Some Feminists are becoming Pro-Life like the First Feminists

Week in Review

During the 2012 election George Stephanopoulos asked Mitt Romney a question out of left field about birth control.  The next thing we knew we had another war on our hands.  A war on women.  Where the Left reduced women down to little more than their vaginas.  For the only important issues to women in 2012 (according to the Left) were birth control and abortion.  And nothing else.  The deficit?  The debt?  The high unemployment rate?  Benghazi?  These issues just weren’t for women.  Because they weren’t vagina-centric.  And, therefore, not women’s issues.  Those things were best left to the men.  At least according to the Left.

Those on the Right believe there is more to a woman than her vagina.  And that the deficit, the debt, the high unemployment rate and Benghazi are not things only men can understand.  Or that abortion is the only thing that empowers women.  Just like those first feminists (see Viewpoint: Pro-Life and Feminism Aren’t Mutually Exclusive by Emily Buchanan posted 1/3/2013 on Time).

From its early beginnings, feminism was a young women’s movement. Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Alice Paul, Charlotte Lozier and so many others began their suffragist work in their 20s. These women — the original feminists — understood that the rights of women cannot be built on the broken backs of unborn children. Anthony called abortion “child murder.” Paul, author of the original 1923 Equal Rights Amendment, said that “abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women.”

So the pro-life movement hasn’t changed the meaning of feminism, as has been suggested. It was the neo-feminists of the 1960s and ’70s who asked women to prize abortion as the pathway to equality…

Pro-life feminism has captivated a new generation of young women who reject the illusion that to be pro-woman is to be pro-choice. Gallup polling showed that among 18-to-29-year-olds, there was a 5% increase in those labeling themselves “pro-life” between 2007–08 and 2009–10.

Who would have known?  The first feminists were pro-life.  You wouldn’t have known that by listening to today’s feminists.  And it appears that some young feminists are reconnecting with Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Alice Paul and Charlotte Lozier.  And rejecting the notion introduced by the feminists of the Sixties and the Seventies that to empower women you have to become sexual objects that please men.  Which unlimited birth control and access to abortion did.  Giving some men what they always wanted.  Casual sex with as many different women as possible.  Without having to marry anyone.  And having to spend the rest of their life with that one same woman.  No.  Birth control and abortion freed men from that dull and boring life.  Thanks to the Sixties they could swing.

Which of course has angered women as they can’t find a man interested in something more than a one night stand.  Growing ever more frustrated as their biological clocks tick away.  For contrary to the feminists of the Sixties and Seventies women still want to get married and raise a family.  Which is more difficult these days as these neo-feminists have ruined men.  By making women nothing more than vaginas.
