Happy Birthday, Susan B. Anthony! Your feminist pro-life legacy lives on...

Here is a letter I received from Feminists for Life. I thought it would be nice to share it with you:

One hundred and eighty-seven years ago today, Susan Brownell Anthony was born in Adams, Massachusetts. Celebrate her life with us.

Here are some things to read, some things to do, some things to buy, some things to post, some things to dream—something for everyone to do to honor the great suffrage organizer who left us with so many great gifts to love!

Do what is meaningful to you—but for Susie's sake—and those we serve: Do something!

- Read all about it! Susan B. Anthony: Pro-Life Feminist? In the latest issue of The American Feminist,® FFL staffer Cat Clark sets the record straight about Susan B. Anthony's opposition to abortion.

In Susan B. Anthony's publication The Revolution, was written:

"Guilty? Yes. No matter what the motive; love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; But oh,
thrice guilty is he who drove her to the desperation which impelled her to the crime!"
Abortion was referred to as "child murder."
- The Revolution, 4(1):4 July 8, 1869

"We want prevention, not merely punishment. We must reach the root of the evil...It is practiced by those whose inmost souls revolt from the dreadful deed."
- The Revolution, 4(1):4 July 8, 1869

"All the articles on this subject that I have read have been from men. They denounce women as alone guilty, and never include man in any plans for the remedy."
- The Revolution, 4(1):4 July 8, 1869


Let's all remember that the ORIGINAL feminists denounced abortion as a tool used to oppress women, NOT to free them. Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women.

"Our children change us... whether they live or not."

- Lois McMaster Bujold, "Barrayar", 1991
