Guangxi Communists kill 61 unborn children in forced abortions: Communist China continues to be one of the few entities on earth that can unite pro-choicers and pro-lifers in disgust at its behavior - and the regime is at it again. China Aid (via Epoch Times) is reporting that cadres in Guangxi Province "have seized at least 61 women and forcibly transported them to the Youjiang District People's Hospital of Baise City, where the women have been injected with drugs to kill their unborn children" (emphasis added). This is not the first (and sure not to be the last) incident of forced abortion as part of the Communists' "one child" policy. In 2001, Guangdong Province ordered 20,000 abortions and sterilizations as part of "one child."
