REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS: Chinese Woman Seeks Asylum In The US Over Forced Birth Control. “Back in 1991, the Chinese government forced her to get an IUD implanted as part of its one child per family population control policy. Wong said the IUD caused her physical pain, but doctors refused to remove it. She had it secretly removed by a physician she found for herself. When another doctor discovered during a routine exam that the IUD had been removed, the government held her for three days until she agreed to have it re-implanted.” Thomas Friedman was unavailable for comment. But a lot of the commenters at The Frisky seem awfully willing to make excuses for the Chinese government. I mean, it’s not like they’ve banned abortion or done something that would, you know, implicate reproductive rights.
