23 million abortions/year
In China the government is the main institution of abortion. Based on Communist ideas it has systematically oppressed women of child bearing age through, fines, forced sterilization, & forced abortions. It actively advertises abortions in public places like billboards and on city buses.
China's one child policy began in 1979 as a form of population control. The one-child policy began being phased out in 2015 in favor of a two-child policy. This policy has led to millions of abortions over the decades.
China's strict one-child policy has led to female infanticide. China has a built in cultural preference for boys. Boys are preferred in order to carry on the family name and to provide income for the family. Because of this many Chinese abort their children when they discover that it is a girl.
In addition to the 13 million surgical abortions performed each year in China there are also nearly 10 million abortion pills distributed. The practice of abortion by pill in China began in the late 1980's.
