Fifty years ago, Pat Goltz and the late Cathy Callaghan announced to the world the formation of a pro-woman, pro-life organization: Feminists for Life. Although they did not initially realize that they were not the first pro-life feminists — the suffragists beat them to it by more than a century! — the birth of FFL was a key turning point in the women’s movement and launched a half-century of education and advocacy for the most vulnerable. To mark FFL’s 50th Birthday, we are proud to announce the latest issue of The American Feminist: “Feminists for Life at Fifty.”

Beyond the Schism: Reclaiming Feminism Cover

In this historic issue, FFL President Serrin Foster asks Sue Ellen Browder, author of Subverted – How I Helped the Sexual Revolution Hijack the Women’s Movement, to reveal the details of that very moment that split feminists for abortion from feminists for life — and answers the key question: was Alice Paul there? Also included are the perspectives of men in the wake of the second wave of feminism and the most ridiculous questions we have received for being both feminist and pro-life.

On January 22, 1973, the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions eliminated the legal protection from abortion for women, and the responsibility of children disproportionately shifted to women. In this insightful issue of The American Feminist, we take the next step to systematically look at poverty and model resources, as well as solutions, and come closer to achieving the unrealized vision of our first wave feminists, who sought to address the root causes of abortion. FFL examines the primary reasons reported by women today: the lack of support on campus and in the workplace and lack of paternal support — and outlines urgently needed solutions. Click to order!

NEWLY UPDATED: Pro-Woman Answers to Pro-Choice Questions: Feminists for Life is dedicated to bringing peace to America’s painful, decades-long abortion conflict. “Since 1973, it’s been the same thing. One side of the hotly contested abortion wars yells, ‘What about the woman?’ Instead of yelling back, ‘What about the baby?’ Feminists for Life answers the question,” says FFL President Serrin Foster. “It’s hard to talk when there’s all that distance.”

“Pro-Woman Answers to Pro-Choice QuestionsTM” is included in all our gift for a $50 donation. Donate today!

2012: Metamorphosis: “Metamorphosis”, a 36-page issue of The American Feminist, gives insight into why people become pro-life feminists — after being one or neither. FFL President Serrin Foster explains why “individual evolutions can start peaceful revolutions” and provides practical tools to help welcome more people to our peaceful, holistic, solution-oriented movement. Serrin also reveals the stunning truth you need to know and share about attorney Sarah “Weddington’s Betrayal of Women” when she argued in support of Roe v. Wade before the Supreme Court. Stories from a dozen women will inform you about what triggered their conversions — including FFL’s own Vice President Sally Winn and Editor 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.
