Chinese Couple Whose Forced Abortion Was Publicized in Photo Report Continued Harassment
USA Today: Chinese couple forced to get abortion report harassment, by Calum MacLeod:
A couple forced into an abortion for not paying the fine for an extra child say they are being tormented by Chinese authorities despite the punishment of seven officials connected to the case. . . .
Marchers accused the family of being "traitors" for complaining to foreign news media that Feng was forced into a car June 2 by authorities, taken to a hospital and given drugs to induce labor and end her pregnancy at seventh months.
Photos posted on the Internet of Feng lying in her hospital bed with her dead baby daughter by her side sparked unusual and widespread anger in a nation long accustomed to both voluntary and forced abortions. . . .
