    China is forcing women to be sterilised or fitted with contraceptive devices in Xinjiang in an apparent attempt to limit the population of Muslim Uighurs, according to new research.
    The report, by China scholar Adrian Zenz, has prompted international calls for the United Nations to investigate.
    China denies the allegations in the report, calling them "baseless".
    The state is already facing widespread criticism for holding Uighurs in detention camps.
    It is believed there are about one million Uighur people and other mostly-Muslim minorities detained in China, in what the state defines as "re-education" camps.

    There are gigantic red flags in that study, from the guy who did it, the foundation who sponsor and worst of all the methodology they used.
    China Birth policies only apply to Han Chinese and never been applied to minority groups.

    The birth control policies applied to the Han in the late 1970s has now been applied to the Uyghurs ... not surprising. All are Chinese after all and should be subject to the same policies, including birth control.

    If they are softening they birth control policies why they want to increased now?

    • 新疆建设兵团汉族人口在实行独生子女政策十几年后改为允许生二胎,但是由于形成了“生育爬蚤心态”,“十五”时期,新疆建设兵团妇女总和生育率稳定在1.0左右(新疆城市汉族可能比这还低),而新疆少数民族妇女总和生育率仍在“三孩”以上。新疆目前汉族人口为37.52%,汉族新生儿比例为18%。
    • 根据《2015新疆统计年鉴》所供数据,2014年新疆总出生635,687人,汉族出生92,804人,汉族出生人口占比14.6%,这意味着少数民族出生人口比例突破85%。
    Han family in Xinjiang averagely has one child each family and Uighur family averagely has over 3 children. in 2014, Xinjiang had 635,687 new borns, 14.6% were Han Chinese, 85% were minorities, mainly Uighurs.

    China's birth contol policy was only imposed on Han Chinese, not on minorities.
    Western media better accuses China of persecuting Han Chinese , that'll be much more tenable statistically.

    Uighur population growth 19.88%, Han population growth:2.03%

    from wikipedia:
    The policy also allowed exceptions for some other groups, including ethnic minorities. Thus, the term "one-child policy" has been called a "misnomer", because for nearly 30 of the 36 years that it existed (1979–2015), about half of all parents in China were allowed to have a second child.[5][6][7]
