The European Parliament has adopted a resolution strongly condemning forced abortions and sterilizations under China's one-child policy, including the forced abortion at seven months of Feng Jianmei last month in China's Shaanxi Province, WORLD News Service reports. The resolution "strongly condemns the decision to force Ms. Feng to have an abortion and condemns the practice of forced abortions and sterilizations globally, especially in the context of the one-child policy." It further states that "the EU has provided, and still provides, funds for organizations involved in family planning policies in China" and "urges the Commission to ensure that its funding of projects does not breach" the European Parliament's commitment against coercive population control.
