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.

Give Thanks by Saving a Girl in China!
“Bao Shu,” one of hundreds of girls saved by our Save a Girl Campaign
Rights Without Frontiers wishes you and your family a very happy
Thanksgiving! As you gather with your family to give thanks, is there a
woman or girl in your life you’d like to thank – for just being
herself? If so, here is a creative way to let her know you care!
For Thanksgiving, you can thank a girl by helping “Save a Girl” – more info below!
Meet “Bao Shu.” Isn’t she lovely?
Her wide eyes are so full of life. A mother couldn’t help but want to show off a beautiful daughter like this . . .
Unless she was born in China and is a despised “second daughter.”
Loved as she is by her mother, Bao Shu was hated by her grandmother on her father’s side.
Little Bao Shu was just four months old when we learned of her desperate
situation. With an older sister, Bao Shu is a second daughter. Even
under the new Two Child Policy, millions of couples who already have a
daughter will abort or abandon (“give up”) a second daughter, because
they want to try again for a son. The main one pressuring them to do
this is usually the father’s mother.
Shu’s parents have lived in a remote village in rural China for
generations. Her grandmother on her father’s side has suffered with
painful gout. These rural farming families do not have medical
insurance. Bao Shu’s grandmother can barely walk, and her family has to
buy her medication. This expense has brought financial stress to this
When her grandmother learned that Bao Shu would be a girl instead of a
boy, she became extremely depressed. Instead of being overjoyed at the
birth of her beautiful granddaughter, she thought that Bao Shu’s birth
was “an unfair punishment to her family.” The grandmother complained
that she was in bad health and did not have a grandson. Baby Bao Shu
was being blamed for her grandmother’s depression, for using up
resources that could buy gout medication, and for using up the family’s
permission to have a second child under the Two-Child Policy, making it
impossible for the family to have a boy later. Bao Shu’s mother loves
her very much and did not know what to do.
When Women’s Rights Without Frontiers found out about Bao Shu’s
situation, our undercover fieldworker knocked on the door of Bao Shu’s
home and gave her mother a message of hope. She told her, “Girls are as
good as boys. Both of your daughters are precious and you have the
right to keep your second daughter.”
Our fieldworker told Bao Shu’s mother about our “Save a Girl”
campaign. She told them we provide a monthly cash stipend for a full
year to mothers to empower them to keep their daughters, especially
second daughters. Bao Shu’s mother is very grateful to receive this
life-saving help when she did not have anywhere else to turn!
Not only that, but Bao Shu’s grandmother changed her attitude. She said
that God did remember her and sent an angel (our fieldworker!) to help
her family out. Because of this help, she has been encouraged that “God
is fair.” Now, she believes that Bao Shu has brought good luck to the
This Thanksgiving, will you give thanks for the girl (or woman) in your life by helping “Save a Girl” in China?
What better way of expressing gratitude for the woman or girl in your life than by rescuing a woman and a girl in China?

to help women and girls in China.
Step 2: Indicate in the notes section of your donation the woman or
girl you wish to honor, and her email address. We will send her a

“Save a Girl” Campaign.
Will you help us save women and girls in China? Become a “GirlSaver!”
Won’t you help us save more girls like Bao Shu? We
have saved hundreds of girls, and yet there are millions more like her
who are being aborted or abandoned just because they are girls. Each one
of these girls is infinitely precious. Please help us save them by
donating to our “Save a Girl” Campaign.
$25 per month, or $300 per year, our GirlSavers have helped
WRWF save at-risk babies in China, babies like Bao Shu, who may have
died or who may have been separated from their mothers if one of our
undercover fieldworkers had not met her mother and assured her that
little girls are as special as boys. We put our money where our mouth
is, offering practical assistance to empower these mothers to keep their
