Serrin Foster, whose latest essay is published on National Review Online, is one couragious woman. She is the President of Feminists for Life, which some people are absolutely convinced is an oxymoron.
No, it’s not. At the least, half of all the human beings that are killed by abortion are female. In some of the world, many, many more of the abortions are for “sex selection” – meaning they’re culling the culturally less desirable girls.
And then there are the women who, like me are convinced that women should not be pushed to “choose” as the mother of “Sophies’ Choice” did: between their children (the child you’re carrying now and the children of the future) or between their children and their lives, their education or their jobs. Or between being fully women (who do get pregnant and bear children, by nature) or more like the men.
Between someone else’s definition of success and failure.
Ms. Foster writes about the pressures placed on college girls to abort – the only “choice” offered on too many campuses seems to be what kind of abortion to have.
