The Voice of a Pro-Life Feminist

By Sarah A

I am a pro-life feminist.

Some feminists think that I shouldn't exist, or at least shouldn't call myself a feminist.

To not be constantly excluded, I have hidden my religious beliefs from fellow feminists.

Many pro-choice feminists argue that women should be able to choose. I don't oppose this. Unlike other pro-life people, I do not wish that the state would ban abortion. However, it doesn't mean I cannot have a religious conscience, saying that abortion is wrong. I don't judge others, but for me personally, abortion is wrong.

I wouldn't ever choose abortion myself, and that's a valid choice. Many other women are in the same boat, and I wish feminism would be more inclusive of us.
