Chinese Officials Rescue 89 Kidnapped Infants

 

International media rejoiced together today at the rescue of 89 infants kidnapped in China.  But what should our response be to this news?

 

China Daily reported that the infants, ages 10 days to 4 months, were rescued by police and are now in the care of institutions.  The babies were to be sold on China’s ever-increasing ‘black market’ of stolen children. 

 

All Girls Allowed, a non-profit organization devoted to restoring life, value and dignity to girls and mothers in China, applauds this successful operation completed by Chinese officials.  The special task force set in place in February is already seeing success as a result of all their hard work.

 

Reuters explains: “Women are sold to men in remote areas who are unable to find brides due to the sex imbalance resulting from China's one-child policy which has encouraged sex-selective abortions.”

 

“Whenever children are rescued from slavery and abuse, we rejoice,” says Brian Lee, Executive Director at All Girls Allowed.  “But our response always involves more than gladness—we must remember that the cause of this trafficking problem is still in place, and the problem worsens daily.  There are 550 children waiting to be trafficked tomorrow, 550 the next day, and 550 the next...Until the One-Child Policy ends, children will continue to be purchased on the black market.”

 

Lee continues, “The policy was supposed to be in place for 30 years, and this September marks the 31st anniversary.  As we witness this increase in prenatal sex selection, toddler brides trafficked, girls abandoned and female infants eliminated, we pray for a swift end to this policy, as China originally purposed.”

 

All Girls Allowed continues to support a network of anti-trafficking volunteers in China, with the goal of not only rescuing children, but reuniting them with their families.  In addition, the organization offers scholarships to girls abandoned as a result of the One-Child Policy, and gives support to mothers who keep their girls in areas most impacted by gendercide.
