(China Aid) — A Christian human rights defender is in need of urgent cancer treatment that she cannot afford after a Chinese medical team canceled a critical operation.
Huang Yan, a 47-year-old Christian woman who has assisted many prisoners of conscience, including Gao Zhisheng, was refused a necessary operation for her ovarian cancer, despite previously having one in the fall of 2013.
Public security bureau officials beat Huang in 2010 and 2012, respectively, and she lost her unborn children both times. During the second instance, the officials burst into the bathroom, where she had just miscarried her child, and continued to abuse her. At that time, her husband was taken to the public security bureau and received injuries at the hands of the authorities.
