ABOVE: CBN Information’s David Brody spoke with Ladies’s Rights With out Frontiers founder Reggie Littlejohn about how her group is saving infants in China.
Although China’s inhabitants management, “one-child coverage” is now a “three-child coverage,” a cussed reality stays: many pregnant girls are nonetheless compelled to have abortions, particularly if they’re having a woman.
A gaggle referred to as Women’s Rights Without Frontiers is on the bottom in China attempting to stop this, one child at a time.
“The households are nonetheless selectively aborting and abandoning child ladies as a result of even underneath the three-child coverage, there’s some desire, folks desire child boys,” Reggie Littlejohn, founder, and president of the group informed CBN Information.
Littlejohn’s group is exposing the compelled abortion and gendercide happening inside China.
“If they’ve two daughters first they usually’re developing for a 3rd baby, some households will simply abort child ladies till they lastly get a child boy for that third baby…we’re the one group on the earth that’s on the bottom within China serving to moms of child ladies maintain their daughters,” she mentioned.

So how is the group serving to households precisely? Littlejohn explains the method.
“We have saved about 300 child ladies and the best way we do it’s we have now area staff that come to the door and say, I perceive that you just’re pregnant with a child woman, otherwise you simply gave beginning to a child woman and that your mother-in-law is attempting to get you to desert her, like give her away some place else. And what we need to say is ladies are pretty much as good as boys and we offers you a month-to-month stipend of $25 a month to empower you to argue again in opposition to your husband and your mother-in-law, that you need to be capable of maintain your daughter and these girls are very, very grateful,” she defined.
“The $25 a month, that is some huge cash within the Chinese language countryside and it permits them to return to their husbands, return to their mothers-in-law and say, ‘Look, I can not abandon this child woman, look, she’s a fortunate woman, she’s already bringing cash into the household,'” Littlejohn added.
Publicly, China has been saying that they need to set up a coverage system to spice up beginning charges. They are saying it is a response to a rustic that’s dealing with an getting old inhabitants disaster. Reuters Information Company stories that China’s beginning fee is about to fall to a file low, dropping beneath 10 million new child infants.
Nonetheless, the fact on the bottom is way totally different than what the Chinese language authorities is saying. Ladies’s Rights With out Frontiers says regardless of China’s public stance, the problem of compelled abortions continues to be a significant downside.
“The factor that individuals do not perceive is that the entire brutality of the one-child coverage continues to be authorized underneath the three-child coverage,” Littlejohn mentioned. “So the brand new rule is each married couple is allowed to have three kids, which makes it nonetheless authorized for them to forcibly abort single girls and in addition fourth kids and they’re nonetheless carrying on compelled abortions among the many Uyghurs and the Tibetans.”

You may assume a problem like compelled and selective abortions in a communist nation could be a problem the left and proper might each agree on politically however sadly, that has not been the case.
“I established Ladies’s Rights With out Frontiers with the hope that left and proper people who find themselves pro-abortion and pro-life would come collectively to oppose compelled abortion as a result of it is not a selection and I have been very disillusioned,” Littlejohn informed CBN Information. “Principally, the individuals who help so-called abortion rights, actually haven’t mentioned something and actually haven’t helped in any respect with this effort. It is all of the pro-life neighborhood that has come behind me to attempt to cease these atrocities in China.”
