"Save a Girl" campaign launches on first International Day of the Girl Child

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 11, 2012/Christian Newswire --

October 11 marks the first International Day of the Girl Child, as recognized by the UN General Assembly. To coincide with this event, Women's Rights Without Frontiers is launching its "Save a Girl" campaign to end gendercide in China.

Experts estimate that between 160 and 200 million women are missing in the world today because of the sex-selective abortion of baby girls. Because of this gendercide, there are now 37 million more men living in China than women, which gender imbalance is driving human trafficking and sexual slavery not only in China but in many of the surrounding nations as well.

In response, Women's Rights Without Frontiers has launched its "Save a Girl" campaign to end gendercide. According to WRWF President Reggie Littlejohn, "This campaign is a way that people can directly help save lives in China." The campaign is designed to:

  • Combat Gendercide. WRWF is giving monthly stipends for a year to mothers who are at risk of aborting or abandoning their baby girls. This money helps the mother resist pressure to abort or abandon their baby girls.
  • Fight Forced Abortion. WRWF gives monthly stipends to help support women who are pregnant without a birth permit and are hiding or running to escape forced abortions.

Littlejohn states:

We are defeating gendercide and forced abortion, one baby at a time. It's astonishing how little money it takes to save a life. For example, one of our baby girls was born to poor farmers. Her father wanted a son and was pressuring his wife to leave the baby out in the field to die. A WRWF Field Worker called the mother, who said that if we would help her, she would keep the girl. WRWF began giving her a small monthly stipend. Her daughter has become an adorable girl and is now greatly loved by both her parents. Her mother told WRWF: 'You saved my daughter's life. Thanks to you and your organization.'

The campaign also gives stipends to women who are fleeing forced abortions.
