That’s not true. I’m a feminist, and I’m pro-life. Feminism is about women having the same basic rights as men: the rights to life, liberty, and property, the right to vote, go to school, and enter any profession we so choose and be paid the same amount as men for the same amount of work.
I would argue that those so-called “pro-choice” groups are actually masculist. The original feminists wrote the original anti-abortion laws. NARAL was started by two men, who duped NOW into thinking that more women died in childbirth and back-alley abortions than any other cause. They kicked Betty Friedan out of the group, and ran with the “right to abortion” chant.
Because of abortion, we women have our rights taken from us. Men are now able to tell us that they will leave us or hurt us if we don’t get an abortion. It allows others to take advantage of us. It allows people to tell us that they will disown us, and won’t help us, treat us, let us into a shelter, etc. if we don’t have an abortion. Abortion is a sign that society has failed women, and we deserve better than abortion.
So please don’t lump us true feminists in with those posers.
Other than that, sign the petition to support the Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad, if you haven’t already:
It will help a lot of women know that they’re not alone in their situation where everyone wants them to abort. It will let them know that there are people out there who have gone through the same thing, and are there to help them. No one should be forced into abortion, and those so-called “pro-choicers” aren’t advocating choice at all by attacking this commercial. It’s time people knew the voices of the many of us who are pro-life! Let them know that we will stand for life!
