This is the viral moment seen more than 17 million times a desperate woman begs her doctor for an abortion before returning the next day with a knife asking for her child back.

The 20-year-old surnamed Li turned up at the Guizhou Retired Doctors Hospital in Guiyang, capital of China’s south-western Guizhou Province, on 28th April.

CCTV footage shows her walking barefoot into the office of the hospital’s head gynaecologists, Doctor Zeng Aifeng, and kneeling in front of her.

She explains: “I need your help. I don’t know what to do. I’m pregnant and he doesn’t want the baby. He’s left me.”

She adds: “I don’t know what to do. I need an abortion, please.”

Doctor Zeng revealed she and her team had reservations about granting the young woman, who was two months pregnant, the abortion.

“What if her boyfriend comes back asking for the child? Or what if she suffers psychological side effects from the operation?” the medic said.

However, Zeng took pity on the young woman’s situation and decided to perform a pro bono procedure the next day.

But after the operation, CCTV cameras showed Li walking back into Zeng’s office the next day, this time holding a fruit knife and threatening the medic with violence.

Zeng claims the girl asked to borrow 200 RMB (22 GBP), but she refused the request and asked her to contact her family for help.

According to a hospital nurse, they tried calling Li’s mum and dad, but the parents hung up the phone as soon as they mentioned her name.

The girl allegedly upped her threats and demanded compensation from Zeng, saying: “Give me back my child.”

The video shows Li in a stand-off with a hospital security guard, who grabs the blade, allowing the doctor to run out of her office to safety.

Li was later arrested for harassment and told Doctor Zeng on her way out: “I’ll be waiting for you every day after work.”

Guiyang police have yet to announce any charges against the young woman.
