How a woman in a North Korean labor camp was forced to drown her new-born child because the baby was of mixed ethnicity was part of testimony given by a North Korean defector in Washington D.C.
At a detention center in North Korea, pregnant women were forced to carry out hard labor all day long, defector Ji Hyeon-A told a U.S. Foreign Affairs subcommittee hearing at Capitol Hill on Tuesday Dec. 12.
“Because North Korea does not allow mixed ethnicities, they make women who have become pregnant in China to miscarry by forcing them to [do] hard labor,” said Ji.
One woman though didn’t have a miscarriage.
“[She] gave birth to a baby at night at eight months after a full day of work,” said Ji. “She was so happy to hold her child, but that moment was short lived.”
The woman was ordered to drown her newborn.
“She pleaded to the guard for mercy with the baby in her arms, but in the end, she did as told,” said Ji. “The image of the dead infant tore through my 20-year-old heart.”
That was the first time that Ji had been imprisoned for fleeing North Korea. In total, she was caught in China and repatriated three times.

So how Did this woman get pregnant from someone other than a nth Korean, did she take a holiday, go to the south, bang a foreigner and go back to the north to have the baby.... Something doesn't add up.

I hate to say it but does it not seem to be another situation from the same play book that was used for Iraq?, we all remember the false testimony stating the soldiers would take babies out of incubators and leave them to die on the floor!!!...
Personally it feels like all bets are off as to what stories will come to light, if they are true who the hell knows..

It truly shows just how weak some people are in this world. Never could anyone force me to drown my own child. Death would be the only option for me at that point, and taking out as many with me as I could on the way down....... sad.
