Time Is Running Out: Join with us and sign a petition for Chen’s release
As the situation with Chen Guangcheng continues to heat up our friends at China Aid and Women’s Rights Without Frontiers have not been idle. A video they produced shows the world what is happening to Chen Guangcheng and calls for his release in poignant visual form. We urge you to watch the video and add your name to the petition seeking Chen Guangcheng’s release.
Please listen to Reggie Littlejohn who founded Women’s Rights Without Frontier’s to fight for the rights of the unborn in China.

Join with us to see Chen Guangcheng Freed!
As you all know, we at Jubilee Campaign promote the human rights and religious liberty of ethnic and religious minorities in countries which imprison, terrorize or otherwise oppress them. You may also know that our longtime friend, China Aid, is a Christian human rights organization committed to the advancement of religious freedom and rule of law in China. You may be less familiar with Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, a broad-based, international coalition that opposes forced abortion and sexual slavery in China.
I want to make clear to you why it is so vital that Chen Guangcheng be freed and why we are all pushing so hard for the release of this one man. It is always a worthy cause to advocate for the freedom of a prisoner of conscience. But in circumstances like these the fate of specific individuals rebounds to massive effect on the issues that they champion.
It would be nearly impossible to effect any change in government policy without the strategic work of homegrown human rights advocates. These people champion the causes of the weak and oppressed from inside the system. Consequently, the government seeks to silence these valiant human rights defenders. Chen Guangcheng began and led the effort to stop forced abortions in China. If the Chinese government silences him it will deal a grievous blow to all attempts to end this butchery.
Reggie states in the video, “It has taken a blind man to see the truth behind the brutal one-child policy.” By taking up the cause of the unborn, Chen Guangcheng has linked his fate to theirs. This petition is not merely about one man, however noble he may be. This petition may help save millions of children whose mothers desperately want to hold their living babies. We urge you to sign the petition and to pray for Chen Guangcheng.
