Mr. Obama--Ask Hu Jintao About This

At a press conference happening about the time of the arrival of the chief oligarch of China, an escapee and survivor of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre called for President Obama to enter a serious discussion with the Chinese President about human rights. Chai Ling is particularly concerned with China's "one child" policy and forced abortions.

Ling arrived in the United States the year after the massacre, and founded an organization called "All Girls Allowed." As far as the Chinese tyrants are concerned, Ling is a bad person on three counts--she is a female, she speaks out on China's mass child-murder policy, and she is Christian. The forced abortion issue has a double-edge, since it also allows the good old-fashioned Chinese custom of aborting female children. That part is unofficial, but if you want a boy, and you're only allowed one child, keep murdering the girls until you get a boy.

She asks Obama rhetorically what she will never be allowed to ask him directly, face to face: "President Obama, just imagine, what would you do if among your two beautiful girls, if none of them would be allowed to live because, and only because, they are girls." The grammar may not be perfect, but the question is both fair and horrifying. She goes on: "As we gather here in Washington, over 35,000 forced and coerced abortions are taking place today in China; every 2.5 seconds a precious baby's life is taken; among every six baby girls, one will never be born simply because she is a girl; 500 women will commit suicide, at five times the world average rate; 3,000 baby girls are abandoned on street corners; and more than 200 children and women are trafficked into slavery."

Her question is both heart-rending, and at the same time addresses the kind of monster that Obama is holding hands with at the White House. It also raises the question of why America's radical feminists are so silent about Islamic repression of women and China's policy of forcing women to undergo abortions. A spokesman for Women's Rights Without Frontiers described the gruesome policy: "When I say forced abortion, I mean women are literally dragged out of their homes and off the streets. They can be jailed in family planning jails (NARAL and Planned Parenthood are salivating at this), forced to abort children that they want and this can happen all the way up to the ninth month of pregnancy. Some of these forced abortions are so violent that the women themselves die along with their full-term babies."

I hope that our child-loving, human rights-advocating, equal rights for all President gives this some thought while asking Hu Jintao to pass the soy sauce.

Lawhawk, I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you.

Aah Ponderosa, the sad irony...

The answer to the "why". Please...our dear President is an advocate for abortions. even, late term "live birth" abortions. So, so if he (and NOW, NARAL and Planned Parenthood) is silent about the forced abortions and murder of girls, this should come as no surprise to any of us.

Ponderosa: And even worse, to protest the protester, China is planning on having its own version of the awards. I'm waiting to find out if Mao will get a lifetime achievements award.

Tennessee: Hope springs eternal in the human breast. But I'm taking your advice anyway. No breath-holding at the Hawk's Nest.

Bev: And let us not forget that Nancy Pelosi was once asked if a baby was to be born at noon, but actually was born on the elevator on the way to the abortion room at 11`:55 AM, would it be OK to go ahead and kill the baby anyway. She actually had to ponder that question. These people are monsters.

Tennessee Jed said...

The sentiments expressed in your post are entirely appropriate. This administration will, of course, not have their feet held to the fire on the issue, now will the administration hold the Chinese accountable other than a little meaningless rhetoric.

it's sickening, horrifying and evil. as a child of a naturalized mother, i have never taken my american citizen for granted (nor my great fortune to up the anty by being born in texas) and the freedoms it affords me, and now chai ling.

i can't imagine being forcibly made to have an abortion. it makes me, as an american, as a texan, but mostly, as a woman, want to kick someone's ass.

i have no hope in barry. he opened our most beloved home to a communist, who has no qualms of imposing his tyrannical will upon his people, whether they like it or not, whether it is just or not, whether it is moral or not, and offered the bowed will of american complicity (or so he thinks).

he's a disappointment, through and through.

Hawk
Isn't it interesting what some people will ignore while protesting similar events elsewhere?
Our Judeao Christian ethics find it all to be offensive yet this president seems to be so selective in addressing what the majority of Americans abhor.
This must just mean he really is not American.
I have three daughters and love them all equally. However to have a 50 plus woman say "I love you Daddy" is truly a special thing.

That’s a horrible Lawhawk. You can see why Barry and his eugenics loving liberals admire China so much.

LawHawkRFD said...

Tehachapi Tom: With three kids and eight grandkids, I'm just mystified and appalled that anyone claiming to be a human being can be so callous, so heartless, and so inhuman. That nutcase Democrat from Tennessee brought up references to the big lie and the Holocaust over opposition to Obamacare. Does he not realize that his party has been supporting an American Holocaust since Roe v Wade? These are not imaginary victims of political rhetoric--these are real babies. Little human beings. Yet the big lie is that partial-birth abortion is a "choice," and the holocaust is the medical termination of living human beings numbering in the millions. Obama hasn't yet ordered forced late-term abortions, but in his meeting with Jintao, silence shows consent.

Stan: China is doing what progressive Planned Parenthood was founded on. "Weed out the defectives," and they get to choose the definition of "defective."

Hawk - as an aside, although Anonymous'initials are shared with my online identity, we are not one and the same. This information and a dollar will not even get you a cup of coffee at Starbuck's, but I would never wish anon. to get blamed for my ravings :-)

LawHawkRFD said...

Tennessee: My error, and I won't repeat it. I thought the comment was too tame to have been yours. LOL

LawHawkRFD said...

Anon/TJ: I apologize for mistaking you for one of our other regular commenters. I will make a point of responding to "TJ" from here on out.

T_Rav said...

LawHawk, any word on whether these women were approved for the procedure by Philadelphia's own Dr. Gosnell? (I briefly thought of adding a smiley face after that but that would have been altogether too ghastly.)

LawHawkRFD said...

T_Rav: I see your point. Did you notice that as he was being perp-walked he didn't even have the decency to look at least grim, let alone chastened. He had a big s--t eating grin on his face.

T_Rav said...

LawHawk: Well, as they say, you are what you eat. That (insert your own noun here because none I can think of are adequate) would be doing a booming business in the wonderful People's Republic. Heck, by their standards he's probably "quality care."

LawHawkRFD said...

T_Rav: He could become a professor of preventive late pregnancy medicine at Beijing U. That way, as long as he didn't ask for a raise or become and outspoken Christian, he could become a "hero of the people."

Lawhawk, sorry I'm a little late responding, but no problamo dude. I tried to set up a Google account and kept having problems logging in - so I just decided to post anonymously.
