China Continues to Devour Its Own Children
Last edited 21st May 2015

This story concerns a married couple who each have one child with their previous spouses (it is unclear if the previous marriages ended due to divorce or death). According to the regulations set down by the Guizhou province where the woman in question, Qin Yi, works as a teacher, the couple are not allowed to have their own child. In the eyes of the province’s education bureau and the health and planning commission, their “one child” quota has been filled in their previous marriages. Thus, when it found out that Qin was five months pregnant, the commission ordered that she have an abortion by the end of the month.

Last edited 28th January 2015

The definition of social decay is when you have to restate blindingly obvious moral truths because too many people have forgotten them. Here’s one: you shouldn’t abort a baby just because it’s a girl. Or a boy.
