Exposing Inhumane, Coercive Population Control: Commentary

I am president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers. Our mission is to end forced abortion and the sex-selective abortion of baby girls in China. … Yes, the “one-child” policy has now moved to the “two-child” policy, but it is still an inhumane example of coercive population control. As blind activist Chen Guangcheng succinctly tweeted last year when the policy was changed, “This is nothing to be happy about. First the #CCP would kill any baby after one. Now they will kill any baby after two. #ChinaOneChildPolicy” Any and all babies born out of wedlock — to unmarried women — are automatically considered illegal and are subject to forced abortion. And given the cultural bias toward boys, second children who are daughters are especially vulnerable to being aborted. The horrible practice of forced abortion in China is why I founded Women’s Rights Without Frontiers. This is about fighting China’s “war on women and girls.” To understand the suffering caused by forced abortion in China, watch our short video, “Stop Forced Abortion — China’s War on Women” (WomensRightsWithoutFrontiers.org/?nav=stop-forced-abortion). China has an iron grip over the wombs of women. The Chinese Communist Party intrudes into the bedrooms and between the sheets of the families in China by requiring ultrasound checks to make sure women’s IUDs are still in place and paying informants who monitor women’s reproductive health. The problem with the one-child policy or the two-child policy lies not in the number of children allowed. The problem lies with the coercive enforcement of the birth limit, whatever that limit might be. Whether a couple is allowed to have one child or two...

10 Reasons Women Should Be Pro-Life

In today’s society, if you’re female, you’re expected to be in favor of abortion. You’re practically an outcast if you confess your pro-life views, and to be pro-life, you often have to deal with people calling you anti-feminist. But this is one of the biggest lies that exists. Anyone who cares about women, who believes in women, or who is a woman, should without a doubt be against abortion. Here’s why… Abortion is an insult to all women. Telling a woman she needs to have an abortion is belittling. Anyone who says a woman is too young or that she can’t handle going to school and having a child, or working and having a child is telling her that she isn’t good enough, smart enough, or strong enough. “How is it ‘feminism’ to tell us that we are too irresponsible or lazy or ill-equipped to raise our children,” asks Kristen Hatten, Vice President of New Wave Feminists. “That we either need to abort or get the government to pay our way through life? That is the opposite of feminism. That is the opposite of empowerment.” 2. Pregnancy is empowering, abortion is not. Carrying your baby and giving birth while you’re going to school or working at your job or furthering your career is a feminist move. It’s also empowering to succeed when people are telling you that you can’t. You can love and care for your baby while you pursue other goals. Your children don’t have to suffer or die in order for you to succeed in other areas of your life. 3. Women are not sexual objects. This...

How Can We Talk About the Rights of Women if Girls are Killed in Abortion and Infanticide?

Sunday, 11th October 2015 marked the International Day of the Girl Child. Perhaps the saddest aspect of this day is the fact that it’s still needed. When the United Nations General Assembly first designated the Day in December, 2011, the plan was to recognize the rights of girls around the world, and the unique challenges that they face. Each year, the observance Day is given a theme. In previous years, the need to end child marriage and secure proper education were prevalent. The theme for 2015 is the Power of the Adolescent Girl. While the UN comments on this year’s Day are commendable – acknowledging that girls have the right to a safe, educated and healthy life both during adolescence and as they mature — unfortunately, the rights that girls acquire in adolescence and beyond are only relevant if another, far more fundamental right has been protected previously – namely, the right to life itself. As the basic human right, there is no other right that is more important. Indeed, no other right can be availed if the right to life is denied but this simple fact is lost on many people, even an organisation as powerful as the UN. Back in March 2010, the Economist magazine ran a cover story that talked about “the war on baby girls”. It spoke about a horrifying new reality – how, according to official estimates, over 100 million girls were missing from the world due to gendercide, abortion and infanticide. Later surveys estimated that the figure had risen even further. The trickle-down effect of such blunt gender imbalancing has resulted in the...

#PPSellsBabyParts, Statutory Rape Cover-up, Billing Fraud, Aiding Sex Trafficking, Scheduling Sex Selection Abortions, Reproductive Racism… So, WHY Exactly Does our Government Pay PP One-Half BILLION of Our Tax Dollars $$ Every Year?

If Planned Parenthood (PP) is not funded by the federal government, access to healthcare for women and children will not suffer. Planned Parenthood claims they care about women; but they don’t – just look at their actions. They get over $500 million a year in our taxpayer money and make more than $120 million in profit, all while having abortion quotas — http://dailycaller.com/2014/07/22/planned-parenthood-has-abortion-quotas-says-former-clinic-director/ The PP organization has been caught covering up statutory rape — http://liveaction.org/monalisa/ double-billing taxpayers — http://dailysignal.com/2014/07/29/report-planned-parenthood-boosting-profit-overbilling-customers/ aiding and abetting sex traffickers — http://liveaction.org/traffick/ scheduling sex-selective abortions — http://liveaction.org/gendercide/ and accepting money to abort African American children — http://liveaction.org/the-planned-parenthood-racism-project/ Quite frankly, we’ve had enough. It’s time to relieve Planned Parenthood of our taxpayer dollars. The Heritage Foundation and ADF made a map comparing the number of PP sites nationwide (665) to community health centers (13,000). Now they have made available maps for each state showing the location of each PP business and the community health centers. See them here — https://alliancedefendingfreedom2.app.box.com/s/qch7wzfiidvjcsz02fxscozyi2z81qs8 Finally, Dr. Marguerite Duane, a popular MedSFL speaker explained this very well in a recent article, For Women’s Health Care, Here’s the Better Alternative to Planned Parenthood published by NationalReview.com on Aug. 26, 2015 — http://www.nationalreview.com/article/423096/defund-planned-parenthood-fund-community-health-centers    (see below) RELATED: State Maps showing location of community health centers & PP sites — https://alliancedefendingfreedom2.app.box.com/s/qch7wzfiidvjcsz02fxscozyi2z81qs8 [18 Sept 2015, [email protected]]   For Women’s Health Care, Here’s the Better Alternative than Planned Parenthood With the release of yet another shocking Planned Parenthood video, defenders of the organization continue to argue that defunding Planned Parenthood would, as Hillary Clinton put it, “deny women . . . the health care they need...

North Dakota Enhances Penalties for Forced Abortions

AUL-Based Bill Becomes North Dakota Law, Providing Enhanced Penalties for Those Exploiting Women and Girls Trapped in Human Trafficking “Sex trafficking is modern day slavery,” said AUL’s Dr. Charmaine Yoest. “We must protect the women and girls victimized by those profiting from their misery.” “Human trafficking is a modern day horror that demands a coordinated and compassionate response. With the passage of enhanced penalties for those criminals who force the women and girls in their control to have abortions, North Dakota lawmakers are effectively addressing another tool criminals use to victimize the powerless,” said Americans United for Life President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest. North Dakota SB 2275 is the 6th bill to become law during this legislative session, based partially on AUL model legislation found in Defending Life. “Sex trafficking is modern day slavery. We must protect the women and girls victimized by those profiting from their misery. This law, which provided additional penalties for human traffickers, represents a true, bipartisan effort,” noted Dr. Yoest, “And AUL offers special thanks to the leadership of Rep. Dan Ruby, Sen. Lonnie Laffen, Sen. Randall Burckhard, Senator Joe Miller, Senator Oley Larsen, and Senator Larry Luick.” Before Governor Jack Dalrymple signed the law, it was passed unanimously by the North Dakota House and passed the Senate by 46 to 1. During the debate over the bill, the prevalence of forced abortion among women and girls trapped in human trafficking was documented in a letter sent to lawmakers. This new law will provide enhanced penalties for individuals who are engaged in human trafficking and force or coerce their victims to have an...
