Pro-Life Feminism

The feminist movement has long prided itself on diversity, and differing views are encouraged on all kinds of issues. Yet abortion appears to be an exception: Angela Kennedy, former chair of the Labour Life Group, informed me that mainstream feminist publishers refused to publish an anthology of writings by ‘pro-life’ feminists. ‘Pro-choice’ supporters have written of ‘pro-life’ feminism in a critical manner, but have not allowed these women to speak for themselves. If the voices of all women count, should we not be more tolerant of nonconformity? As Mary McAleese has noted, the myth that to be a feminist is to be ‘pro-choice’ has forced many women to resign from the name of feminism.
