A terribly tragic and horrible reality. A hard topic to tackle but you did it extremely well.

I have read about China's forced abortion policy but I didn't know it was still going on. How anyone could choose abortion when in some countries there is no choice... The last line was just the right ending to this tragedy.
Oh my goodness. This is one of those articles that you don't know what to say because words can't do it justice. It was amazing. Hardbreaking, beautifully written. Incredible. I hope this wins.
Oh, my heart is breaking. Yes, perfect last line.

No...............

I've known women in exactly this position. Only the ones I've known have gone in willingly, much earlier. But I've known of friends who've been far from willing. This brings it back powerfully.

What a tragedy - but your writing is excellent.
