SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 10, 2012 /Christian Newswire
/ -- In honor of International Human Rights Day, Women's Rights Without Frontiers has joined other human rights organizations, including The Jubilee Campaign and the Justice Foundation, in an open letter
to new Chinese President Xi Jinping, demanding the end of forced abortion and sterilization in China.
WRWF President Reggie Littlejohn said, "Forced abortion and the insidious infrastructure of coercion necessary to enforce China's One Child Policy do not just affect women. They affect everyone in China. The coercive enforcement of China's One Child Policy is the biggest human rights violation on earth today -- a bloody stranglehold on 1.3 billion people. It must end now. We call upon President Xi Jinping to give hope to the suffering people of China by ending these barbaric practices as his first and most lasting legacy."
