Pro-lifers already had one great reason to attend the Thursday evening general session of the National Right to Life Convention: pro-life champion Chris Smith will be address the audience about “Where Are All the Girls? The Social Consequences of China’s One-Child Policy.”
Now they have a chance to learn from a second outstanding expert on China’s brutally repressive policy, which is built around forced abortion:
Reggie Littlejohn, president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, will also speak June 28. (There is still time to register for the Convention and to reserve a hotel room at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia. Just go to www.nrlconvention.org.)
National Right to Life News Today readers will instantly recognize Ms. Littlejohn’s name. Along with Cong. Smith (R-NJ), she played a major role in leading the international effort to free blind pro-life human rights activist Chen Guangcheng, who arrived in the U.S. May 19,
Women’s Rights Without Frontiers is an international coalition to expose and oppose forced abortion, gendercide and sexual slavery in China. Littlejohn has testified five times at the United States Congress, twice at the European Parliament, and at the British and Irish Parliaments as well. Her first Address at the European Parliament was included as a chapter in the book, “Human Rights in China After the Olympic Games,” available on Amazon.com.
Women’s Rights Without Frontiers has the only Chinese website in the world dedicated to exposing the truth about the One Child Policy. Reggie has appeared eight times on Voice of America, the official U.S. broadcast into China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. She is featured in the feature-length documentaries, “Cries from China,” about forced abortion, and “It’s a Girl,” about gendercide. A graduate of Yale Law School, she has represented Chinese refugees in their political asylum cases.
For just one example, of Reggie’s tremendous testimony on Chen’s behalf, go to “Chinese Communist Repression Against the Supporters of Chen Guangcheng: He Peirong and Jiang Tianyong.”
