Reggie Littlejohn, acclaimed expert on China's One Child Policy and founder of Women's Rights Without Frontiers, will give a speech at a Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors event at the Luxe Hotel Sunset on June 18 to discuss the massive genocide being perpetrated by the Chinese Communists for the last thirty years. Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors, founded in 2007 by Doris Wise Montrose, has been hosting a stellar lineup of speakers at events at the upscale Luxe Hotel Sunset, located in the heart of Los Angeles, over the last few years. CJHS's reach has become global as the issues involved become more contentious and pressing. Local, national and international problems with historical and contemporary implications are all on the table.
Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors sees no difference in principle between the deliberate and systematic extermination of Jews because they are Jews, and the deliberate and systematic extermination of girls because they are girls. Nor do we see any difference between silence in the face of one evil and silence in the face of another evil.
"We cannot in good conscience stand by while any group of human beings is devalued or dehumanized to the point where mass extermination of that group is not challenged, and so becomes tolerable, and then even conventional. If we object to the extermination of Jews simply because they are Jews, but not to that of girls simply because they are girls, then we do not in fact object to genocide at all, only to the mistreatment of ourselves, without any regard for the value of other lives, regardless of their innocence," said Doris Wise Montrose, founder of CJHSLA.
China instituted a "One Child Policy" in 1978 "to alleviate social economic and environmental problems.
It was initially meant to apply only to births in China in 1979 but is still in effect three decades later, with virtually no voices raised against the forced abortions and female infanticide that have prevented up to hundreds of millions of girls from being born. In fact, the practice of gender-selective abortion has spread to the United States, and though some in Congress have tried to make the practice illegal in this country, there is not sufficient support to pass such a bill into law.
The world has witnessed such bigoted disregard before, and some among us have seen it firsthand, from the other side of the fence. We know that when evil is met with silence, there is nothing to stop it becoming unremarkable, even automatic. And we should know - by now - that if we raise no objection and allow evil to continue unrestrained, history should—and will—judge us accordingly.
Ms. Littlejohn spearheaded an international campaign to free blind Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng, who was jailed and tortured for exposing the truth about the One Child Policy. Mr. Chen arrived in the United States on May 19. She recently received the "Spirit of Tiananmen" Award for her tireless efforts on behalf of Mr. Chen. She has addressed universities, law schools, the White House, Congress, the European Parliament, and the Vatican about One Child Policy issues. She is a frequent guest on radio and television, and has been featured in documentaries and many articles and interviews about her work.
