China's Forced Sterilizations

“In recent years, Uyghur, Kazakh, and other Turkic Muslim women who were formerly detained in mass internment camps inthe XUAR have reported being subjected to coercive birth control measures, including forced insertion of intrauterine devices (IUDs), forced sterilization, and forced abortion. This past year, research by scholar Adrian Zenz found that policies implemented by authorities since 2017 had ‘‘drastically reduced birth rates of ethnic [minority] groups.’’ Two authors who published research in 2021 on population suppression in the XUAR observed that as Party officials are loosening population control rules on Han women, they are simultaneously ‘‘cracking down’’ on the rights of Uyghur and other ethnic minority communities to have children, because of ‘‘perceived fears of instability and uneven growth.’’


(Editors Note:  The Chinese Regime would have the world believe that from around 2012 it began to relax it’s notorious coercive birth-control program. While a lazy and invested media uncritically reported that as a statement-of-fact, the reality was that forced abortion and sterilization atrocities against women (including Tibetan, Mongolian and Uyghurs) continued .  As evidenced in our archive of cases of China’s forced-sterilization of Tibetan and other women

Then China claimed it recognized issues arising from an ageing population, and a below birth-replacement level, insisting population control policies be loosened accordingly, including in 2021 a decision to adopt a ‘three-child policy’. Such announcements of course needs to be viewed against the reality that the Chinese Regime has a long record of issuing less than truthful press-reports to a  foreign media, which has often proven to be little more than a conduit for China’s propaganda. What is more firmly known is that the supposed population-control relaxations are not uniformly implemented, or even existing. Meanwhile, it has become increasingly clear, drawn from witnessed and direct testimony that forced-sterilizations are still being used, especially against Uyghur women.)

“On some days there were about 80 surgeries to carry out forced sterilizations,” Gülgine, 47, said in an interview with The Sankei Shimbun, according to Japan Forward. Source:

“It’s evident from the Chinese government’s own data that the Communist Party’s policies are clearly designed to prevent population growth for the Uyghur, Kazakh, and other Turkic Muslim peoples,” said USCIRF Commissioner Nury Turkel.  Source:

  1. No more words need to be added to all what has been written in the article above about yet another atrocity the Chinese Government *gets away with* because everything has been said what needed to be told……with a heart breaking whilst writing it, no doubt.

    China has gone to the absolute abyss of Human Rights abuse, torture, murder and terror the moment it became a Communist regime ….but it is almost 12 o’clock and Karma shall come knocking on China’s door before very long..
