Very Good News!

The Chinese Government issued a document to Family Planning offices that bans forced abortion and sterilization.

A step forward. God hasten the day this evil regime is converted to Christ.

Update: Steve Mosher says, “Belay that!”

    While I hope and pray this is true, I’m not going to be holding my breath until some outside source confirms that they actually are stopping. The Chinese are scarcely more trustworthy than the soviets when it comes to statistics and proclamations.

      Yup. Remember all those wonderful statements about the freedoms and rights of the people in the Soviet Constitution?

      Even if this directive means nothing in practice, though (and that’s the way I’d bet, if I had to put money on it), it’s at least good news in that it shows that important people in the Communist government are starting to realize that this is so plainly evil that it needs to be disavowed, if only for public relations reasons.

      That may not seem like much…but a quarter-century ago they would have hardly bothered.

        That’s about right.
