Yuyue, Hubei — On May 23, 2013, 26-year-old pregnant mother Zhang Yinping was dragged to the local Family Planning Office in Yuyue, Hubei, for a forced abortion. Despite being 6-months pregnant, the Family Planning Officials disregarded a national and provincial ban on late-term forced abortions and still went ahead with the forced surgery. After the surgery, Ms. Zhang suffered a massive hemorrhage and died the following morning on May 24th.
Local Jiayu county officials are investigating this case as a “medical accident” and the Family Planning Office has been closed during the investigation. Ms. Zhang’s relatives surrounded the office in protest, but the county sent police officers to stop the protest. There are no signs of a criminal investigation or criminal charges.
A similar incident occurred on May 22nd also resulting in the death of 33 year old mother who was 7 month pregnant, according to a report in the Christian Post.
The All Girls Allowed organization requests prayer for the victims family and for their effort to obtain visual evidence (photo or video) of this forced abortion and murder. It is hoped the mainstream media also picks up this story.
