Abortion activists have been trashing pro-life feminists on Twitter this week after they learned that the Women’s March on Washington included a pro-life group among its partners.

Pro-abortion journalist Jessica Valenti, who writes for the Guardian, was one of the most vocal critics of the march and pro-lifers. Valenti claimed on Twitter that feminists cannot be pro-life and urged the march to remove the New Wave Feminists pro-life group as a partner.

Actress and pro-life advocate Patricia Heaton quickly came to pro-lifers’ defense. She called out Valenti and her fellow abortion activists for contradicting their own “pro-choice” views.

An Emmy award-winning actress on “The Middle” and formerly “Everybody Loves Raymond,” Heaton also has been tweeting her support for the March for Life in Washington, D.C. and other pro-life projects.

“Life begins at conception. Said every scientist ever. #ProScience #ProWoman #ProLife” she tweeted on Jan. 6.

Heaton was just one of many pro-life feminists who used Twitter this week to urge society to recognize that being pro-life is pro-woman. Even a few people who support legalized abortion criticized Valenti and other abortion activists for being intolerant.

However, the women’s march listen to the abortion activists and removed New Wave Feminists from its partner list. It also openly stated that it supports abortion, contradicting its past statements about welcoming all women to the event.

The Atlantic reported more about the situation:

A pro-life group based in Texas, New Wave Feminists, was granted partnership status on Friday. “Intersectional feminism is the future of feminism and of this movement,” said Bob Bland, one of the event’s co-chairs. “We must not just talk about feminism as one issue, like access to reproductive care.” (On Monday afternoon, after the publication of this article, the Women’s March organizers removed the New Wave Feminists from their website and list of partners. “The Women’s March’s platform is pro-choice and that has been our stance from day one,” the organizers said in a statement. “The anti-choice organization in question is not a partner of the Women’s March on Washington. We apologize for this error.”)

The women’s march also tweeted a statement affirming that it supports abortion:

New Wave Feminists announced on Facebook that it will not be silenced. Its members still plan to attend the women’s march to be a voice for all women, including the unborn.
