The Guardian: China Democracy Activist's Partner Appeals to UN over Harassment

August 22, 2012

From Tania Branigan in The Guardian, “China Democracy Activist's Partner Appeals to UN over Harassment”:

Wang, 36, has now written an open letter to the United Nations asking for help. According to her account, released via the group Human Rights in China, she terminated a pregnancy because she feared that without a marriage licence she could be forced into a late-term abortion for breaching China's strict birth control laws. Although such measures are illegal in China, they still occur.
