In this Jan. 4, 2014 photo, Wu Yongyuan, right, shows medicines his wife Gong Qifeng, left, takes to control her schizophrenia symptoms, in a room they rent in Beijing for stay as Wu keeps petitioning to China's central government for help. When Gong's mind is clear, she can recall how she begged for mercy. Several people pinned her head, arms, knees and ankles to a hospital bed before driving a syringe of labor-inducing drugs into her stomach. She was seven months pregnant with what would have been her second boy. The drugs caused her to have a stillborn baby after 35 hours of excruciating pain. Since the abortion more than two years ago, Gong has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. (AP Photo/Alexander F. Yuan)
