Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

This holiday season, will you help "Save a Girl"? (Matching Funds!)
Lijuan, rescued from abandonment by our "Save a Girl" Campaign.
This holiday season, will you help “Save a Girl?”
A girl like Lijuan?
Lijuan’s parents already had one daughter, so when they found out
they were pregnant again, they hoped to have a boy. Families in the
countryside are “allowed” a second child if their first child is a girl.
Like most families in the countryside, Lijuan’s parents regarded this
second pregnancy as their last chance to have a boy.
When Lijuan’s mother was 8 months pregnant, she had an ultrasound
to determine the sex of the baby. After learning that she was carrying a
girl, Lijuan’s mother immediately resolved to “give her away” -- where,
we don’t know. Some girls are left on the steps to orphanages or in
public parks. Others are simply abandoned in fields to die.
Women’s Rights Without Frontiers was alerted and one of our
fieldworkers rushed to Lijuan’s mother to encourage her not to abandon
her daughter. So many of the mothers in our program are astonished that
someone would take the trouble to travel to their doorsteps to tell them
that girls have the same right to live and to be loved as boys – and
who will back up that message with a monthly stipend to help them
support their daughter for a full year.
Our fieldworker arrived just in the nick of time -- Lijuan was
born earlier than expected. Thanks to the “Save a Girl” campaign, her
mother had changed her mind and decided to keep her daughter. The life
of a girl, a mother, and a family has been forever changed.
And that’s how change starts – we are ending gendercide in China, one baby girl at a time.
Double your impact! We have $5,000 in matching funds!
Would you consider becoming a monthly donor, a “GirlSaver?”
For only $25 per month or $300 per year, our GirlSavers have helped
WRWF save at-risk baby girls in China, girls like Lijuan, who might not
be alive and in the arms of their parents if one of our undercover
fieldworkers had not met her mother and assured her that little girls
are just as special as boys. Because of your generosity, we can continue
to save girls and advance pro-girl/pro-woman values in China.
YES, I WANT TO HELP END GENDERCIDE AND FORCED ABORTION IN CHINA!
donation enables Women’s Rights Without Frontiers to continue to be a
voice for the voiceless women and children of China. This huge effort
comes at a cost. We need your support. Please give as generously as you
can. Every donation makes a difference! Thank you for your generosity!
