In China, where there is less use of contraceptives elsewhere, it is increasing in Xinjiang province. The state imposes heavy fines on parents of more than two children. It is in this context that Uyghur people are forced to adopt contraceptive methods.
Uyghurs who have more than two children are forced by the state to take contraceptives. Reports say those who refuse to do so will be taken to the detention camp.
Between 2015 and 2018, the birth rate of Uyghurs was 60 percent, and in 2019 it was down to 24 percent. Experts point out that this change is unnatural.
China sees Uyghur people in Xinjiang as centers of terrorism. The Uyghur people outside China allege that China is trying to minimize their presence. They say that Xinjiang is a well-planned genocide that is progressing very slowly.
