    Apple is a great American success story and we can say of the late Steve Jobs: You did build that. But there’s a problem with Apple in China. The Beijing government’s forced abortion policy is worming its way into the factories of Apple, Inc. Twenty-four of these factories, it is reported, have helped the Communist government’s brutal efforts to prevent so-called unauthorized births to Chinese mothers. Exiled human rights champion Chen Guangcheng is reporting on the collaboration of Apple in compulsory pregnancy testing of Apple’s Chinese employees. Chen told Bloomberg news agency that Apple should refuse to comply with such...

    The State Department painted it as an elegant way out of a ballooning crisis involving Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng — but by day’s end, it looked like a disgraceful performance by US diplomats. Initial reports had Chen so pleased by the deal that he told Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, “I want to kiss you.” The agreement Clinton negotiated with Beijing yesterday supposedly allowed Cheng to stay in China and get medical attention, with the authorities guaranteeing his future safety. But things started unraveling just hours after the compromise was inked. First, while State claims Chen never wanted to leave...

    Because all progressives are fascist statists at heart. Back when Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood, she realized that only the elimination of what she called “the mongrel peoples” would allow her to achieve her statist goals. Her organization was designed with population control in mind and those who didn’t measure up were to be ‘bred out’ of the population. Since then, progressives have done everything they can to pretend she’s a saint who wanted nothing more than to further women’s reproductive rights but, deep down, their totalitarian instincts still trend toward population control. These days, of course, it’s in the...

    BEIJING—China on Thursday said it would formally end its notorious one-child policy, which was intended to curb a surging population but has since been blamed for looming demographic problems in the world’s No. 2 economy. In a brief statement on Thursday, China’s official Xinhua News Agency said all Chinese would be allowed to have two children. It didn’t provide a time frame or any other details.

    No good deed goes unpunished; this must be what US Ambassador to China Gary Locke must have been thinking as a firestorm of criticism erupted over his embassy’s handling of the Chen Guangcheng case. Under great pressure, with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner arriving for high profile talks with China’s leadership, the embassy and colleagues in the State Department including Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian Affairs Kurt Campbell had negotiated a delicate deal with Chinese counterparts that Chen accepted. Negotiated with the involvement of top legal scholar Jerome Cohen, and based on a...

    Hillary Can’t Delete This As Secretary of State, Clinton says she stopped at nothing to get a blind dissident out of China. That’s not what he remembers. By DAVID FEITH March 15, 2015 This book won’t help Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president. Its author, Chen Guangcheng, is the blind Chinese human-rights lawyer who in April 2012 escaped rural house arrest and sought refuge at the U.S. embassy in Beijing. The ensuing diplomatic tussle over his fate was a high drama that Mrs. Clinton touts as an accomplishment of her tenure as secretary of state. It reminded her of the “responsibility...

    BEIJING—China's leaders agreed to loosen the nation's one-child policy and to give market forces a greater role in the world's No. 2 economy, according to new details of a blueprint for reform released on Friday. The proposals follow the end on Tuesday of a four-day meeting of top Chinese Communist Party leaders, and they represent the first comprehensive road map for reform under new Chinese President Xi Jinping. While a preliminary summary of the meeting released on Tuesday was vague, the more-detailed document released on Friday sketches an ambitious reform program designed to address problems that China faces: maturing growth,...

    Oh, the perils of social engineering in a world ruled by the Law of Unintended Consequences! American mush-heads like Tom Friedman of the New York Times may openly pine for an American government that could act as swiftly and arbitrarily as China's (to build high speed rail, shiny new airports, all the result of far-sighted leaders providing the people what they need, unencumbered by property or democratic rights), but the folly of such power is demonstrated by the sorry reality facing China as the result of its heavy-handed meddling in human reproduction. The Wall Street Journal (link may expire) reports...

    Population: The vice president gives a thumbs up to Beijing's policy of sustainable growth through forced population control. This is no gaffe. The White House endorses this policy. Just ask the president's science adviser. We are used to the "mouth that roared" putting his foot in it. But Vice President Joe Biden's remarks at Sichuan University in China clearly embrace the progressive belief that people are a plague on the Earth — not its greatest resource. "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 the wake of an onslaught of criticism for Vice President Joe Biden’s comments in China about “not second guessing” the country’s one-child policy, the Obama administration has issued a statement of clarification. “The Obama Administration strongly opposes all aspects of China’s coercive birth limitation policies, including forced abortion and sterilization,” Biden’s spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff told The Daily Caller in an email. “The Vice President believes such practices are repugnant.” Barkoff explained that Biden was attempting to critique the restrictive system with his comments.

    Yang Zhizhu knew the dire consequences of breaking China's one-child policy. He would be stripped of his professorship at a Beijing university and hit with such a large fine that his family would be destitute. But when he found out that his wife, Chen Hong, was pregnant for the second time aged 38, they decided they could not let the opportunity pass. "We never planned this, but despite the problems we knew it would cause, we were over the moon," he said. "How much longer can the one-child policy last, anyway?" When China introduced its drastic population controls, officials promised...

    In her December 8 article, “The Real Inconvenient Truth: The Whole World Needs to Adopt China’s One-Child Policy,” syndicated columnist Diane Francis argues that “a planetary law, such as China’s One-Child Policy, is the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate.” After extolling the “intelligence” of the China’s family planning program, she caricatures opponents as “leaders of the worlds big fundamentalist religions.” She concludes: “For those who balk at the notion that governments should control family sizes, just wait until the growing human population turns twice as much pastureland into desert as is not the case.” This argument is...

    Make no mistake about it: the health care bill that moved forward to debate in the Senate on Saturday is simply a power play by the government to gain more control over how we live our lives. It could easily lead to government control over the continuation of our families.

(To listen to the interview, go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTME9ahQBWM) However, as recently as this past month a researcher with the Population Research Institute (PRI) confirmed...

Mosher, President, Population Research Institute (PRI) May 7, 2009 (PRI) - Our own Colin Mason is back from China. His week-long undercover investigation revealed fresh abuses in China's One-Child policy and new proof of the U.N. Population Fund's complicity in these abuses. Remember that the UNFPA has been in China since 1979, helping the Beijing authorities to implement their program. Colin visited three counties where the U.N. Population Fund claims to run "voluntary" family planning programs, and found that they were anything but. What struck me about...

    Universal access to contraception is needed to help fight climate change, it has been claimed. A spiralling global population, with an annual increase of 79 million people, is driving up greenhouse gas emissions, John Guillebaud of University College, London, and GP Pip Hayes of St Leonard's Practice, Exeter, said. And in an editorial in the British Medical Journal they raised the question of whether people in the UK should be told that stopping at two children is "the simplest and biggest contribution" that can be made to saving the planet. The doctors said every person born adds to greenhouse gas...

    Beijing (AsiaNews/Agencies) – China has toned down its one child policy slogans, linking them to public welfare to make them seem less violent. In the meantime numerous provinces fine families 8 times the average annual wage for having more than one child. For years billboards and posters have read slogans such as: “One more baby means one more tomb”, “Raise fewer babies but more piggies", or “Houses toppled, cows confiscated, if abortion demand rejected”. Now the National Population and Family Planning Commission (Cpnpf) has decided to tone down violent publicity and adopt better suited ones “win more understanding to the...

The report, issued by the State Population and Family Planning Commission, said China's sex ratio for newborn babies in 2005 was 118 boys to 100 girls, compared with 110:100 in 2000. In some regions, the sex ratio has reached 130:100. "Discrimination against the...

    Beijing, Dec. 2 (PTI): China will continue with its 'one child' per couple family planning policy since it aided the nation's fast economic and social growth, the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) has said. A Politburo meeting of the party presided by Chinese President and General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee Hu Jintao, described family planning as a key factor in economic and social development. The meeting urged continued research on population development strategies, improvement of population quality based on a low birth rate, better technological and service levels in family planning and reining in a rising gender...
