    Some experts said the Communist Party is concerned that an economic slowdown could spark civil unrest, and want to avoid another Tiananmen Square incident such as seen in 1989. China's growth problems have been compounded by trade tensions with the U.S. A black swan refers to an unforeseen event that could cause turmoil, while grey rhinos refer to a highly likely threat that's currently being ignored.

    Yuan Huaru, the former midwife of Wang’s village, estimates that she performed about 50,000 to 60,000 forced sterilizations and abortions over her career; the former saw women being tied down and dragged away “like pigs,” while the latter at times involved inducing live births and then killing the babies.
    Holy sh!t!

    Yeah. My stomach turned at that passage. Not sure I can watch that movie. Have to be in the right frame of mind to give it a try for sure.

    Forced abortions

    Unfortunately, these gruesome figures are probably not so exaggerated.
    I have a good friend whom was a doctor/professor at Canton Medical University and also served in Army Hospitals in China back in the days before having his chance to immigrate to the US. He personally witnessed many forced abortions with women that are almost or already in full terms. Many of these victims were from the country side villages and the Army would come around towards the Fall/early Winter because usually the men would return to their local villages around Chinese New Year holidays to visit their wives and parents and by the next Fall or so, there would be a lot of pregnant women running around and many of them have already exceeded their 'one child' quota. They would be taken away against their wills in the middle of the night to the Army hospitals and have their babies aborted, irregardless of their terms.
    My dear friend told me these stories with deep sadness, knowing that it wasn't the right thing to do but also felt that there was no choice for them as health professionals to go against the orders of the government.
