For many Chinese women, keeping a daughter is a battleand the stakes are unthinkably high.

 

A Chinese woman may not become pregnant without the government’s permission. Under China’s One-Child Policy, all couples must apply for a birth permit before starting a pregnancy. Nearly two-thirds of Chinese couples (more than 900 million people) may have only one child and will be issued only one birth permit in their lives. Pregnancy without a permit is illegal.

 

If an illegal pregnancy is discovered, the mother has two choices: abort the baby or pay an unbearable fine. Chinese data...

The injustice of China's One-Child Policy has gone on long enough. It's time for us to walk in Jesus' freedom and together see the least of the least — China's girls and mothers — restored to life, value and dignity in Christ.

On July 23, 2012, a man in Anshan City was searching through a trash bin when he came across a baby discarded in a plastic bag. She was a newborn girl, abandoned by her family and suffering from a 2-inch knife cut across her throat.

 

Horrified bystanders called police, who took the baby to a hospital where doctors performed emergency surgery. One person who witnessed the girl being taken to hospital later told a reporter: “She was still breathing and had a heartbeat. Blood from the wound stained the whole body.”

 

Mercifully and miraculously, the little girl survived. Doctors said that she would have died if the knife wound had been only slightly deeper.

On the eve of China’s Children’s Day on June 1st, over 37 million girls have been eliminated—killed before birth, or shortly after, to make room for boys. This takes place under China’s brutally enforced One-Child Policy. What does this mean to China and to the world? Nothing good, for sure: increased sex trafficking, a spreading HIV epidemic, and more. Exactly how bad it will be, no one knows.
