Being Pro-Woman Isn't Just a Tactic
Feminists for Life is increasingly recognized by the press for leading the effort to redirect energy from the debate over abortion to woman-centered solutions. You may have seen "Abortion Foes See Validation for New Tactic" in the New York Times in May, for example:
The anti-abortion movement's focus on women has been building for a decade or more. It is embodied in much of the imagery and advertising of the anti-abortion movement in recent years, especially the "Women Deserve Better Than Abortion" campaign by Feminists for Life, the group that counts Jane Sullivan Roberts, the wife of the chief justice, among its most prominent supporters.
Some in the media have accused the pro-life movement of being pro-woman merely as a strategy or tactic. That's not Feminists for Life.
FFL isnít just helping the woman in order to help the baby. We are here to help women. And babies. And fathers. Our approach is holistic.
Women deserve betterģ isnít just a slogan, mere rhetoric, or a PR tactic. It isnít window dressing for the pro-life movement. It is who we are and what we do.
Just last week, the Los Angeles Times reported in "Democrats Shift Approach on Abortion" on several different pieces of legislation before Congress. Among them was the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Pregnant and Parenting Student Services Act, a bill with bipartisan support in both the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate.
Regarding the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Act and other woman-centered solutions that FFL has uniquely worked for, the Los Angeles Times quoted me:
"It's not as exciting as arguing," said antiabortion activist Serrin Foster, president of Feminists for Life. "But it's the best possible thing for women."
Feminists for Life is leading real changes, challenging the status quo. With your help, we can continue to advocate and create solutions for women, for parents, and for their children. Please support FFL now. Thank you.E-mail this page to a friend
