China harvesting DNA from pregnant women, babies in “New Axis” program
By Ethan Huff // Dec 12, 2023

A British politician is sounding the alarm about a program in communist China called "New Axis" that he says allows the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to harvest DNA from pregnant women and their babies.

British member of parliament (MP) Sir Iain Duncan Smith told the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank on November 28 that the world's largest communist dictatorship has begun applying artificial intelligence (AI) to genomics, "which poses a significant threat to our collective national security."

In essence, what China is doing is applying AI to DNA editing technologies in an attempt to gain a significant strategic advantage in this particular field of technology.

According to Smith, the single-party state run by the CCP could end up gaining an incredible boost in global power through its New Axis program, including in the field of global health care and other major industries.

Smith wants other nations, including his own, to pay attention and develop strategic measures to guard against what the CCP is doing, which basically involves harvesting DNA from millions of people around the world through the clandestine use of its health care products.

"Nothing China does is left to chance," Smith further stated. "The threat that we now face is on par to that which we faced during the Cold War and even that which we faced in the 1930s."

China at forefront of AI, genomics

Currently, there are ongoing investigations into the CCP's DNA harvesting activities in at least five countries. Instead of coronavirus testing kits, this time the CCP is hiding its DNA harvesting tools inside prenatal tests administered to pregnant women.

Marked as "NIFTY," these tests were specifically designed by Chinese genomics giant BGI, in consultation with the CCP's military arm, to collect DNA and store it across servers in mainland China where the CCP can access the data at any time.

The tests purportedly screen for Down syndrome and other genetic conditions, but their true purpose is to fill China's DNA databases with critical data needed to give it the upper hand in world affairs.

"These tests allow China to access the genomic data of both mother and fetus from all over the world, and we have granted them the rights to use that data back in China," Smith stated. "How astonishingly short-sighted was that?"

This is hardly the first time that BGI has been caught engaging in human rights abuses. As we reported in the past, the company is also involved in the harvesting of DNA from predominantly Muslim ethnic minorities in China's Xinjiang province. Some units of BGI have been blacklisted in the United States as a result.

Smith also warns that China is not the only threat. Calling it a "new axis of totalitarian states," Smith also highlighted threats from Iran, North Korea and Russia, all of which just so happen to be countries that Western powers oppose and seem to want to overthrow.

These four powers, Smith says, represent a "growing threat to the free world" that are increasingly coordinating with "brutal regional powers" such as those in Burma (also known as Myanmar) and Syria to propagate their authoritarian vision for the world's future.

China is at the forefront of both AI and genomics, which means it is imperative for international leadership to take note and beware of this "existential risk to humanity."

"The war in Ukraine, the war in Gaza against Hamas, and China's overt threat to invade Taiwan are all of a piece," Smith says. "They are linked inexorably through this axis. To ignore one of these threats is to multiply the danger in the others."
