“It doesn’t matter if you’re pro-choice or pro-life. Forced abortion is not a choice.” -Reggie Littlejohn
Reggie Littlejohn is the founder and President of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers. www.womensrightswithoutfrontiers.org. A graduate of Yale Law School, she is an acclaimed international expert on China’s One Child Policy. Her organization has been called the “leading voice” in the battle to expose and oppose, forced abortion, gendercide (the sex-selective abortion of baby girls) and sexual slavery in China. Women’s Rights Without Frontiers is also saving lives in China. Their “Save a Girl” campaign finds women who are about to abort or abandon their babies because they are girls and enables them to keep their daughters by providing the family with monthly stipends for a year.
Reggie has testified six times at the United States Congress, three times at the European Parliament, twice at the British, and has presented at the Irish and Canadian Parliaments, United Nations, State Department and Vatican as well. She has met Pope Francis.
In January 2014, for her tireless efforts on behalf of the women of China, Reggie was honored as one of the “Top Ten People of 2013” by Inside the Vatican Magazine. She was also awarded the Cardinal O’Connor Pro-Life Award from Legatus, an organization for Catholic business leaders. Reggie was given the “National Pro-Life Recognition Award” at the 2013 March for Life in Washington, DC. She was also the keynote speaker of the Canadian March for Life that year. She is prominently featured in the “It’s a Girl” film, the authoritative documentary about gendercide in China and India.
Reggie has extensive reach inside China as she has appeared sixteen times on Voice of America, the official U.S. broadcast into China. She along with Rep. Chris Smith led the international effort to free blind activist Chen Guangcheng, who was under attack in China for his opposition to forced abortion. Reggie led the international effort to free 10 year-old Zhang Anni, China’s youngest prisoner of conscience. Anni and her sister Ruli arrived in San Francisco last September; and Reggie and her husband Robert have welcomed these sisters into their family.
