MARCHING TO SAVE BABY GIRLS AND ABANDONED WIDOWS IN CHINA

 



Reggie Littlejohn with Anni Zhang and her father Lin Zhang march for babies and widows in China at the 2019 March for Life
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 21.  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 Three Child Policy, and poverty has been exascerbated by the Covid lockdowns.  "The families we serve are in poor, farming communities.  Because of Covid lockdowns, our families were at times unable bring their vegetables to market, deepening their poverty and placing their baby girls at risk," Littlejohn stated. 
Sex-selective abortion is not a government policy, but is culturally enforced by families.  "Women in China still need our help and support to push back against husbands and mothers-in-law who think that a baby girl -- especially a second or even a third daughter -- is not worth the expense of raising and should be 'given away' so the couple can have a boy," Littlejohn continued.

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, abandonment, or extreme poverty.
At the other end of life, China has an alarming female suicide rate, especially in the countryside.  China also has a skyrocketing rate of senior suicide, and elderly widows are at risk. The One Child Policy 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 also to feed their girls and keep their families together.  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.”

If Aborted Babies Had Voices

This article was originally published on July 20, 2021. We feel that it’s vital to remember as we March for Life today and remember the millions of babies killed by abortion.

Remembering Jim Sedlak (1943-2022)

“When people ask why we oppose Planned Parenthood, we tell them that it is because PP is only concerned with sex education, birth control, and abortion. It targets our children and comes between parents and their children. And it does it all with our tax money.” —Jim SedlakWeek in ReviewToday is the National March for Life. As we gather to march, we recall the wisdom of MFL founder Nellie Gray, who called for a total abolition of abortion. 

ALL in the NewsALL’s no exceptions position on abortion made its rounds through the media this week, with interviews and articles from sources like Breitbart and the Christian Broadcasting Network. 

Pro-Life Social MediaPlanned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia isn’t too pleased with the new Republican governor, Glenn Younkin. The state’s Department of Human Resource Management issued a memo outlining new policies for its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion officers.
