Feminist Claims All Women Must Support Abortion

The problem with pro-abortion feminists? They refuse to allow anyone else the pleasure of making up his or her own mind about abortion. To them, you can’t be a real feminist, let alone a real woman, unless you support abortion in all its forms. Yet another pro-abort is shouting this for the world to hear: women, you aren’t allowed to be pro-life.

Feminists didn’t speak out against our country’s Status of Women Minister because she didn’t comply with some kind of groupthink. Feminists disagree on a lot of things, big and small. We have disagreements on pornography, sex work, body hair, the SFU Men’s Centre, SlutWalk, whether Pinterest is killing the movement, whether Lady Gaga is a role model, even whether knitting is reclaiming feminist heritage or setting us back.

Where feminists know we can’t afford to disagree is the fundamental feminist issue of the right to choose to have an abortion.

Apparently, women are not allowed to think for themselves. This pro-abortion blogger would likely be horrified, then, to learn that the majority of women are pro-life.

It doesn’t make any of them traitors to their gender or anti-feminists. In fact, the woman who is willing to fight for the lives of her children is more of a woman than one who is not.

The pro-abortion movement was never about choice. They don’t want women to have the choice to make up their own minds about abortion. This is why the abortion industry so often lies about the scientific facts of pregnancy and abortion. It’s why they argue against pre-abortion ultrasounds. They don’t want to risk women knowing too much about abortion, and they don’t want women having the freedom to be pro-life. There’s no choice in the “pro-choice” movement. Women are told what they are and aren’t allowed to believe in – and they aren’t allowed to believe in protecting life.

Which side sounds more feminist to you?
