(Tiepo village, Hubei–June 1, 2013) A woman in Hubei province who was six months pregnant died from massive blood loss after she was forcibly aborted of her unauthorized baby.
Zhang Yinping, 26, originally from Shaanxi province, died at 2 p.m. May 23 in Tiepo village, in the town of Yuyue, which is in Jiayu county. She was forcibly taken to the Yuyue Family Planning Center for a forced abortion because she did not have permission to get pregnant. After the procedure, she lost too much blood and rescue efforts at the county’s People’s Hospital failed to save her life.
The next morning, Zhang’s family surrounded the Yuyue Family Planning Center, whose doors were tightly shut (see photo at left). Police were mobilized.
Jiayu county has applied for a review of medical malpractice in this case of the death of a pregnant woman, and ordered the department that handled the operation to suspend operations and reorganize. The persons responsible are being investigated.
