Can You Be Feminist And Pro-Life? [Candy Dish]


Jezebel says nope. They do have a point but I am still interested in hearing what you all have to say. As the article points out, of course as a woman you have the choice to never ever get an abortion or to even personally think it’s morally wrong. Nevertheless as a feminist you would have to support an inclusive decision, one that gives all women the right to choose to have or not to have one.

“Despite the mission statements of pro-life, conservative political action groups like Feminists for Life and the Susan B. Anthony List and Sarah Palin’s repeated use of the F-word, there is actually no such thing as a “pro-life feminist.” Sure, you can be a feminist and make a personal decision to never get an abortion. But who the f*** are you to actively work at taking away other women’s right to make their own personal decisions about their uteruses?”
