The UN Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) has received with concern the news that a Chinese woman, seven months pregnant, had been forced to abort. The agency states that strictly opposes any kind of forced abortion.

According to news agencies, the Chinese 23 years, the Shaanxi province, was attacked by local officials and forced to interrupt the pregnancy last June 2. She and her husband were unable to pay the fine of 40,000 yuan (U.S. $ 12,800) to give birth to a second child.

The UN agency said the move violates the consensus established in 1994 by the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo.

The UNFPA office in China called for an investigation by the Family Planning Commission of the country. Several Chinese officials involved in the case were suspended from their duties and that investigations were initiated.

According to UNFPA, the committee said China has taken all steps necessary to officers that this type of violation does not recur.

Also according to the information agency, the case became known when photos of the victim, with the fetus, were disseminated on the Internet. Images were recorded by her husband shortly after surgery and became "viral" causing public outrage in the country.
