CHINA ANNOUNCED THEIR NEW TWO-CHILD POLICY TO BE IMPLEMENTED IN 2016 BUT THEIR POLICY OF BIRTH LIMITATION ENTAILS ENORMOUS AND ON-GOING SUFFERING TO WOMEN AND THEIR FAMILIES. THEY MUST ABANDON BIRTH LIMITATIONS POLICIES.
PETITION TO RESCIND THE TWO-CHILD POLICY IN CHINA
TO THE CHINESE AMBASSADOR IN THE U.S.
Dear Honorable Cui Tiankai,
Considering that the One-Child Policy has resulted in millions of forced abortions and sterilizations over the last 35 years and which continue to this day,
Considering that the new Two-Child policy still entails obtaining a birth permit for any birth, forced contraception, forced abortion and forced sterilizations
Considering that children born to unwed mothers are forcibly aborted,
Considering that a grave gender imbalance has resulted from the One-Child policy and contributed to the elimination of baby girls by the millions,
Considering that women and their families suffer tremendous violence related to the enforcement of the mandate,
Considering that the female suicide rate is the highest in the world, with 590 women per day taking their lives in China, three times higher than the male suicide rate, a proof of their tremendous suffering,
Considering that this policy, be it One-Child or Two-Child is unnecessary since other Asian countries have seen their population decline as much as China during the last 30 years, without a birth limitation policy,
Considering that this type of policy constitutes A GRAVE ASSAULT ON THE RIGHT OF CHINESE PEOPLE TO FOUND THEIR FAMILIES, TO BE FREE OF CRUEL, INHUMAN OR DEGRADING TREATMENT, AND TO RECEIVE SPECIAL CARE AND ASSISTANCE IN MOTHERHOOD AND CHILDHOOD, INCLUDING FOR CHILDREN BORN OUT OF WEDLOCK (Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Art. 16, 5, 25.2),
WE ARE COMPELLED TO INTERVENE. WE URGE YOU TO SUBMIT OUR REQUESTS TO YOUR GOVERNMENT.
SINCERELY AND IN SOLIDARITY AND BROTHERHOOD WITH THE CHINESE PEOPLE.
