Family planning officials in the central province of Hubei province allegedly threatened Shen Hongxia with legal action if she did not agree to have the procedure.
The 42-year-old woman “bled to death” hours after the operation last month.
An affiliate of a women’s rights group operating in China told the Chrisitian Newswire that family planning officials in Tongshan county, where Shen and her family lived, had ignored doctors’ warnings that the operation was dangerous.
Shen suffered from unspecified “gynecological diseases” and doctors had told her not to have the procedure because it would endanger her life, her husband, Cheng Shixiong(程世雄), was quoted by the South China Morning Post as saying.
But Cheng said the family planning officials had pressured his wife into having the operation after they received “a bad rating” for “failing to crack down on families with more than one child,” the SCMP reported.
GlobalPost senior correspondent Benjamin Carlson said it's a "sad reality check on the 'one-child' policy in China."
"Sure, there are many urban intellectuals calling for its abolition," Carlson said, "but on the ground the policy remains very much in force, as officials are incentivized to show they are keeping the birth rate in check."
According to the group Women's Rights Without Frontiers (女权无疆界组织), there was another, unrelated death last month when a woman who was forcibly sterilized was found hanging in the local Family Planning Office.
Such tragedies may eventually tip the needle by galvanizing public opposition against the 'one-child' policy, Carlson said.
"The suicide, in particular, attracted a lot of attention on social media," he said. "But don't expect it to change anytime soon."
China’s population controls, introduced more than 30 years ago, restrict couples to one child.
But there are exceptions for rural residents, ethnic minorities and couples who are both single children.
After the woman’s death, family planning officials offered to pay the family compensation and to build them a new house “in exchange for the family’s silence,” Bob Fu, founder of US-based rights group ChinaAid, was quoted by Life News as saying.
"This murderous act against an innocent woman is but the latest horrifying case in the 30-year bloody history of China's 'one-child' policy," Fu said.
"To avoid more such atrocities, China's arbitrary family planning policy should be immediately stopped."

Seneca has a good point here: why waste resources on these criminals?  Instead of wasting resources on sterilizations, abortions, and prisons, just put all the law-breakers on a cheap powerboat, and send the boat into the Pacific Ocean until it reaches international waters.  If the boat comes back into Chinese waters, shoot a missile at it.  To ensure cost efficiency, make sure each boat holds at least 500 criminals.  

So, all the criminals in China who oppose China's population control policies would be put on this boat as well.  China does not need criminals in China.  Just ship them out.  Most likely, the West will take them in from the international waters, and I think that is just fine: as long as they don't attempt to come back, or they will face the missile.

Another good benefit of my idea here is that it can greatly help reduce China's over-population.  China has millions of criminals that can be put on these boats and shipped out.

Criminal needs to be put on the boat.  He is using the media to subvert China.  The people in the media who published this should also be put on the boat.
