Feminists for Life Provides Pro-Woman Answers to
Pro-Choice Qustions

June 17, 2003

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — The spring edition of The American Feminist, "Pro Woman Answers to Pro Choice Questions," serves as an invaluable tool in helping to answer pro-choice questions from a pro-woman, pro-life perspective.

Serrin M. Foster, President of Feminists for Life, has been
fielding these hard questions for over nine years. Foster
explains why she decided to write this guide: "It is so easy to
get caught up in unproductive arguments that pit women against

"Pro Woman Answers to Pro Choice Questions" addresses questions ranging from "hard cases" such as rape and incest, to "How can you call yourself a feminist?" The key to answering pro-choice people, often in hostile environments, says Foster, is to
"acknowledge their concerns while offering unwavering hope that
we can work together for better outcomes for women and children."

Planned Parenthood commemorated the 30th year of legalized
abortion with a contest called "Every Choice Has a Story." Foster
agrees, "Every choice does have a story. Thirty years after Roe,
we mourn our missing children alongside women who feel betrayed.
Increasingly, the hard questions are being redirected at abortion
advocates whose unfulfilled promises have left us with 40 million
missing and 25 million women suffering in silence."

Feminists for Life continues the tradition of Susan B. Anthony
and the other feminist foremothers who opposed abortion and
sought to address the root causes of the problem. FFL is
dedicated to systematically eliminating the reasons that women
are driven to abortion, through woman-centered solutions.
