China is forcing women to be sterilised or fitted with contraceptive devices in an apparent attempt to limit the population of Muslim Uyghurs in western Xinjiang region, according to a new research published on June 29. Two years later, in January 2018, four officials in military camouflage knocked at her door anyway and handed Omirzakh, the penniless wife of a detained vegetable trader, three days to pay a 17,5000 RMB (£2,000) fine for having more than two children. "They cut out one of our organs".
After Gulnar Omirzakh, a Chinese-born Kazakh, had her 3rd child, the govt instructed her to gain an IUD inserted.
"They give shots and remove fetuses forcefully".
The Chinese government has reportedly denied these statistics, saying they are "fabricated" and "fake news". Those who didn't obey were sent to the camps.
"It is absolutely essential that American importers ensure that the integrity of their supply chain meets the humane and ethical standards expected by the American government and by American consumers", Smith said.
"It is true that surveillance in Xinjiang is all encompassing".

It also reports that some of the women said they were being coerced into receiving sterilisation surgeries.
Around the Xinjiang area, birth rates continue to plummet, falling almost 24% previous year alone compared to just 4.Two percent countrywide, data show. Zenz wrote that forced birth control practices in Xinjiang have been rampant. Within the following yrs., the govt announced that in place of just 1 child, Han Chinese can as of now have 2, & 3 in Xinjiang's rural regions, just like minorities.
Responding to the report on Monday, China's foreign ministry said the allegations were "baseless" and showed "ulterior motives".
The statement also emphasizes that any acts of politicizing human rights issues should be prohibited. The Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China, a group comprising of political leaders from North America, Europea and Australia, said the world must not remain silent about China's atrocities.
"The world can not remain silent in the face of unfolding atrocities".
Zenz argued that these findings provide strong evidence of Beijing meeting the genocide criteria under the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, by "imposing measures meant to prevent births within the group".
The Chinese government has further been accused of propagating mass sterilization and birth control efforts, targeting the reproduction of the ethnic minority group.
Many Uighurs have called on the worldwide community for help, saying that their rights are severely under threat.
The announcement came as the U.S. State, Commerce, Treasury, and Homeland Security departments warned U.S. businesses to beware importing goods through supply chains that involve forced or prison labor in Xinjiang and elsewhere in China.
China's foreign ministry said in May that it deplored and firmly opposed United States sanctions over Xinjiang, calling it a purely internal affair for China. "The new findings underline the urgent need of an independent investigation of the situation and the need of a sanction regime for human rights violations".
