According to the BBC, Pan Chunyan's pregnancy was terminated at nearly eight months in April because she had violated the one-child policy, lawyer Zhang Kai said.

Her husband has sought legal help after hearing about another recent forced late termination in Shaanxi province.

The case of Feng Jianmei caused outrage when photos of her still-born baby were circulated on the Internet.

Rights groups said the law has meant women being coerced into abortions, which Beijing denies.

Pan and her husband, Wu Liangjie, already have two children.
