Feminists for Life

While today we mourn more than 62 million unborn little ones whose lives were terminated by various forms of abortion, we also remember women and teens who died from abortions.

"I remember Holly Paterson, who died on my birthday, Constitution Day," reflects FFL President Serrin M. Foster. "While I celebrated with the woman who gave me life, Holly was painfully dying from sepsis after her much older boyfriend took her to Planned Parenthood for RU-486. Her distraught father later called the FFL office explaining that he didn't know if he was pro-life or pro-choice, but he wanted to know why his 18-year-old daughter, who had just graduated from high school, was dead."

So many lives have been taken, including Dawn Ravenell, the 13-year-old girl who never came home after she had an abortion without her parents' knowledge. We weep for Cree Erwin, who died on her son's first birthday after receiving an abortion at the Planned Parenthood in Kalamazoo, Michigan. And we mourn with the husband of Karnamaya Mongar, a poor immigrant who died as a result of her abortion at the hands of the convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell. Where is the outrage from women's advocates?

"Today, we remember all of them, and on the solemn 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, recommit ourselves to work peacefully and lovingly toward eliminating the root causes that drive women and teens to abortion," Foster concluded.
