Compulsory birth control among China's Muslim Uighurs

Finally, careful consideration should be given to the danger of this power passing into the hands of those public authorities who care little for the precepts of the moral law. Who will blame a government which in its attempt to resolve the problems affecting an entire country resorts to the same measures as are regarded as lawful by married people in the solution of a particular family difficulty? Who will prevent public authorities from favoring those contraceptive methods which they consider more effective? Should they regard this as necessary, they may even impose their use on everyone. It could well happen, therefore, that when people, either individually or in family or social life, experience the inherent difficulties of the divine law and are determined to avoid them, they may give into the hands of public authorities the power to intervene in the most personal and intimate responsibility of husband and wife. - Paul VI, Humanae vitae #17



Thanks for sharing this and thanks especially for quoting the relevant section of Humanae Vitae.


Pope Saint Paul VI please intercede for the Uighurs!


Humanae vitae was prophetic beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.

And to think that he never again issued an encyclical during the following ten years of his pontificate. Sad.


In no way should the Vatican be negotiating with these monsters.


Organ harvesting, the thought of, is also terrible. It was in the news today:

‘Utmost horror’: China organ harvesting reports being taken very seriously, UK government insists

It’s hard to prove.

The Epoch Times has reported many stories on this.

China has one of the world’s most beautiful cultures . . . and worst governments. What a cesspool of human rights violations! :disappointed_relieved:


Animal cruelty over there apparently too, very sad.

It’s genocide.
It’s also rape. The form of birth control is intrusive. And if women OB/GYN are doing it, then the CCP invented a way for women to rape other women.

Not condoning in the least what they do to the Uighur women, but how can this be called “rape”? The OB/GYNs are not forcing the women into any sex act.

What is your definition of “rape”?

Power. Rape is about power.

Correction: had. Then the communists destroyed it.

Another article on this today in the New Arab who I think have excellent news:

‘Demographic genocide’: China forces birth control on Uighurs to suppress Muslim population

Then, there is an interactive graphic that will not transfer. This is all basically adding on to the original story, so those interested can read it for themselves.

There’s a writer, Ethan Guttmann who apparently is well-versed in a lot of this. I happened to hear him on the radio the other day. He wrote this book.

If anyone is interested, there certainly is a fair amount of books on the Chinese government on all of these things going on. He was speaking beyond this book, he was talking about tech and Huaweii.

Here is the author’s webpage:

It was very informative what I heard on the radio.

The problem I have seen is to really be able to prove all of this happens though, that said, I think the Chinese government once made an admission but claimed it no longer happened.
