A 48 year-old woman with an innate mental disorder could be forced to abort her 27 week-old unborn child after the vice mayor of Sigong said it was needed “as soon as possible”. Unable to communicate and look after herself, Rong Ying (alias) was put into a care home in Sigong, Renshou where she became pregnant after another patient lured her to a hillside with food. The belated diagnosis was put down to negligent staff, her big appetite and wearing many clothes. Her family isn’t sure what to do, with both the birth and abortion posing risks. Netizens said an abortion would be inhumane.
