Something missing from China's celebration

pregnant and ChinaA pro-life group noticed that China was silent on criticism, at least in one area, as it recently celebrated its 70th anniversary.

China celebrated the milestone with a huge military display, including a nuclear missile said to be able to reach the United States in 30 minutes. But Reggie Littlejohn of Women's Rights Without Frontiers tells OneNewsNow the country drew a curtain to hide its one-child and now two-child policy.

"Regarding the status of women … Chairman Mao said many years ago, 'Women hold up half the sky,'" Littlejohn notes. "I tell you what -- 400,000 forced abortions under the one-child policy -- and now the two-child policy -- does not count as women holding up half the sky. It counts as women being ground under the boot of communism."

Presently, if a couple has two children and gets pregnant with a third, then they will either have to choose to abort the third child or be forced to do so. Forced abortions have occurred in China for many years.

"When they announced that they were moving from a one-child policy to two-child policy, they gave two reasons," Littlejohn reports. "One was that they need more babies because their population is aging, but the other reason is that the one-child policy has been the subject of international criticism. So as one who has been dedicating her life to international criticism of the one-child policy, I feel absolutely certain that we were being heard."

Women's Rights Without Frontiers has a program to assist elderly widows and a program to reward the women who choose to give their baby girls life.
