Dear Friends:
In this season of giving, please remember the women and babies of China, who are still enduring conditions that are beyond imagination.  At this moment, there are women in China who have gotten pregnant without a “birth permit” and are still in danger of being dragged away for a forced abortion. Baby girls in China are still in danger of selective abortion and abandonment.
You may have heard that China has “abandoned” its One Child Policy. This is not true.
Regarding the new Two-Child Policy, blind activist Chen Guangcheng tweeted, “This is nothing to be happy about. First the (Chinese government) would kill any baby after one. Now they will kill any baby after two.”

The brutality continues. Under China’s new Two-Child Policy, unmarried mothers and third babies are still being forcibly aborted. On July 22, 2016, for example, a Guangdong couple was told they must have an abortion or both lose their government jobs. The wife was eight months pregnant. On October 28, 2016, the BBC ran a groundbreaking report, interviewing a family currently in hiding to give birth to their third child. The father stated, “If we weren’t in hiding, they would have forced us to have an abortion.”

Further, according to the most recent State Department Report, the number of abortions in China has increased from 13 to 23 million a year. 23 million abortions a year comes to 63,013 abortions a day, 2625 abortions an hour, 43 per minute!
Meanwhile, China leads the world in the sex-selective abortion of baby girls. Our Save a Girl campaign is saving the lives of baby girls at risk of being aborted or abandoned because of son preference in China! Through our network of on-the- ground fieldworkers, we are able to reach women who are pregnant with or who have just given birth to a girl, and are being pressured to abort or abandon her. We offer these mothers encouragement and a monthly stipend for a year, empowering them to keep their daughters. We have an overwhelming success rate and have saved hundreds of precious babies through this campaign.

After two years’ study, Anni won a competition play at Carnegie Hall in December 2016.
We also rescued Zhang Anni, the persecuted daughter of dissident Zhang Lin. She was called “China’s youngest prisoner of conscience,” as she was kidnapped out of her elementary school at age 10 and detained overnight. The Chinese government persecuted Anni in an attempt to silence her heroic father. We raised the visibility of Anni’s case internationally and then conducted quiet diplomacy to get her out of China. She is now living with my husband and me and we are raising her as our own daughter. After only two years of study, Anni won a piano competition and will be performing in Carnegie Hall in December 2016! We are so proud of our beautiful, talented Chinese daughter. She is a constant reminder of the beauty and brilliance that are being lost every day in China through sex-selective abortion.

Reggie has been called “the leading voice” in the movement to end forced abortion and gendercide in China.

Women’s Rights Without Frontiers has been called the “leading voice” in the battle against forced abortion and gendercide in China. Indeed, I was astonished and humbled to be named one of the “Top Ten People” of 2013 by Inside the Vatican magazine. We have testified eight times at the U.S. Congress, three times at the European Parliament, twice at the British Parliament, and have briefed the Canadian Parliament, the State Department, the White House, the United Nations and the Vatican. Our efforts have been fruitful. Both the European Parliament and the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women have issued statements condemning forced abortion.
While a student at Yale Law School, Reggie had the privilege of working with Saint Mother Teresa in Calcutta.
Women’s Rights Without Frontiers needs your support to continue. We need to raise $50,000.00 to continue our work.Please prayerfully consider partnering with us in fighting perhaps the greatest injustice of our age.
