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.

Today is Children's Day in China - 400 million missing
Anqi, saved by WRWF's Save a Girl Campaign
June 1st, all provinces in China celebrate “Children’s Day” with lavish
children’s art exhibitions and performances. Meanwhile, no mention
will be made of the fact that China has “prevented” more than 400
million children from being born, often by forced abortion and
sterilization, through its brutal One (now Two) Child Policy. In
addition, millions of Chinese baby girls are being aborted or abandoned,
just because they girls.
In fact, this precious baby girl, “Anqi,” is celebrating Children’s Day because Women’s Rights Without Frontiers’ (WRWF) Save a Girl Campaign
empowered her mother to save her life. When Anqi’s mother had Anqi’s
older sister, her mother-in-law was unhappy. She told Anqi’s mother
that the next baby would be a boy.
Anqi’s mother became pregnant with her second child, her mother-in-law
wanted to find out the baby’s gender. Anqi’s mother refused. She knew
that her mother-in-law would force her to have an abortion if the baby
were a girl. Chinese women not only face pressure from the government
to abort their “illegal” babies, but also from family members who impose
mother did not want an abortion; she wanted her baby, whether a boy or a
girl. But her mother-in-law persisted. She went to a fortuneteller,
and followed her instructions on how to ensure that the baby would be a
boy. When Anqi was born a girl, her grandmother was very upset and
tried to pressure Anqi’s mother to “give her daughter away.” In the
Chinese countryside, to “give away” a daughter sometimes means to give
her to a childless couple. Sometimes it means to leave her in a field
mother did not want to give away her daughter, and with our help, has
been able to keep her daughter. Our WRWF fieldworker enabled Anqi’s
mother to keep her baby. Our fieldworker offered Anqi’s mother a monthly
stipend for a year to empower her to keep her daughter.
the help of this stipend, Anqi’s mother is defying the culturally
imposed pressure from her mother-in-law and is raising Anqi. She has
explained to her mother-in-law that “strangers in the United States” are
helping financially to support this second daughter, so the family
members should love her more!
It is such an honor to help brave women like Anqi’s mother! And you have a unique opportunity to help as well!

girls, and yet there are millions more who are being aborted or
abandoned just because they are girls. Some baby girls are born to
families so poor that their health is at risk. Each one of these girls
is infinitely precious. Please help us save them by donating to our “Save a Girl” Campaign.
