35,000 Forced Abortions Committed Daily in China: Rep Smith

About 35,000 abortions are committed daily on women who are victimized by the country's coercive one-child policy, said Congressman Chris Smith Tuesday.

Smith spoke at a lunch discussion entitled “No Choice Allowed: China’s Hollow Celebration of International Children’s Day” on June 1.

The leading pro-life congressman was joined by four other panelists, including T. Kumar, Asia Director for Amnesty International, in a lunch-hour meeting that addressed the grave systemic consequences of China’s one-child policy and the efforts various organizations are initiating to speak out for women and children’s rights in China.

One such group is the All Girls Allowed Initiative of the Jenzabar Foundation, cofounded by panelist Chai Ling, a leader of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests, who thanked Smith for his well-known work in defense of women’s rights and global justice.
