Real Feminists Oppose Killing Babies in Abortions

March was Women’s History Month. The media has featured articles about many impressive women and their contributions to American history. However, it appears one thing is required before a woman can be honored. She must also be a supporter of so-called reproductive rights—code for abortion.

Today, celebrities brag about their abortions in the name of feminism. Actress Jameela Jamil claims her abortion was the “best decision” she ever made. Comedian Chelsea Handler says she is grateful for the two abortions she had at 16. Singer and songwriter Stevie Nicks credits the success of her band, Fleetwood Mac, to her 1979 abortion. These women are hailed by the media as feminist heroes for their bravery and pro-choice positions.

These modern-day feminists would have the pioneers of American feminism rolling over in their graves. Contrary to what some consider to be the politically correct ideology of today, the original feminist leaders defended the unborn.

Susan B. Anthony, a leader of the women’s suffrage movement, listed abortion among the negative consequences of “evils” perpetrated by men — citing it alongside murder and infanticide. Many other early feminist leaders opposed abortion, including Dr. Charlotte Lozier. She famously said, “… a person who asks a physician to commit the crime of antenatal infanticide can be no more considered his patient than one who asks him to poison his wife.”

Several unsung female leaders of today would make the suffragists proud for being champions of life: Dr. Mildred F. Jefferson, Anne O’Connor, and female leaders in pregnancy centers worldwide.
