FFL members share their stories
March 23, 2011
I caught the wave of feminism in college, but felt distant when abortion was included. The "Herstory" articles in The American Feminist assure me that my place as a pro-life feminist is neither new nor solitary.
I was always a feminist and always pro-life. I knew immediately that this is what I was supposed to do, and that everything in my life and my career had been preparing me for this. And I knew I was home.
I love that FFL sponsors programs and education so pregnant women don't have to sacrifice a child or education and dreams. With resources and support, a woman can choose both.
This week's celebration of Women's History Month is all about solidarity with others in our movement. Our shared experiences and unique stories are best told by people like you.
So take a moment out of your day to read what FFL members are saying. And then if you'd like, share your thoughts on your Facebook page during this next week, place a link to FFL's Facebook page on your own, and encourage your friends to join our email list.
FFL is a strong, passionate advocate for women and children in ways that are creative, constructive, and respectful. We are bridge builders.
Most important, please become a member during our Women's History Month campaign. If it's been a while and your membership is due, we need you to renew.
And if you become a monthly donor, your membership is now included! Anyone who chooses to donate $5 or more monthly, or $15 or more quarterly, to Feminists for Life will also become a member of FFL. This includes monthly and quarterly donations given through Electronic Fund Transfer and FFL's secure website. Monthly and quarterly donors provide essential support to our ongoing mission.
Protection of life can best be accomplished when both mother and child are cherished, supported, and served. Your approach avoids the traps of ideological extremism and puts service to real people with real needs above political agendas and divisiveness.
FFL members always walk our talk, but talking is important too. Please join our efforts to educate and advocate for pregnant women, birthparents, parents, and their children. And be sure to check out our upcoming events in Boston, Washington, Austin, Omaha, Chapel Hill, and Cedar Falls! Please come, if you are nearby, and invite your friends and family to attend.
Alongside the original feminists who fought to give women a voice, guard children with sound labor laws, secure the abolition of slavery and protect the unborn child, women today increasingly stand in solidarity with FFL to defend ALL those whose voice is not heard.
Keep the revolution alive. March forth!
Because women deserve better,
