Women's March on Washington Boots Pro-Life Group After Angry Feminists Complain

Women's March on Washington Boots Pro-Life Group After Angry Feminists Complain

The statement also said that "the anti-choice organization in question is not a partner of the Women's March on Washington". Hawkins told The Atlantic that the students will march to protest the influence of the abortion industry in the women's movement.

Late last week, though, a Texas pro-life group - New Wave Feminists - joined the women's march as a sponsor, representing just some of the many pro-life women across the country who oppose Trump's election for other reasons.

'New Wave Feminists' is a non-profit organization that describes itself as "Badass".

There is a massive women's march on Washington planned for this Saturday, the day after the inauguration, but there's already some controversy concerning a pro-life group that was listed as a partner on the march website.

But that reasoning isn't enough for Valenti, who seems to suggest that women aren't authentic women at all unless they support "justice" - which, in her view, means a woman's legal and accessible right to the murder of her own child.

When the Women's March became an idea, organizers reached out for sponsors.

Neither Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu nor Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas attended the conference.

Even aside from the absurdity of these arguments, such unconscionable attacks on pro-life women denigrate a large share of the nation's female population: Recent data from the Pew Research Center shows that 40 percent of USA women believe abortion should be illegal in all or most cases.

Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa, founder of New Wave Feminist, said the group will still participate in the march. She plans on carrying signs that say "War is not pro-life", and "Torture is not pro-life" - along with anti-abortion messages.

Following the publication of the Atlantic's article, there was a backlash against the Women's March, with many saying that feminism and anti-choice politics are incompatible.

So much for supporting all women. SFLA plans to attend Saturday's March with signs that read "Abortion Betrays Women" and will march at the upcoming annual March for Life on January 27.

It would be hard to imagine any women's march, that was truly committed to human rights and feminist principles, failing to address the tragic violence of abortion and its impact on women in particular and our culture in general. Prolife. Feminists." "Sometime before we were born our womanhood was traded for a handful of birth control pills, the "privilege" to degrade ourselves in playboy, and the "right' to abort our children", the group's description reads. Bob Bland, one of the event's co-chairs said, "Intersectional feminism is the future of feminism and of this movement".
