This latest ad has managed to shake even our most jaded “This is China” hearts. A hospital in Chongqing is offering half price abortions if you show your student ID.
According to the ad:
“Students are our future, but when something happens to them, who will help and protect them? Chongqing Huaxi Women’s Hospital has started Students Care Month, where those students who come to get an abortion can get 50% off if they show their student ids. Abortion surgeries are the most advanced in the world, won’t stretch (your womb), won’t hurt, it’s quick, and you can do what you want afterwards, it won’t affect your studies or your work.”
We get that, having stayed in the U.S., we may have a more cautious opinion of abortions than regular Chinese folk but this seems way too morbid even for a country that gets 13 million abortions a year.
