“The United States will not stand idly by as the [Chinese Communist Party] carries out human rights abuses targeting Uighurs, ethnic Kazakhs, and members of other minority groups in Xinjiang, to include forced labor, arbitrary mass detention, and forced population control, and attempts to erase their culture and Muslim faith,” said Pompeo.
