Olympics Special: Forced Abortion in China

say no to violence against women Olympic Rings logo

The Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony is about to start.

In all the protests about Tibet and about internet censorship (important issues both), there is an enormous humanitarian crisis in China at risk of getting pushed into the background. That crisis is the systematised, legalised, horrific violence against women and girls.

Through Olympics time, I’m planning to post roundups and linkdumps on a series of these topics. Be warned – they’re all likely to contain triggers.

First up: forced abortion.
