FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MARCH FOR LIFE D.C: MARCHING TO SAVE BABY GIRLS AND ABANDONED WIDOWS IN CHINA

WASHINGTON, D.C. January 23, 2020. Women’s Rights Without Frontiers will march to “End Gendercide” – the sex-selective abortion of baby girls -- in China, at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. on January 24. In addition, WRWF will be marching on behalf of abandoned widows.
Reggie Littlejohn, President of WRWF, stated, “We believe that women have the right to give birth to their daughters without being pressured to selectively abort them. And we also believe that elderly women have the right to live out their days with dignity, with food on the table every day, knowing that someone cares about them in their old age – even if that person lives on the other side of the earth.”
The sex-selective abortion or abandonment of baby girls has continued under the Two Child Policy. For example, a newborn baby girl was found abandoned at the bottom of a six-foot wall in a trash-filled courtyard in Fuzhou City, Fujian Province on Friday, June 1, 2018, International Children’s Day. She was lying next to her placenta with her umbilical cord still attached. Although no one witnessed how the newborn got into the courtyard, it is believed she was thrown over the wall, as she was suffering from major injuries consistent with such trauma: a fractured skull, bleeding in the brain, and injuries to her heart and lungs. The neighbors who found her called the police, who took the infant to the hospital. Read the original report and watch a video here.
According to the new Congressional-Executive Commission in China Report, released on January 8, 2020, “Local-level officials reportedly continue to enforce compliance with family planning policies using methods including heavy fines, job termination, and coerced abortion.”
According to one U.N. estimate, up to 200 million women are missing in the world today because of sex-selective abortion. This gendercide has created a gender imbalance in China, where there are an estimated 37 million more males living than females. This gender imbalance is in turn driving human trafficking and sexual slavery, within China and from the surrounding countries.
WRWF’s “Save a Girl” Campaign has saved hundreds of baby girls from sex-selective abortion or abandonment.
At the other end of life, China has the highest female suicide rate in the world. According to a State Department Report, 590 women end their lives every day in China. China also has a skyrocketing rate of senior suicide, which has increased 500% in the past 20 years. The One Child Policy has destroyed the family structure in China. In the past, the Chinese enjoyed large families and it was not a burden for children and grandchildren to support the elderly. Now many elderly are completely abandoned and destitute, especially elderly widows. And the sad solution for many is to end their lives.
Littlejohn concluded, “We at Women’s Rights Without Frontiers are committed to helping Chinese women at every stage of their lives. We help baby girls to be born, instead of being selectively aborted or abandoned because they are girls. Likewise, we help their mothers defend themselves against the pressure to abort or abandon their baby girls. And now we are extending help to elderly widows, to ease their suffering and give them dignity and new hope in the twilight season of their lives. We do this because of the infinite value of each human life, from beginning to end.”
