This holiday season please remember the women and babies of China, who are enduring conditions that are beyond imagination. At this moment, there are women in China who have gotten pregnant without a “birth permit” and are in danger of beging dragged away for a forced abortion, up to the ninth month of pregnancy. Baby girls in China are in danger of selective abortion and abandonment.

You may have heard that China is easing its One Child Policy. This is not true. “China Hasn’t ‘Eased’ It’s One Child Policy,” 11/18/13 http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/364200/china-hasnt-eased-its-one-child-policy-reggie-littlejohn
The brutality continues. This October Liu Xinwen was forcibly aborted at 6 months. Twenty Family Planning Officials burst into her home at 4:00 a.m., restrained her husband, and dragged her off to the hospital, where they forcibly aborted her son and left him in a bucket beside her bed. China reports that it has 13 million abortions a year. That’s 35,000 a day, or almost 1500 an hour. The brutality of China’s forced abortion policy is repeated thousands of times every day. Meanwhile, China leads the world in the sex-selective abortion of baby girls.
Our Save a Girl campaign is saving the lives of baby girls at risk of being aborted or abandoned because of son preference in China! We also have saved Zhang Anni, the persecuted daughter of dissident Zhang Lin. She was called “the youngest prisoner of conscience in China.” We raised the visibility of her case internationally and then conducted quiet diplomacy to get her out of China. She and her sister are now living with my husband and me, and we are raising her as our own in our home.
Women’s Rights Without Frontiers has been called the “leading voice” in the battle against forced abortion and gendercide in China. We have testified six times at the U.S. Congress, three times at the European Parliament, twice at the British Parliament, and have briefed the Canadian Parliament, the State Department, the White House, the United Nations and the Vatican. Our efforts have born fruit. Both the European Parliament and the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women have issued statements condemning forced abortion. We are unique in having the attention of both the left and the right. In February I briefed the United Nations; in September I met with Pope Francis at the Vatican; in November I was the keynote speaker at an Amnesty International event in Hong Kong.
Women’s Rights Without Frontiers needs your support to continue. We need to raise $50,000.00 to continue our work. Please prayerfully consider partnering with us in fighting perhaps the greatest injustice of our age.
The women and babies of China urgently need your help! If you are led to partner with us, please send a check made out to Women’s Rights Without Frontiers to:
