One of the leading authorities on China's one child policy, Reggie Littlejohn, spoke on behalf of Women's Rights Without Frontiers at Westminster, yesterday, 23 March, about coercive population measures, at a meeting organised by the All Party Group on Human Dignity in conjunction with the All Party pro Life Group.
China is the only country in the world where it is illegal to have a brother or a sister. Second or subsequent pregnancies may be ended by forced abortion or sterilisation. 500 women commit suicide every day in China - three times higher than the rate among men and the highest rate of suicide among women in the world.
The policy has been supported by indirect funding via British taxpayers with the support of successive Governments and all the main political parties in Parliament.
