A coalition of human rights groups is calling on the United Nations to investigate China's family planning law to focus international attention on forced abortions, sterilization and other abuses reportedly used to impose Beijing's one-child policy.
Opponents of taxpayer-funded embryonic stem cell research lost a key round Friday in a federal appeals court ruling that gives support to the Obama administration's expansion of the promising but disputed approach to finding disease cures.
"The women and children of China are neither safe nor secure so long as this heinous policy is permitted to exist," Mr. Casey said in the coalition's complaint.
"It is patently obvious that the largest, most historic violence against women and girls in the world today, or in all of human history, must be the practical effect of China's one-child policy," said Samuel B. Casey, a coalition leader and managing director of the Jubilee Campaign, a human rights group that has nongovernmental organization consultative status at the United Nations.
