After Bernie Sanders praised China for providing 14 weeks of taxpayer-paid maternity leave, both Hollywood actor James Woods and Democratic pundit Kirsten Powers pointed out the communist regime also kills infants for population control.
China – not exactly seen as a model when it comes to human rights – provides 14 weeks of paid maternity leave. The U.S. provides zero.

To which Woods and Powers responded:

Except for the babies they force women to abort. https://t.co/qjHfVtb9lQ

And they’re right. Due to China’s “one child” policy, Chinese authorities hunt down women pregnant with their second child and inject them with poison to force premature labor which kills the baby.
During one such procedure in 2012, Shandong officials pulled the crying baby out of its mother and left it to die in a bucket.
A similar abortion back in 2009 killed both the mother and her nine-month-old fetus.
“According to a doctor from the hospital where she died, the Birth Control Office staff kidnapped the unnamed mother and took her to the local hospital to force her to have an abortion,” Epoch Times reported. “Because of her advanced maternal age, her pregnancy was not permitted under the local policy.”
“The doctor said the woman fought with all her strength attempting to protect the unborn baby.”
And the doctor added that the baby was “completely healthy and able to live if born naturally.”
Yet Sanders thinks we should take advice from China on human rights.
