Via Jill at Feministe comes the sad news that the Chinese government is attempting to force a woman to end her pregnancy very late in her second trimester to comply with China's one-child law. Jill points out that groups like the UN Population Fund — a target of the conservative, anti-abortion Mexico City Policy that de-funds family planning groups that talk about abortion abroad — "have been successful in lowering the rate of forcible and coerced abortion" but they are stymied by their efforts in China to allow women the choice to carry a pregnancy by the supposedly pro-life policies of the United States that eliminates their funding. Oh, the smell of hypocrisy in the evening. [Feministe]
