As a US business (and tech) community, I think we should be significantly clearer about our horror at, and opposition to, the atrocities being committed by the Chinese government against its own people.
Hundreds of Uyghur women lined up for forced IUDs, fathers jailed according to # of children, women sterilized in detention camps w injections & pills against their will, all while the govt promotes Han ppl to have more babies. "It's genocide, full stop."
AP with a pretty big, unbylined piece about China imposing abortions, sterilizations and IUDs on its Muslim population. "The practice is far more widespread and systematic than previously known…demographic genocide.” “They want to destroy us as a people.”
One of the most deeply upsetting charts I've ever seen. From this harrowing AP investigative report about China forcing birth control on Uighurs in Xinjiang to suppress their population growth:
What the Chinese government is doing to the Uighurs is horrifying.
Forced birth control in Xinjiang is far more widespread than previously known, according to an AP investigation, based on an interview with a former detention camp instructor, many ex-detainees and family members. “Demographic genocide.”
“Leave no blind spots…Contain illegal births and lower fertility”: Xinjiang police were ordered to root out parents with more than two children as part of a campaign to slash birth rates among China's Uighurs.
Horrifying: “The state regularly subjects minority women to pregnancy checks, and forces IUDs, sterilization and even abortion on hundreds of thousands ... The population control measures are backed by mass detention both as a threat and as a punishment”
China is forcing sterilization on Uighur woman to eradicate the Uighur population. This, in combination with concentration camps, justifies full application of Magnitsky sanctions on all the Chinese officials organizing this vile persecution
“It’s genocide, full stop. It’s not immediate, shocking, mass-killing on the spot type genocide, but it’s slow, painful, creeping genocide,” said Joanne Smith Finley of “These are direct means of genetically reducing the Uighur population.”
Horrific investigation into the Chinese government’s Uighur genocide details mass violence against women in the form of forced IUD insertion, forced abortions and detention/re-education on the “right” number of children.
A Chinese state campaign to force IUDs, sterilizations, and abortions on minority women in Xinjiang has pushed birth rates down over 60% in heavily Muslim Uighur regions. Some experts call it a form of “demographic genocide.
There's a lot going on in the national security world right now. But take the time to read this story about the--there's no other word for it--unspeakable evil that's occurring in Xinjiang.
'Demographic genocide': The Chinese government is taking draconian measures — including forced IUDs, sterilization + abortion — to slash birth rates among Uighurs & other minorities as part of a sweeping campaign to curb its Muslim population, reports
Birth rates dropped more than 60% in just three years in Uighur-majority areas in China’s Xinjiang region - the result of a state campaign to curb Muslim populations, the AP has found.
China is forcing birth control on Uighurs and other minorities as part of a sweeping campaign to curb its Muslim population. I spend most of my days working on conflict and repression but this is easily one of the most disturbing things I've seen in years
“It’s genocide, full stop. It’s not immediate, shocking, mass-killing on the spot type genocide, but it’s slow, painful, creeping genocide. . . These are direct means of genetically reducing the Uighur population.”
“[China] regularly subjects minority women to pregnancy checks, forces intrauterine devices, sterilization and even abortion on hundreds of thousands, the interviews and data show...Police raid homes, terrifying parents as they search for hidden children.”
An extraordinary birth control campaign is unfolding in Xinjiang. Parents of large families are detained, IUDs and sterilizations are surging - and birth rates in Uighur-majority Hotan & Kashgar are plunging, by over 60% in just 3 years.
New and deeply reported from the AP: “China forces birth control on Uighurs to suppress population”
The facts revealed in this investigation are horrifying. The forced sterilization of Uighur women by the Chinese Communist Party is nothing less than cultural and demographic genocide.
Horrifying new detail on China’s treatment of religious and ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, from the AP
As time goes on, this is getting reported more clearly and in more detail and by more outlets: a deliberate attempt by the world's largest state to eliminate a minority population.
Attempts by the state -- by anyone other than women themselves -- to control women's reproductive lives are abhorrent, dangerous, and tyrannical.
The Chinese government is taking draconian measures to slash birth rates among Uighurs and other minorities as part of a sweeping campaign to curb its Muslim population, even as it encourages some of the country’s Han majority to have more children.
This investigation by , based on research done , is devastating. The sterilization of Uyghur women follows on the Chinese state's longstanding embrace of eugenics.
What China is doing to its Uighur population is simply evil. These accounts of forced sterilization are chilling.
China's Communist leaders don't like having so many Uighur Muslims. They are waging the Marxist equivalent of a "holy war" to reduce the Uighur population. We need to raise our voices in support of China's Muslim community and against the Beijing regime.
As if all of that is not enough, they’re forcing IUDs, sterilization, and abortions to stem the growth of Uygher population. Unconscionable. (HT: )
I try to avoid characterizing things as good vs. evil. But this is evil.
La stérilisation forcée des femmes ouïghours dévoilée. Systématique, elle vise à la disparition progressive d’un peuple. Les grands crimes ont besoin de grands silences. Celui de nos dirigeants étant immense, il nous revient de le briser. #OuighoursArmy
The Chinese government is pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into slashing birth rates among Uighurs and other Muslim minorities in Xinjiang – with the alleged goal of fighting extremism.
This is a disturbing report that, if confirmed, would be the latest example of the Chinese government systematically trying to wipe out Uyghur religion and culture in Xinjiang.
The Chinese Communist Party is so fucking evil.
So many disturbing details in this AP investigation on China’s efforts to control the population of Uighurs and other minorities in Xinjiang
This is genocide, folks. Don't say you didn't know.
China cuts Uighur births with IUDs, abortion, sterilization - “The campaign over the past four years in the far west region of Xinjiang is leading to what some experts are calling a form of “demographic genocide.””
“My cousin spent all his time taking care of his family, he never took part in any political movements,” Zuhra Sultan said from exile. “How can you get 7 years in prison for having too many children? We’re living in the 21st century- this is unimaginable.”
“It’s genocide, full stop.” China regularly subjects Uighur women to pregnancy checks, and forces intrauterine devices, sterilization and even abortion on hundreds of thousands. Damning report by AP.
China is forcing as many as hundreds of thousands of Uigher women to: - Forced sterilization - Forced intrauterine devices like the coil - Forced separation from children if they have too many - Police raids on homes, looking for secret children
Important piece by AP out today, detailing China's population-control campaign directed at Uighurs: "The state regularly subjects minority women to pregnancy checks, & forces intrauterine devices, sterilization & even abortion ..."
This is evil China forces birth control on Uighurs to suppress population
This is America's top rival for global hegemony: "The state regularly subjects minority women to pregnancy checks, and forces intrauterine devices, sterilization and even abortion on hundreds of thousands"
Two harrowing charts from this investigation into Muslim birth suppression in Xinjiang. "Fifteen Uighurs and Kazakhs told the AP they knew people interned or jailed for having too many children. Many received years, even decades in prison.'
China is systematically using forced sterilization and forced insertion of IUDs to reduce birth rates of Uighur Muslims in the far west region of Xinjiang, the reports: It was known that this happened at times, but it now seems a systematic campaign.
The fact that all our most celebrated corporations tolerate this in China or even suppress criticism of it, should be taken as evidence they’ll support it here too.
Alex Trebek voice: What contemporary state of economic affairs will future generations judge us for having tolerated or overlooked despite being morally heinous?
C'est du génocide à la chinoise. La Chine n'a pas besoin de copier à l'identique les autres génocides et c'est aussi pour ne pas rentrer directement dans les critères du génocide défini par l'ONU, mais le résultat est le même. #UyghurGenocide
A must-read investigation
Horrific new reporting from the on the Chinese government forcing sterilizations, abortions, and birth control on Uighur community and sending people to concentration camps for having too many children
This is beyond horrifying: Chinese government takes draconian measures to slash birth rates among Uighurs and other minorities, including forced birth control, as part of a sweeping campaign to curb its Muslim population
China is committing genocide—and we have yet to hear about it from the President of the United States. Terribly sad that we have so quickly lost our moral voice as a nation.
This is genocide.
Having too many children (and being Uyghur) gets you thrown in a detention camp
AP investigation: China forcing birth control on Uighur minorities to cut their population
#China's government is taking draconian measures to slash birth rates among #Uighurs and other minorities as part of a sweeping campaign to curb its Muslim population, including forced intrauterine devices, sterilization and even abortion, reports
"The Chinese government is taking draconian measures to slash birth rates among Uighurs and other minorities as part of a sweeping campaign to curb its Muslim population"
“When a visiting official peered through the iron bars of their cell, she recited her lines in halting Mandarin. ‘I gave birth to too many children,’ she said. ‘It shows I’m uneducated and know little about the law.’”
This is absolutely horrendous, there is nothing else anything close to this in the world right now. It's a 'demographic genocide' - and the media is hardly reporting it... Pls RT and support, , it would mean a lot.
"Having too many children is a major reason people are sent to detention camps ... with the parents of three or more ripped away from their families unless they can pay huge fines. Police raid homes, terrifying parents as they search for hidden children."
China cuts Uighur births with IUDs, abortion, sterilization
China's "regulated birth control for religious minorities over past 4 years is leading to what some experts call 'demographic genocide': a climate of terror around having children. Birth rates in Uighur regions plunged by more than 60% from 2015 to 2018."
Not to lose sight of the “state-orchestrated assault” on the #Uighurs - a reminder: “It’s genocide, full stop. It’s not immediate, shocking, mass-killing on the spot type genocide, but it’s slow, painful, creeping genocide.”
Three amazing stories of this week that appear to demonstrate the unchecked ability of the world's superpowers to act with impunity. First, stunning investigation from the on the forced sterilisation of Uighurs. 1/3
There just isn't enough outrage for news like this.
China cuts Uighur births with IUDs, abortion, sterilization.
China forces birth control on Uighurs to suppress population
Worth reading carefully to understand the details of what is happening in China. From the AP.
Fifteen years ago I put a Uighur leader on the cover of the Jewish newspaper I edited at the time, trying to bring attention to their plight. Can we PLEASE talk about this now? One of *two* ongoing genocide campaigns against Muslims in Asia.
The Chinese regime regularly subjects minority women to pregnancy checks, and forces intrauterine devices, sterilization and even *abortion* on hundreds of thousands...demographic genocide.
Is there no limit to the wickedness of the CCP regime? Read this.
Forced birth control, sterilization and abortions, as China pursues new eugenic policy to reduce numbers of Muslim Uighurs
China forces birth control on Uighurs to suppress population
China cuts Uighur births with IUDs, abortion, sterilization
"Leaked data showed that of 484 camp detainees in Karakax county, 149 were there for having too many children - the most common reason for holding them. Once in the detention camps, women are subjected to forced IUDs and pregnancy prevention shots."
‘Hard’ and ‘soft’ ethno-demographic engineering (to use Paul Morland’s terms) both used in Xinjiang in the form of sterilization and intermarriage incentives
For those desperately seeking systemic racism, here it is...
Is there no limit to the wickedness of thus regime?
It’s unclear to me how Adam Silver can talk about searching for mutual respect with a government doing this. I don’t know how the NBA will handle conversations about China going forward, but I don’t understand how you can brush this off. It isn’t right.
The CCP does what it wants. And we allow it because they keep our clothes, furniture & electronics cheap. If we can't stand up to this, then we should stop pretending to care about human rights China cuts Uighur births with IUDs, abortion, sterilization
Impressive long AP piece on Chinese govt efforts to suppress Uighur population growth, including forced contraception, sterilization, & abortion.
I can't stop thinking about this piece. About the genocide in China.
No doubt the UN Human Rights Council will condemn this soon. “The state regularly subjects minority women to pregnancy checks, and forces intrauterine devices, sterilization and even abortion on hundreds of thousands, the interviews and data show.”
Very disturbing. The policy mechanics of addressing "overpopulation" are genocidal and misogynistic. We need to be clear-eyed about that.
Full blown eugenic genocide going on in #China. Welcome to nazi communism! #bioethics #humanrights #UighurGenocide
China's "climate of terror around having children," directed at its Uigher minority. Horrible.
