Ms. Littlejohn said this is the second fatality from China's forced sterilization policies in just the past few weeks.
"Women's Rights Without Frontiers strongly condemns forced sterilization and all coercive family planning in China," said Reggie Littlejohn, president of the group, to Life News. "The fact that Shen Hongxia's doctor had clearly warned that sterilizing her could kill her makes her death the responsibility of the Family Planning Officers who forced this violent surgery upon her. Compensating her family with money is not enough. Those responsible for her death should face serious criminal charges."
