ALEXANDRIA, Virginia, Oct. 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- Feminists for Life is launching a national web campaign aimed at bringing peace to America’s painful, decades-long abortion conflict.
“Since 1973, it's been the same thing. One side of the hotly contested abortion wars yells, ‘What about the woman?’ Instead of yelling back, ‘What about the baby?’ Feminists for Life answers the question,” says FFL President Serrin Foster. “It’s hard to talk when there’s all that distance.”
To bridge the gap between both sides of the abortion debate, Feminists for Life is offering a new e-course beginning October 5, free to all who sign up, and advertising it via a national web advertising campaign.
Pro-Woman Answers to Pro-Choice Questions(TM) answers such common questions—and real quandaries—as “What about in the case of rape?”, “What about poor women who are without resources?”, and “Is it fair to ask a girl to give up her education to have a baby she doesn’t want?”
Pro-Woman Answers to Pro-Choice Questions(TM) is the first on-line education effort of its kind.
For years, Feminists for Life has been redirecting the debate by working with those on both sides to address the root causes that drive women to abortion, and by answering the critical questions in the most contentious places—from Capitol Hill to college campuses.
“We have an independent streak. When Planned Parenthood’s research arm, the Guttmacher Institute, revealed the long list of reasons that were cited by women who had abortions—primarily lack of resources and support—we said this is our task list. Abortion is a reflection that we haven’t met the needs of women, and women deserve better,” says Foster, who will be answering the questions/teaching the e-course each week.
Foster says that FFL’s web campaign is aimed at reaching “everyday people whose lives have been touched by the topic you can’t bring up in polite conversation as well as those who influence lives every day through their work—such as policymakers, educators, health professionals, and employers. Women—including those who have had abortions—as well as men are welcome at this feminist table.”
The first question Foster will answer on Thursday is: "Can you really be a feminist and pro-life?"
