Informed Consent, Chinese Style

Reggie Littlejohn, whose organization Womens Rights Without Frontiers (WRWF) focuses on China’s forced-abortion policy, has said:

“Obviously this [informed consent] does not simply apply to Chinese women, but to all
women. When we’re talking about informed consent in the U.S., women need to be
informed of the very strong link between abortion and breast cancer.”

Mission of WRWF (from its website):  Women’s Rights Without Frontiers is a broad-based, international coalition that opposes forced abortion and sexual slavery in China.  Our immediate goal is to raise public awareness regarding the coercive enforcement of China’s One Child Policy, the connection between this coercion and human trafficking in Asia, and the other human rights abuses that arise out of this coercive enforcement.  Our long-term goal is to champion freedom, justice and women’s rights, in China and worldwide, by exposing violations of women’s rights, equipping the media and the public to understand these violations, and extending help to the victims themselves, as well as to those who stand up for freedom and justice for women.
