North Korea punishes political prisoners with forced abortion

A UN Commission of Inquiry on human rights in North Korea has found that the regime of dictator Kim Jong-un has committed "unspeakable atrocities" against its citizens, including arbitrary imprisonment and execution, deliberate starvation, torture, rape and forced abortion, reports LifeSiteNews.

Head of the Commission Michael Kirby, a retired Australian judge, said at a press conference in Geneva today that the 372-page report is the result of a year-long investigation that was based on the testimony of defectors given at hearings held in South Korea, Japan, Britain and the United States.

The Commission's report describes North Korea's human rights abuses as "systematic and widespread violations … committed by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, its institutions and officials," and states that, "In many instances, the violations of human rights found by the commission constitute crimes against humanity."

Addressing China's role in the abuses suffered by North Koreans, the Commission found that "persons who are forcibly repatriated from China are commonly subjected to torture, arbitrary detention, summary execution, forced abortion and other forms of sexual violence."

The report calls this "the denial of reproductive rights." China, it said, should observe the international legal principle of “non-refoulement,” which protects victims of persecution from being forcibly returned to their persecutors.
