If you believe that conservatives and shrinking violets pilot the pro-life movement, think again. Feminists For Life is a nonpartisan organization of articulate, strong women (and men) who are taking a stand for life - women's lives and children's lives. Also notable is the fact that they are against abortion-clinic violence and coercion.
As a public face for the organization, Feminists For Life has named talented actress and two-time Emmy winner, Patricia Heaton (Everybody Loves Raymond) as its Honorary Chair. They are also currently running a college outreach and the Women Deserve Better campaign, aimed at the college demographic.
Their websitewebsite highlights a solid anti-violence stance and offers resources such as a free email newsletter, access to abortion debates and frequently asked questions, and pregnancy information.
In my opinion, they're a great organization to bring positive pro-life information to young women everywhere. In this modern age, we don't have to choose between our children and our "success." By observing a pro-choice philosophy, society has forced women to, in essence, divide and deny themselves by abandoning and killing their children. Women definitely do deserve better.
