“Making the Women’s March a hostile place for pro-life women shows that the purpose of this march isn’t about supporting women,” said Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “This isn’t a ‘women’s’ march, it’s an abortion march at which radical feminists sell out women by throwing away all issues except ending preborn life. The message that women must choose between career and family is modern misogyny that undercuts all of us.”
“Telling pro-life women that they aren’t welcome at the Women’s March excludes about half of us from a conversation on what women need to thrive. We will march for all women — born and preborn — invited or not, because women deserve support in their careers and in their relationships. We don’t have to pick just one,” Hawkins added.

Additionally, SFLA will hold counter-demonstrations in cities where SFLA has launched the new Campaign for Abortion Free Cities. For a full list of Women’s March counter-demonstrations, visit studentsforlife.org/womensmarch. Students from among SFLA’s 1,250 established student groups will join the demonstrations.
“Although SFLA has been unwelcome at previous Women’s Marches, we have continued to show up year after year to be a voice for the preborn and women targeted by the abortion industry. SFLA has experienced harassment and hostility from pro-abortion advocates at these events,” Hawkins concluded.
