Abortion: We'll Never Know What the World Has Lost

"Family planning police came daily to pressure Anni's mother to abort her."

When we save just one life from abortion, we're saving the future. I'll explain with a beautiful story.

A thirteen-year-old girl named Anni is seated at the piano on the stage at Carnegie Hall. She is wearing a neat white dress, and she's playing brilliantly. The crowd applauds enthusiastically.

That was one month ago. Three years ago, it was a different story. Then, Anni was huddled in a jail cell in China. She was kept there overnight without food, water, or even access to a toilet. The Chinese government had locked her up as retaliation for her father's activities protesting China's repressive policies.

The story of how Anni got from there to Carnegie Hall is a miracle — one that teaches us how much God values every human life.
Anni's father, Zhang Lin, is a nuclear physicist who was himself sent to prison. To get his daughter out of China, he contacted my friend Reggie Littlejohn, founder of Women's Rights Without Frontiers. Reggie, along with U.S. Representative Chris Smith and others, succeeded in bringing Anni and her sister to the U.S. Praise God. Reggie and her husband took the girls in, to raise as their own daughters.

But this is far from the whole story. You see, if the Chinese government had had its way, Anni would never have been born. 
Anni was a second child at a time when China's One Child policy was in brutal effect. Millions of Chinese women were forced to undergo abortions for the "crime" of expecting a second child.
