AP provides more details on the apology and the suspensions of the population control officials.
The government of Ankang city, where Feng lives in northwest China’s Shaanxi province, said a deputy mayor visited Feng and her husband in the hospital, apologized to them and said officials would be suspended amid an investigation.
“Today, I am here on behalf of the municipal government to see you and express our sincere apology to you. I hope to get your understanding,” Deputy Mayor Du Shouping said, according to a statement on the city government’s website Friday.
The official Xinhua News Agency says three officials would be relieved of their duties: two top local family planning officials and the head of the township government.
Xinhua said Feng was not legally entitled to a second child under China’s one-child limit, but added that late-term abortions are prohibited due to the risk of causing physical injury to the mother.
“The correct way to deal with the case would have been for local officials to allow her to deliver the baby first, and then mete out punishment according to regulations,” the agency quoted an anonymous provincial family planning official as saying.
Meanwhile, Feng’s husband wrote on the twitter-like web site Weibo about what happened, according to the Wall St. Journal.
Feng’s husband, Deng Liyuan, said his wife was forced to have the abortion after the family failed to raise the cash to pay a 40,000 yuan fine for having a second child.
Family members said local officials surrounded the house where Ms. Feng was staying and prevented anyone from leaving. Ms. Feng tried to escape but was caught and taken to the hospital.
“While I was rushing to the hospital, they forced my wife to sign a document with her fingerprint, violently held her down and injected her with poison to cause the abortion,” Mr. Deng wrote on Sina Weibo.
My Two Cents Worth
China says “I’m Sorry but…”
Who wants to hear excuses for abuses, and crimes against humanity.
Either you’re sorry or you’re not.
Being sorry, because you got caught is not being sorry.
Saying “I’m sorry, but…” is just pure bullshit.
Who wants to hear about your “sorry butt?”
Abortion is murder.
Forced abortion June 5, 2012. Seven Months Pregnant woman’s forced abortion, and little baby placed at her side. What an insane country China is. There is no excuse. The Populationists are totally insane!
China’s Pro-Abortion, Pro-Contraceptive Programs are Insane!
Back in April, India’s Supreme Court heard a case about a Surgeon in the State of Bihar. This surgeon performed 53 operations in about two hours in conditions that can only be described as appalling: “assisted by unqualified staff, with no access to running water or equipment to clean the operating equipment.”
The “patients” were left “crying out in pain [and though] they were in desperate need of medical care, no one came to assist them.”
But what’s most appalling is that butchers like him are acting at the behest and with the support of the West.
The operations were sterilizations and, as the U.K.’s Observer has reported, they were paid for, in part, with British aid money.
State and local officials in India used the approximately 250 million dollars to target poor women. Actually, “target” is too benign a term: Poor women were bribed, berated, and threatened if they didn’t undergo sterilization. Then, to add injury to insult, the sterilizations were often performed “with reckless disregard for the lives of poor women.”
The UK’s Department of International Development cited the need to combat climate change as justification for its support of programs like the Indian one. I’m not making this up, folks. It, like other western agencies, sees population control as a key to reducing greenhouses gases.
Needless to say the “population” they are seeking to “control” doesn’t reside in London’s tony Belgravia district. They are the poor living in what used to be called the “third world.”
President Obama requires All Americans to Pay for Abortions, by January 2013!
Is this ObamaCare? Or Obama don’t give a Damn?
So there is not much difference between US President Obama and his cozy friend China’s President Wu.
Doesn’t China own most of America; now thanks to Obama?
If I’m not mistaken: Didn’t Obama take China’s President Wu to: the Gay Spa in Chicago called “Man’s Country” in 2009? At least that’s what all the Conservative Rags (conservative online newspapers) said was going on.
I am inclined to believe them. Obama after all had a Dad who ran away from his family to serve his own interests and fight “for communism.”
Of course Obama’s friend Wu will not be wooed by a lecture from Obama about Chen Guangcheng, because Obama is becoming just like Wu: Dictatorial.
They like the same forceful, Anti-Catholic banter. They both like Pro-Gay Stuff, Anti-Life, Anti-Fruitfulness in Marriage and Pro-Abortion, Pro-Contraceptives, Pro-Sterilization, Pro-Euthanasia Ideologies.
ObamaCare is really an “I don’t give a damn” we will implement a Centralized Government Coercive Experiment in Dictatorship, in the USA.
In the USA…We’ve got dead dissident journalists like Andrew Breibbart – to prove it.
Briebbart’s coroner was even found murdered, so “We the People” smell a rat! Big time! More like a Chicago-style Mafia hit.
In conclusion, I pray:
“May Saint Joseph, Foster Father of Jesus; pray for the US and All People, who live all over the world!”
Pray 2 End Abortion & Pray 2 End Communism and Oppression!
I do not trust our president. It has nothing to do with skin color. It has everything to do with his aberrant politics and aberrant anti-social, anti-family policies.

“Accusations that Chen fabricated the family planning scandal are denied by the victims. Among them is Zhu Hongyun, who was forced to have an abortion in May 2005 because she already had a son. After she realised she was pregnant, she knew the authorities would try to prevent her from giving birth so she fled from her village and went into hiding in Linyi city. She says family planning officials kept her three sisters-in-law hostage until she returned and agreed to let them terminate the foetus. It was seven months old.
Zhu is still trying to recover from the trauma of seeing her dead son dumped into a black plastic bag. But she is not alone. “In this area, if any mother is found to be pregnant, the authorities put pressure on all of their relatives and neighbours,” she said.
Chen campaigned harder than anyone to bring these violations to light. But he is now suffering more than any of the perpetrators. “I feel really sorry about what happened to him,” said Zhu. “He was the one who persuaded people to look at our case.”

“The leading campaigner against forced abortions in China has collapsed outside his home because he has been repeatedly beaten and denied medical care after local population control officials have sentenced him to home confinement for exposing a massive forced abortion campaign.”
“Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, a human rights group that shines a light on forced abortions and sterilizations in the Communist country, informed LifeNews today that it has received credible reports that Chen Guangcheng is seriously ill, and other members of his family are languishing as well.”

Please Pray for Chen, his wife and family.
Pray that China will get on it’s knees and repent of it’s crimes against God and Humanity.
