One day I’m going to figure out how I get on some of the email lists I’m on, but today is not that day. Today is snort at the faux feminists who go by the name of Feminists for Life.
They appear to be upset that NARAL has referred to their deceptive group as being anti-choice.
The truth really does hurt apparently because that’s exactly what Feminists for Life(FFL) is – anti-choice. They do not support a woman’s choice to terminate a pregnancy for any reason.
From the Q&A section of their site concerning abortions due to the welfare of the woman:
…Situations in which the pregnancy threatens the life of the mother are extremely rare. Late-term abortions are never medically necessary. Emergency C-sections are often the medically appropriate response to save both mother and child. !
…, there are issues related to mental health. While pregnancy can be a stressful experience and sometimes bring on or exacerbate depression, psychological stress should not be “treated” by abortion. Psychiatrists and psychologists need to treat mental health issues directly.
FFL also opposes women seeking abortions due to rape and incest. In the same section under “what if she just doesn’t want it” Serrin Foster puts FFL position on abortion rather bluntly:
We oppose abortion in all cases because violence is a violation of basic feminist principles.
You simply cannot be “pro-choice” when it comes to reproductive issues and simultaneously oppose the choice to terminate a pregnancy. End of discussion.
