In an effort to cut Uyghur birth rates, the Chinese Communist Party has also been accuse of forcing abortions and birth control on the female population in the Chinese province.

Posting on Twitter, the embassy links to a study published in state-run media outlet China Daily claiming to show that the “eradication of extremism has given Xinjian women more autonomy.”
