Declares that: (1) women in China possess a fundamental, inalienable right to carry their pregnancies to term free from coercive tactics designed to force a woman to abort her child; (2) coercion by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to coerce abortion and sterilization is immoral, reprehensible, and a violation of the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights; (3) the House of Representatives expresses its regrets and condolences to the innocent victims of the CCP's one-child policy; and (4) it is the sense of the House of Representatives that the United States should publicly condemn the CCP's one child policy, coerced abortions, and coerced sterilizations at appropriate international forums.
