· “My moral code does not allow for the relative value of human beings,” asserts Ellen Reich in FFL’s most recent issue of The American Feminist, “Metamorphosis.” Raised in a family that supported abortion, Ellen’s journey of conversion to pro-life (and still a feminist) is powerful and unique.
· Jewels Green, who was pressured into an abortion as a teen and subsequently worked in an abortion clinic for years before her “A-ha” moment made her realize that “children were now commodities to be created, bought, sold, or discarded at will –and I could no longer call myself pro-choice.” Read and share her powerful evolution to a Feminist for Life.
· Science “smacked” fence-sitter Marybeth Hagen into certainty as she saw her own child’s image on a sonogram. “The fragile life that I saw vial ultrasound astounded me and forever changed my views about abortion.” Maternal loss taught her more. Read and share Marybeth’s personal journey and welcome others to our movement!
· Kristen Hatten says “you can’t unlearn what you’ve learned. Information made me pro-life.” Read, like and share the story of this pro-life “New Wave Feminist” as revealed in FFL’s latest issue, “Metamorphosis.”
· Granddaughter of a suffragist, Maria Gallagher became a convert to pro-life feminism by asking herself “if I truly believed in the dignity of women, how could I deny the dignity of the woman in the womb? Did not that female child have just as much of a right to live as me? If I were that girl, wouldn’t I want adult women to fight for my rights?” Read and share her story.
· Read and share Aimee Murphy’s “Metamorphosis” to pro-life feminism: “The threat of violence helped me to recognize the value of every human life, and the importance of those voices that spoke out for the dignity of both woman and child.”
· Beatrice Fedor’s own experience made her a pro-life feminist: “I’ve heard my pro-choice sisters respond many times when recalling an abortion memory. ‘You don’t want to go there.’” Read, like and share her “Metamorphosis.”
· When birthmother Tricia Green became pregnant the second time, she had an abortion. Prompted by grief, she began her research and determined that “abortion is harmful for women and for babies.” Now she refuses to choose between women and children. Read, share and like Tricia’s story to show your support women who reconsider abortion.
· Questioning abortion led Sharon Long—a liberal–to become a “reluctant pro-lifer” and then an enthusiastic Feminist for Life. “Ultimately the root cause of abortion is alienation, which sociologists define as powerlessness.” Read, like and share Sharon’s conversion story.
· Carla Stream didn’t want an abortion, but she believed the lie we’ve all heard, “It’s just a bunch of cells.” The next time she was pregnant she welcomed it. But sadly, she miscarried and saw the baby with her own eyes, “This WASN’T ‘a bunch of cells’!” Encourage Carla and show you welcome women like her by liking, sharing her story of abortion recovery. As Carla explains, “There is hope. There is healing. You can find your joy again.”
