PRESS RELEASE: Reggie Littlejohn to United Nations: Forced Abortion Is Not the Answer to Climate Change

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: REGGIE LITTLEJOHN TO UNITED NATIONS: FORCED ABORTION IS NOT THE ANSWER TO CLIMATE CHANGE
Reggie Littlejohn, President of Women's Rights Without Frontiers, spoke at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women yesterday evening.
This year’s theme at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women is “Women’s empowerment and the link to sustainable development.” The UNCSW will also review the 2013 theme “The elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls.”
Littlejohn's remarks discussed the fact that the Chinese government has touted its “prevention” of 400 million lives as its contribution to the fight against global warming. She also addressed the fact that China’s new Two-Child Policy has not eliminated violence against women in the form of forced abortion, or violence against girls in the form of gendercide.
