Real Feminism on Abortion

When I first began studying history in order to determine that (let's call it "fundamentalist Christianity") wasn't just a reactionary belief system started in the 1900s but that there has been a silver thread running through history where people have always been believing the orthodox truth, I was fascinated to discover things I'd never known before.

Just today, I learned something new. The following is adapted from a recent article from Creation Ministries International:

Modern Feminism (called 'second or third wave') promotes abortion as the pinnacle of women's rights and women's equality. This feminism has been in play since the '60s and '80s, respectively. But what about the original feminism? The feminism of the mid-1800s that championed women's suffrage (right to vote) and sought to criminalize domestic violence, among other things that very obviously were intended to protect women?

1. The Revolution, the newsletter of Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906), described abortion as ‘child murder’, ‘infanticide’ and ‘foeticide’.

2. "Every woman knows that if she were free, she would never bear an unwished-for child, nor think of murdering one before its birth." ~ Victoria Woodhull (1838–1927), the first female US presidential candidate

3. Abortion is a ‘disgusting and degrading crime,' and

4. "When you consider that women have been treated as property, it is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit." ~ Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902), who organized the first women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls, NY (1848)

5. The mother of the feminist movement, Mary Wollstonecraft (1759–1797) had earlier written, A Vindication of the Rights of Women, where she condemned those who would ‘either destroy the embryo in the womb, or cast it off when born.

Early feminists were against abortion. Modern "feminism" isn't feminism. It's violence against women and degrading to both women and men.

If that rubs you the wrong way, try your hand at reading the article and see if you still disagree:

It makes me proud (and not of myself, but of the Truth, mind you) to know that what I believe is not only right, but it has been right and recognized as being right for all of recorded history, such that this truth has not only been with us all along, but it has been the pillar on which all of our civilization stands. Those who would deny the Truth (I speak of God) would seek to undermine our society and destroy the whole world if they could--willingly or unwillingly, knowingly or unknowingly.

Choose a side. Do it wisely.
