BEIJINGOn Tuesday, March 5th, Xi Jinping will officially be installed as President at the gathering of China’s 12th National People’s Congress in Beijing.  All Girls Allowed calls on followers of Jesus around the world to join together that day in prayer and fasting, to call on God to bring a swift and final end to the One-Child Policy.

 

Chinese state media recently reported that the government is looking to consolidate several ministries in order to streamline processes and reduce bureaucracy.  One proposal that appears to be on the table is the potential folding of the Family Planning Commission, which enforces the One-Child Policy, into the Ministry of Health. 

 

The potential outcome of such a merger is unclear, but there are two possible scenarios: (1) the One-Child Policy will be enforced with greater brutality as the Family Planning Commission gains access to hospitals and clinics; or (2) the merger will effectively eliminate the Family Planning Commission and strip all of its workers of their authority to carry out forced and coerced abortions.

 

All Girls Allowed is urging churches around the world to join in unity with the Chinese church to pray that the Lord would effectively eliminate the Family Planning Commission through this merger, thus beginning the process of ending the One-Child Policy.  Should such a historic move occur, it would follow several reports that the Chinese government is contemplating moving to a Two-Child Policy in March 2013.  It would also fulfill what began last summer, when provinces representing 87% of China declared bans on late-term forced abortions.

                                          

The timing of this particular Congress is significant as well, since Li Keqiang, the leader who oversaw the 2010 National Census, will be installed as Premier.  With more intimate knowledge of China’s under-population problem, it is possible that Li may be supportive of ending the One-Child Policy.

 

China’s government has come under greater international pressure to end the One-Child Policy following the gruesome image of Feng Jianmei’s forcibly aborted baby that surfaced last June.  The pressure continues, as Feng recently revealed in a television interview that she has yet to receive the compensation and justice that was promised to her by the government.  Another recent tragedy, in which an over-quota child was run over and killed by Family Planning Officials, has brought further embarrassment to the Chinese government around the One-Child Policy.

 

Chai Ling, Founder of All Girls Allowed, says:  “Come, join us as we take a front-row seat to view God’s deliverance of his people in China!  We prayed before the blind attorney Chen Guangcheng escaped, and the Lord delivered him.  We prayed before Feng Jianmei’s case was brought to the light, and it quickly captured international attention.  We prayed for policy change, and the vast majority of Chinese provinces banned late-term forced abortion.  Our Lord Jesus clearly hears us, and he so desires for us to come before him in thanksgiving and intercession, that he might send his redemption on China.”

 

“Our God is an awesome God.  Let us ask him to give courage to China’s leaders to do what is right and just.  May he continue to part the Red Sea and release his people from the yoke of slavery!”

 

All Girls Allowed (http://www.allgirlsallowed.org) was founded by Chai Ling in 2010 with a mission to display the love of Jesus by restoring life, value and dignity to girls and mothers in China and revealing the injustice of the One-Child Policy. “In Jesus’ Name, Simply Love Her.”
