Tell President Obama to protect Chen Guangcheng
April 30, 2012
Chen Guangcheng is the leading activist in China against the forced abortions, coercive sterilizations and infanticides that result from the one child policy there. Chen recently escaped house arrest and is now in an American Embassy in Beijing.
According to OneNewsNow, Chen and his family had been harassed and kept under house arrest since the summer of 2005, except for a four-year period when Chen was jailed for exposing the horrendous forced abortion policies of China.
After Chen's release in September 2010, the family was again placed under house arrest, their movements severely restricted, with even 6-year-old daughter Kesi subjected to searches when she came home from school. Chen and his wife were beaten several times.
Congressman Chris Smith, a New Jersey Republican and head of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus and has chaired hearings on Chen's bogus imprisonment and the extensive forced abortion and sterilization campaign he exposed. He has written a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on his website, calling for diplomatic involvement in Chen's safety.
We need your help to urge President Obama to do everything in his power to provide asylum for Chen or other diplomatic immunity that will ensure he is safe from harm. Should he be illegally detained by Chinese officials, he could again be falsely imprisoned or put to death for exposing the brutal forced abortion campaigns taking place in China.
