64Tiangwang’s report was accompanied by a graphic photograph of the alleged victim of the abortion on a hospital bed, with her dead child next to her.

According to reports, Jianmei was beaten and dragged into vehicle on 2 June by family planning officials while her husband, Deng Jiyuan, was at work.
They forced Jianmei to sign an abortion "consent" form. They inked her thumb and pressed it forcibly against the form.
Toxins were then injected into the brain of her unborn daughter.
Her 30-year-old husband, Deng Jiyuan, posted the pictures on Tuesday along with allegations that his wife was given an abortion on June 2 against her wishes and without her family being notified beforehand.
