Reggie Littlejohn is founder of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers . She is a tireless opponent of the oppression of women, which includes forced abortion, forced sterilization, and sex-selection abortion. She has spoken at NRLC’s convention and given testimony before Congress.
We reposted an article she wrote today about the speech human rights activist Chen Guangcheng gave last night to the Republican National Convention. He’d been imprisoned for exposing the widespread use of forced abortion and sterilization in Linyi, China before he escaped house arrest.
Chances pro-abortion Democrats would have had him speak last week? Zero.
Back in 2011, when Vice President Biden was in China, he referenced China’s brutal one-child policy (built around forced abortion and infanticide). He told an audience at Sichuan University, “Your policy has been one which I fully understand — I’m not second-guessing — of one child per family.”
What about Tera Myers, the mother of Samuel, a child with Down syndrome? Would Biden or Harris or anyone else at the Democrats’ National Convention want to hear how her family stared down doctors who suggested she “terminate the pregnancy”?
Of course not. That’s too close to the whole topic of aborting babies because they have a genetic anomaly or are the “wrong” sex—and no Democrat would willingly step into that minefield.
What about Sr. Deirdre “Dede” Byrne? “As followers of Christ, we are called to stand up for life against the politically correct or fashionable of today. We must fight against a legislative agenda that supports and even celebrates destroying life in the womb. Keep in mind, the laws we create define how we see our humanity. We must ask ourselves: What are we saying when we go into a womb and snuff out an innocent, powerless, voiceless life?”
What would Democrats with functioning consciences actually say to themselves if they really asked themselves, “What we are saying when we go into a womb and snuff out an innocent, powerless, voiceless life?”
Those are just three strands of a narrative woven into the very fabric of the 2020 Republican National Convention that could never, ever be considered by a party dedicated to abortion on demand until birth, paid for by taxpayers–a “liberty” that has been extended to actively opposes attempts to extend medical attention to babies who survive abortions.
Night and day difference. One pro-death, the other pro-life.
