A Modern Female David Takes on China’s Forced Abortion Monster
Fearless American Exposes Horrifying Truth of China’s War on Women
What does a high-powered, corporate lawyer do when God calls? If it is Ms. Reggie Littlejohn she challenges China’s government policy that forces thousands of women to abort babies they want to bring into life.
Catholics@Work is proud to present as our May 13 breakfast forum speaker Ms. Littlejohn, founder and president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, an international coalition that opposes forced abortion and sexual slavery in China.
In China women are routinely dragged from their homes and given brutal late-term abortions simply because they lack a Permit for Pregnancy. Some women die from the butchery.
Ms. Littlejohn’s exposure to China’s forced abortions and gendercide policy grew out of her pro bono work for Chinese women seeking asylum in the U.S. She founded the coalition (www.womensrightswithoutfrontiers.org/ ) to spotlight the horrors that China hides behind the verbal camouflage of its One Child Policy.
Ms. Littlejohn’s passionate and articulate efforts have gained attention around the world. She is featured in “It’s a Girl”, an authoritative documentary film about gendercide in China and India. She screened the film three times at the United Nations Conference on the Status of Women in March, 2013. Her address to the European Parliament became a chapter in the book, Human Rights in China After the Olympic Games.
She has received numerous awards for her brave and stalwart challenges to the human rights horrors that are pervasive in China today including, the National Pro-Life Recognition Award in January 2013; The Cardinal John J. O’Connor Pro-Life Award in February 2014 and was named one of Inside The Vatican Magazine’s ‘Top 10 People of 2013’.
And it seems all this wasn’t enough for God. Ms. Littlejohn felt a calling to write a screen play, a task she had never tried. The result is a screen play that takes on China’s One Child policy in a direct, engaging and surprising way. Characters range from a young oppressed Chinese family to a veteran American diplomat and an impressionable young American lawyer. The tension, feeling and pace of the script might best be described as “Blood Diamonds” and “Schindler’s List” meet “The Passion of Christ.” Despite its moralistic and Christian values the script won recognition at secular screen writer contests.
John Dunican, president of Catholics@Work says, “Reggie’s story will hold you spellbound. It is the kind of story that your first inclination is to say, ‘that can’t be true.’
“But it is. Everyone who hears her will walk away a changed person.
“Don’t miss this opportunity to learn the truth about the horrors of China’s One Child Policy, and the difference one woman can make.”
Dunican sums up Ms. Littlejohn’s work in the words of Winston Churchill, “Sometimes it is not enough to do our best; we have to do what is required.”
