Give thanks for life by saving one: introducing the ‘Save A Girl’ campaign
by Kristen Walker Hatten November 22, 2012

"Reggie Littlejohn is busy.

When we speak on the phone, she’s in the process of traveling through Washington, D.C., by train and on foot. At one point, her train goes underground and we’re cut off. Two weeks ago, we couldn’t speak because she was traveling in Europe.

Why is Reggie Littlejohn so busy? Because, as president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, she was involved in the documentary film It’s A Girl, which is being screened around the world as we speak. Recently, it was shown at the British Parliament and the European Parliament, to a diverse audience.“I think it’s pretty encouraging that the film was featured in the Amnesty International Film Festival just a few weeks ago,” says Littlejohn.“Amnesty International is not a pro-life organization.”

Littlejohn is also busy because her organization has launched a campaign that directly, literally saves baby girls. The Save A Girl campaign -- http://womensrightswithoutfrontiers.org/index... -- is one that anyone can get involved in, and it is an excellent way to give thanks for life this Thanksgiving season. The fact is, the multifarious crimes against women, girls, and the unborn in China and India explored in It’s A Girl – forced abortion, female feticide, infanticide, dowry death, and more – are not going away without help from people outside those countries. People like me. And you.

[...]

While these crimes against females sound foreign and unbelievable, the sad truth is they have come to America.“Studies have indicated that there is sex-selective abortion in the U.S. in communities that practice it in their native land,” says Littlejohn.” The thing that concerns me is the connection between sex-selection abortion and coercion. In most cases I believe in the U.S., as well as China and India, women are under intense pressure to abort if it’s a girl.”

So. The big question: what do we do? How do we stop this?

[...]
Littlejohn explained to me,“We have a network inside China of field workers who find women who have had an ultrasound and found out they’re pregnant with a girl and have decided to abort her, or have given birth to a girl and want to abandon her out in a field so she’ll die,” explains Littlejohn.“We go to her and say,‘Don’t abort your daughter. Don’t abandon your daughter. She is a beautiful girl. We will give you a stipend every month for a year to help you keep this girl.’”

Does that sound incredible? Wait ‘til you hear this:“In every case where we have approached these women, they have kept their girls.”

“We ask people to contribute $25 a month,” says Littlejohn.“Twenty dollars goes to the women and $5 goes to cover our costs and to the field workers who are bravely finding these women and getting the money into their hands.” Right now, after having existed for only a little over a month, Save A Girl can claim 28 lives saved and women helped.“We want to have a thousand babies we’re supporting this time next year. Our only limitation is the finances.”

So Save A Girl is saving more than girls – this campaign is saving babies of both genders, and saving women from the horror of forced abortion.

For those of us who read about gendercide and the crimes against women in China and India and say, If only there were something I could do, this is the answer. For about the price of your monthly – or weekly!– Starbucks budget, you can literally save a life.

This Thanksgiving, give thanks for your life and the lives of all women by giving to Save A Girl. Your donation will literally save a life.

Visit the Women’s Rights Without Frontiers website to donate and share this campaign.
