Remember the Women and Girls of China on Giving Tuesday

Today is Giving Tuesday, and on this day it is our greatest desire that you would consider giving to the women and girls of China. We are working with Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, an international coalition that opposes forced abortion and sexual slavery in China. Our goal is to raise public awareness regarding the coercive enforcement of China’s One Child Policy, the connection between this coercion and human trafficking in Asia, and the other human rights abuses that arise out of this coercive enforcement.  

In recent news under the misleading headline, “China to Ease One-Child Policy,” Xinhua reports that China will now lift the ban on a second child, if either parent is an only child. This minor reform will not “ease” the One Child Policy. It will merely tweak it. The problem with the One Child Policy is not the number of children “allowed.” Rather, it is the fact that the Chinese Communist Party is telling women how many children they can have and then enforcing that limit through forced abortion, forced sterilization and infanticide. Regardless of the number of children allowed, women who get pregnant without permission will still be dragged out of their homes, strapped down to tables and forced to abort babies that they want, even up to the ninth month of pregnancy.  

Your generous gift supports Women's Rights Without Frontiers' fight against gendercide and forced abortion. WRWF is working on the ground in China to protect women who are hiding to escape forced abortions and giving much-needed financial help to mothers of baby girls.  

The more we raise, the more women we can help. If we reach our goal of $30,000 we will be able to support 100 mothers and their baby girls for a year. 

Reggie Littlejohn speaks after Hong Kong Premiere of It’s a Girl:  
Women’s Rights Without Frontiers’
President Reggie Littlejohn was a featured speaker in Amnesty International’s film series against gender violence, where It’s a Girl screened for the very first time on Chinese soil! Screenings of the documentary took place at the Hong Kong Arts Centre on November 18th and 19th. 

Littlejohn’s visit demonstrates a growing international opposition to forced abortion as violence against women. While Littlejohn has addressed the issue before the United States Congress, European Parliament, British Parliament, United Nations and Vatican, this visit was her first time speaking against forced abortion and gendercide from Chinese soil.  Littlejohn’s remarks were broadcast into mainland China by Voice of America.
