Peking University said. So why not educate the youth? Give them the knowledge they need to terminate abortion, because obviously that’s one of the main problems with the out-of-control abortion rates. If the young adults were educated on safe-sex, the number of abortions would radically decrease. Michelle Tsai, a writer for Slate.com said, “Despite the one-child policy, millions of Chinese citizens don’t know how to have sex without getting pregnant.” So education them! And stop the pregnancy before it happens. The next question I’d like to entertain is: why does the number of males double the number of females in parts of China today? William Saletan, a writer for Slate.com, said, “ The steady rise in sex ratios across the birth cohorts since 1986 mirrors the increasing availability of ultrasonography over that period.” The availability of ultrasounds have been greatly increased. Even the poorest people can receive a sex assumption of their baby. One of the reason that couples abort female fetus’ is because of the one-child policy. They realize that if their only child is a girl, there will be no one to carry on the family name. But the Chinese government has also realized this and has now made laws in the rural areas to have a maximum of three babies until you have a boy. But on the third try, if the baby in the womb is a girl, the automatic response is to abort the baby, and try again for a boy. If we did away with abortion, then males would not out number females in the future. Reggie Littlejohn, head of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, said, “Forced abortion is not a choice. It is official government rape.” This last October, a Chinese woman died during forced abortion. She was six months pregnant. This caused a lot of debate worldwide. What is more dangerous: Overpopulation or the death of innocent people? Other complications occur from forced abortion. There are multiple stories that are witness to the negative effect on the woman’s body. Lots of women have physically not been able to have children after they were forced into aborting their first child because of pregnancies out of wedlock. Lots of their bodies, and even lives, were ruined because the Planning Officals decided they needed to terminate the woman’s pregnancy. An eyewitness to a forced abortion center, who requested anonymity for fear of the consequences, said that he “counted 41 occupied beds on just one floor of the maternity hospital in Baise and that he believed none of the women he saw had come to the hospital of their own free will.” That’s a terrible thought. There is no reason for that to be expectable in our world today. To conclude, I understand that China’s laws bind their citizen’s hands when it comes to pregnancies. But today as I’ve explained to you why China needs more sex education, why the number of males is much higher than females, and how harmful, in multiple ways, forced abortion is, I hope you now understand the importance to putting an end to this violence. So as you travel back to your homeland, I hope you take the knowledge I have given you today and

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
