Ms. Song Chang Forced to Have an Abortion

Print

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) controlled court of Shashi District, Jinzhou City, Hubei Province held a trial on the morning of March 18th, 2009, for 29 year old Ms. Song Chang. On the morning of July 17th, 2008, Ms. Song had followed her husband to work in Guangdong Province and was arrested by police from Hubei Province. She was taken back to Shashi District, forced to have an abortion and detained in the Shashi Detention Centre.

Ms. Song Chang is from Lixin County, Shashi District, Jinzhou City. She practises Falun Gong, and has been arrested and detained many times since the persecution began in 1999. Throughout the year, during any CCP political event, whether Ms. Song was at work or at home, the Lixin County Police would arrest her using no legal procedures. She would be detained and released after the sensitive events were over.

On the night of July 4th, 2008, using the excuse of checking on temporary residents, the police from the Shunde City Police Department broke down the door of the couple's home. They found Ms. Song making DVDs. After asking a few questions, they arrested the couple. After discovering that Ms. Song was 3 months pregnant, the next day they informed her cousin to bail her out with 5000 yuan1. During the following days, Ms. Song continued requesting her husband's release. The police department not only refused to release her husband, they tricked Ms. Song by telling her that her husband would be released the following day and that she could come to the police department to get him. The next day, immediately after Ms. Song Chang arrived at the police department, she was arrested by Li Zhenggang and others from the Shashi District Domestic Security Division, then taken back to Shashi District. They forcibly took Ms. Song to the local Women and Children's Health and Medical Centre. Without informing any of her family members or obtaining any consent, the CCP officers forced her to have the abortion.

After the forced abortion, Ms. Song did not want to eat. The guards informed her family about her situation and they took her home. However within twenty days, Ms. Song was arrested again and tortured in the detention centre. In the detention centre, her daily meal was plain soup with some yellowing vegetable leaves; all the food provided there was of very poor quality. The abortion left this once healthy young woman very thin and weak. The poor diet in the detention centre has caused her to become sick and she remains in this condition at the detention centre today.
