The rise of the anti-abortion feminist

May 19, 2012

Lila Rose the pro-life advocate writes in Politico an article on the anti-abortion feminist. You may be asking, does one exist? Indeed, Rose affirms that a true feminist speaks out for the unborn and protects all life from conception to natural death:

In the ongoing debate over women’s health care, one voice has been mostly absent: that of the anti-abortion feminist.

Most cultural conservatives have correctly focused their attention on the constitutional issues at stake, in particular the threat to religious liberty posed by the Obama administration’s mandate that religious employers underwrite their employees’ abortion-inducing drugs, contraceptives and sterilization procedures.

Many liberal women, meanwhile, have eagerly embraced the role of victim, advancing the idea that women are casualties of a “war on women.” Women are now, as various cultural liberals have put it, “facing sexual McCarthyism” from “conservative cavemen” who want to return to the “Dark Ages.”

But women are not a monolith. And there is a growing group of passionate young women who are transforming what it means to be a woman. Allow me to introduce them to you. We are women who reject both the anti-male feminism of the 1960s and the “girls gone wild” mentality that’s pervasive today.

We are women for whom the idea of artificial birth control as “preventive care” is deeply insulting.

We are women who view the intentional killing of children not as a constitutional right, a matter of privacy or a necessary evil but, rather, as profoundly anti-woman and the antithesis of love.

Read the rest here. What we are witnessing is the rise of intelligent and courageous women in the 21st century, no longer content on being the victim of political and social persuasions. They are defending the lives of future generations.

Our Mother of Perpetual Help, pray for us!
