The stories from China are chilling. They make you wonder if something like this could really be happening in the twenty-first century. They sound like something from the Dark Ages, the Spanish Inquisition, the Holocaust, or even worse. Here is an example of how one story ends:
A day later the doctors realized the injection had failed. Wu was dragged to a small surgery room with bloody hand-prints on the wall. In this room doctors cut the fetus to pieces inside her womb and sucked it out with a machine. Before the body parts were tossed in the trash, a nurse held up a tiny bloody foot, complete with all five toes, for Wu to see. Today Wu still suffers extreme mental distress, blaming herself for not being able to protect her baby.
Because the trauma of what she had just suffered wasn’t enough, they had to show her the baby’s bloody foot? Unfortunately, this type of barbarity is a far too common an occurrence in China.
