Jihong Ma, a Chinese woman who was seized by authorities for violating the country's one-child policy, died during a forced abortion in her sixth month of pregnancy, the Christian Newswire reports. Family members reported that officials from the Chinese Family Planning Bureau forced her to induce labor, then left her to die in the operating room. Reggie Littlejohn, president of Women's Rights Without Frontiers, said: "China's cruel and barbaric forced abortion policy causes more violence toward women and girls than any other official policy on earth. ... Women are forcibly aborted up to the ninth month of pregnancy. Forced abortion is not a choice. It is official government rape."
