Forced abortions are common, and if babies are born, many are killed, sometimes before the mother's eyes, defectors say. Grandparents also may be punished since whole families are imprisoned.
"We were repeatedly taught they were the national traitors and we have to eradicate three generations of their families," he said.
I'll be the first one to admit that the U.S. has several faults. But we don't do that. No one in the civilized world does. It's pure unadulterated evil.
