MIDLAND, Texas, Sept. 26, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by the China Aid Association:
On September 12 and 13, 2012, All Girls Allowed, a US-based group that opposes China's forced family planning policy and seeks to end it, sent out an English-language news release and a prayer letter saying that the Chinese government had begun to ban forced abortions and forced sterilizations. The response from many quarters after this news was released and picked up by media outlets was mostly expressions of doubt. Some organizations and experts have already made targeted rebuttals, and ChinaAid has also engaged in-depth discussions with All Girls Allowed (AGA), making it clear that it held a different view. In response, AGA's founder and president Ms. Chai Ling made her case for insisting on the authenticity and accuracy of the news and the group's investigations (see the links provided below to the news reports on this subject.)
ChinaAid believes that, although we look forward to the early end of the evil policy of forced family planning in China and although we respect and applaud Ms. Chai Ling's important work and contributions in this endeavor, the tone of the AGA news release and the conclusion it draws lack the necessary and sufficient evidence; they are too naïve and jump to conclusions, and constitute an erroneous report that has seriously misguided and confused international opinion. At the same time, AGA has unintentionally acted in concert with the Chinese government's propaganda efforts, beautifying the image of the family planning commissions and their officials, which will hurt innumerable victims of the forced family planning policy and weaken their courage to pursue justice and protect the dignity of human life.
The evidence cited by AGA are mainly the following:
