What is happening to women and girls in China?
China’s population control program, called the “One Child Policy,” is enforced through coercive measures including forced abortion and forced sterilization.
Since the majority of those aborted are female, the One Child Policy has created gender imbalance that is a powerful, driving force behind sexual slavery in Asia.
