I heard this on NPR Morning Drive.
The victims of China’s forced abortion policy spoke out, and I found this audio clip on NPR’s site.
Reports have been stated that China has been stepping a bit away from the 1 live birth plan, but the dirty little secret is that has been reserved for Party faithful and families of their industrialists. This is nothing more than window dressing to fool the West, which are glad to have markets for products and access to Chinese slave labor products that flood US markets. It is also a ruse so China can host the Olympics in ’08. Don’t believe the hype.
Typically, this law is enforced, and particularly when it concerns Christians and Buddhists (mostly in Tibet). I’ve said it before and I will say it again, the Beijing Regime whether under Mao and the Cultural Revolution or today dressed up with some trappings of capitalism is by far the most vicious and pernicious government in the long and often sorry history of mankind. They make Stalinist Russia and The Third Reich look like rotary clubs by comparison, and our Congress and Executive branch hold out arms open wide to deal with this despotic blight upon humanity. Shame on the leadership of the US. Shame on the UN for kowtowing to this group of miscreants.
I understand that China has a right to their own internal policies inside their own borders, so did Stalin and Hitler, South Africa and Rhodesia. However, “respect” of their “internal policies” doesn’t mean that the US needs to give most favored trade status with these thugs, and at a disadvantage to our own people. It doesn’t mean that US companies need to flood our market, which hurt our own industries with the products of their slave labor. Consider that when you buy “Made in China”. Yet NONE of the major candidates running for President dare to bring up this issue? Why? Is it to pay homage to the Beijing thugs, or is it to pay homage to the greed of corporations that deal and profit from China’s policies of slave labor? In the end citizens of a democracy are accountable for the policies of their nation. So, at least now you can say you were told. The question is do you really care?
Please listen to the tape.
