CHINA - Some 13 million abortions performed outside of China’s one-child policy [AN]

The overall number comes from hospital data, but it is likely higher because it does not take into account private clinics. Young unmarried women turn to abortion as a means of contraception. In the meantime a public debate is underway in the country about possible changes to the policy. A book with analyses by Chinese rights advocate Harry Wu on the negative impact of the one-child policy is published in Italy.
