    “I am all right and I am home now,” Tursun told RFA’s Uighur service. It also quoted a local population control official as saying her health was not good enough to go through with the abortion.

    The episode has directed a spotlight on China’s coercive “one child” program at a time when the U.S. policy of defunding the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA) because of its work in China is set to change.

    The U.N. agency has lost around $240 million since President Bush in 2002 invoked legislation that denies funding for any organization supporting or participating in forced abortion or involuntary sterilization programs.

    A good question would be will the new admin restart funding for this UN program?

    The silence of those who in these threads voiced their support of Obama but not voicing their opinion on this issue...is deafening.
