Gao Zhisheng Wife Geng He Seeks Help To Free Husband From China Regime Persecutors

Human Rights Activists Protest Unlawful Detention of Gao Zhisheng

My husband Gao Zhisheng is a renowned lawyer in China, he has always fought for the rights of his clients, and he has always tried his best to provide free service to the poor.

Money and power can never seduce him, the evil and dark forces can never coerce him to give in, he has been promoting justice, righteousness and human rights to Chinese people, making use of his role as a lawyer. Gao’s sense of justice and his outstanding eloquence have even moved the hearts of judges in the Chinese Communist system.

However such a great lawyer who wholeheartedly served the people is (being) oppressed and brutally persecuted by the Chinese Communist authorities.

The latest in a slow trickle of reports describing child abductions and trafficking in China, swept through the tight community of families–many of them in the New York area who have adopted children from China. For some families, it raised a nightmarish question, ‘What if my child had been taken forcibly from her parents?

On the 13 May, I wrote here that family planning officials in Central China, were under investigation for abducting and trafficking in babies born in violation of China’s outrageous ‘One China Policy’ China Regime official state media reported.

From that question, others come tumbling out. What can or should adoptive parents do? Attempt to locate the birth Mother and if they could, what then?

China Wuhan Elderly Walk at Their Own Risk

Wuhan 88 Year Old Man Falls, Dies Before Help Arrives –Kan Zhong Guo

On the morning of 04 September in Wuhan City, Hubei Province 88 year old Mr. Li, fell and injured his nose—people are seen passing him by for more than one hour, while no one lifts a hand to help him as he laid and drowned in his own blood just 100 meters from his home.

While China Netizens have expressed sympathy for the elderly that fall, priding themselves on the traditional honor and reverence for the elderly, why then are older people that have fallen on city sidewalks being all too often being ignored?

The results are disturbing–More than 80% of the respondents said that they too would not help for fear of extortion in a related poll at Sina, 43% said that they wouldn’t help and 38% said they were unsure.
