A lot of people are finding this site by searching for information on China's Abortion Laws. So, for you, dear readers, here's more:
The issue is China's one-child policy, and its effect on abortion, namely, coercing abortion. Although all the official stuff says there's no forced abortion, there are some reports that it exists. If you want some reading material, the transcript of the Congressional hearings on the topic, from 1998, are online (I haven't read it, but feel free to discuss).
There doesn't seem to be much about China's abortion law/policy, hence the large number of referrers to my site. I saw one site that alleged a 7.5 month pregnant woman was going to have an abortion. I don't know if that's true or not, but the Chinese Medical Journal says that RU-486 can be used for 80% of Chinese abortions, which means they're about 8-9 weeks or less. This grad student has gathered a bunch of stats on abortion in China. I can't find too much data on contraceptive use either.
Okay, so one province is doing a pilot where all abortions must be before 14 weeks, with a few exceptions. Overall, though, sex-selective abortions are now impermissible. And the State is offering a reward for whistleblowers.
