Women Aren’t As Gullible As The Left Wishes. The March for Life Proves It
A powerful movement is grounded not on the self, but on others. Not on hatred of a president, but on love for womankind and compassion for the life they carry inside them.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


A 21-year-old girl just found out she’s pregnant.

She knows she can’t raise a child on her own, and her friends agree, urging her to come up with a rape story so she can get an exception for abortion. Unfortunately for her, police don’t have enough evidence of rape, so she carries the child to term. She’s referred to a couple attorneys looking for pregnant women seeking abortions, and her name gets attached to a case challenging Texas abortion law, during which time she gives birth and puts the child up for adoption. It takes three years of trials, but her case finally makes it to the Supreme Court. The year is 1973, and the case:   Roe v. Wade .

Fast forward to 1998. “Jane Roe,” whose real name is Norma McCorvey, has undergone a profound transformation, ideologically and spiritually. After years of pro-abortion activism culminating in a 7-2 abortion “victory” in a landmark Supreme Court case and then a biography, Roe converts to Christianity, abandoning her old ideas.

“I’m 100 percent pro-life,” she told the Associated Press. “I don’t believe in abortion even in an extreme situation. If the woman is impregnated by a rapist, it’s still a child. You’re not to act as your own God.”

Jane Roe wasn’t the only woman to see through the “pro-choice” lies. Add millions more people to that list — several hundred thousand of which gathered on the National Mall over the weekend to celebrate all human beings, including women, at the 47th annual March for Life.

The March for Life comes on the heels of another annual march in our nation’s capital, one marketed by the left to women. Particularly, empowered women. The Women’s March, however, is dwindling. Compared to the hundreds of thousands of reported attendees in 2017,   this year , organizers   expected only 10,000 . Why?

The Women’s March Isn’t About Women


I approached the Starbucks counter for my second cup of coffee when I ran into a group of half a dozen or so high school girls the day before the March for Life. Their innocent chatter and pleasant demeanor gave me the impression they were in town for the pro-life demonstration, but the “March for Life” drawstring bag slung over one girl’s shoulder confirmed my hunch. They told me they had caravanned in a group of 13 busses all the way from the Diocese of Wichita in Kansas. I asked if they had also attended the Women’s March, and when they said they hadn’t, I asked why not.

“I think the Women’s March is important,” a young woman named Lainie told me. “But the March for Life is … more important because it’s about a loss of life. I would rather speak for those who can’t.”

“We’re not even just marching for the babies. We’re marching for the women,” another student, Madeline, chimed in. “Because [abortion is] something no women should have to go through because that’s just an awful thing for women.”

Are women’s rights compatible with being pro-life? I asked. Can people be pro-women and against abortion?

“People see a conflict with women’s rights and pro-life,” Lainie said. “But those two don’t inherently contradict each other.”

They think we don’t care about women, Madeline added, sounding a little defeated from the unrelenting and untrue assumption about pro-lifers. “Obviously,   we’re   young women,” she said.

Indeed they are. But to today’s left, that doesn’t matter, for the Women’s March isn’t really about women at all.   According to NPR,   the 2020 Women’s March highlighted three primary issues — climate change, immigration, and reproductive rights — two of which aren’t unique to women at all, and one which is a manufactured entitlement that ultimately harms women. As my colleague Erielle Davidson   highlighted , the only true unifying doctrine of the Women’s March is a seething hatred for President Donald Trump and consequently an interminable desire to undo the 2016 election.

Where does this leave the millions of women who don’t vote with their ovaries? Who care about life inside the womb? Who don’t despise the president? Simple. There’s no place for them on the left.

The Left Doesn’t Care About Women or Choice


The party of pro-choice wants women to believe they don’t have a choice. For all their talk of reproductive “freedom,” the left wants women to be constrained by their anatomy to cast a vote for any “D”-delineated candidate. The left doesn’t want women to be empowered, to make the decisions that are truly best for them. For the left, only a monolithic mindset is acceptable: Women are oppressed, both by their babies and men, and can only find liberation in shaking off the patriarchal shackles that keep them from true happiness. Oh, and those patriarchal fetters come only from Republicans, who are all old, white males who don’t care about women’s health. Nothing could be further from the truth.

“Pro-life is pro-woman,” Denise Harle, legal counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom, told The Federalist in an interview. “It’s just wrong to pit a woman against her own child and act like a woman can’t succeed and be a mom. It’s a lie. And it’s really cruel. Any pregnancy, whether planned or unplanned, involves an innocent human being.”

Harle opened her coat, flashing her baby bump and a smile, herself living proof of the right’s true empowerment. “My first pregnancy was unplanned, and I have a 1 and a half year-old now, and I’ve got another one on the way,” the successful attorney said. “It’s a blessing.”

She continued, “These are the most vulnerable among us, and so women should be the first ones out there saying these are our babies, and we can be successful in the workplace and the home and be mothers too.”

What The March for Life Offers That the Women’s March Doesn’t


To anyone who has witnessed both the Women’s March and the March for Life, they can’t help but notice a few differences — in mission, in messaging, and in spirit. At the risk of sounding like Marianne Williamson, the two events exude entirely different auras. The March for Life offers something to women that the march specifically proffered to that feminine demographic simply doesn’t.

“Well, I hate to be sappy, but the truth is [the March for Life] offers rights based on love and inclusion rather than anger and exclusion,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, told The Federalist of the difference between the back-to-back marches. “And to answer the question, why is the Women’s March dwindling as the pro-life march grows? I think it’s because of that.”

She’s right; think of the contrast. “ My  body!  My  choice!” or “Love them both.” Denying that even imperfect circumstances can still afford quality of life, or embracing   disorder-defying joy . Human rights violation or human dignity. A woman’s right to choose, or a woman’s right to fulfill her extraordinary destiny.

The March for Life Seeks to Liberate Women


If liberation is what women seek, they should abandon the progressive hive mind and stop consuming the lie that to be an empowered woman is to take up the feminist banner, screaming pro-choice mantras and loathing the man in the White House. If the Women’s March and the March for Life are any indicators, women are ditching conformity, opting instead for ideological diversity and the beauty and love the pro-life message affords. It’s the “winning message,” Dannenfelser said.


“I think women’s experience has really shown that the promises of the old-guard feminist movement were a lie,” Dannenfelser added. “They were wrong, because they were not the great liberator. Abortion has not proved to be the great liberator. The pro-life message is a far more liberating message.”

It’s amazing how much more powerful a movement can be when it’s grounded not on self, but on others. Not on hatred of an election result or a president, but on love for womankind and compassion for the life they carry inside them.

The Women’s March isn’t about women. It never has been. The March for Life emphatically is.

Someone who 'loves womankind' (including other women) show it by trusting women to know what is best for them.  Not having their personal rights usurped by religious leaders, politicians, employers and other people who have no business in women's business.  Not forcing ones own moral beliefs on others (especially when you praise and support a lying pussygrabbing greedy narcissist).

Vic,

These women's choice is for all women to not have a choice. In other words, these women want all women to be forced into carrying to term, whether they want to or not. They are just anti abortion under all cases. 

So we can go back to the good old days of back ally abortions and knitting needles. Does that sound like a plan?

Look, personally, if these women don't want to have abortions I am fine with that. What I am not fine with is them forcing that on other people.

That makes it sound like you wish we were back in the days where women paid a huge price if they wanted to enjoy sex just as much as men do. Not everyone can take the pill. Not everyone is responsible enough - which is why Norplant is often a better option, no need to remember to take a pill every day. And this abstinence only bullshit that the religious people are pushing, as well as all the attacks against PP, are making it even harder to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies. "Just say no" doesn't work. Sex is one of the major human drives and abstinence lectures don't cut it.

You mean when women actually thought about who they had sex with?  I'm old enough to remember both worlds. I grew up when there was dating and relationships that a woman demanded. Then came the pill. The society changed a lot. Not long ago I was talking with a woman about arranging what once might be considered a first date. She asked me "do you want me shaved or unshaved."  I think we've gone a little too far don't you?

 And this abstinence only bullshit that the religious people are pushing, as well as all the attacks against PP, are making it even harder to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies. "Just say no" doesn't work. Sex is one of the major human drives and abstinence lectures don't cut it.

That has never been my argument for many reasons. Abstinence in the era we live in?  We have left that for good.

when life  begins:

”A human embryo is a living human organism once conceived. It’s not a “potential life,” as a theologian tells Strauss: It’s not an inanimate object that is somehow going to start living. It’s not a functional part of a different organism, like a skin cell, that somehow becomes an organism in its own right. It’s not a potential human, either: It’s not going to switch species. “

True.  I would say when it's viable outside the womb. But if you're going to claim a zygote is a person, then sperm cells and ova are also people.  Zygotes and blastocysts and embryos are clumps of cells which can't survive outside the womb.

You mean when women actually thought about who they had sex with?

I don't get this at all. Men have never had to think about who they had sex with, but women shouldn't enjoy the same freedom? And trust me, there were plenty of women who enjoyed - and had - sex before the pill was invented. They just often paid a high price for it while the men got off scot free.

I think we've gone a little too far don't you?

Nope. Sex is a lot of fun and is a basic human urge. It can be great in a committed relationship, and can be great as a fling. Now it does sound like that woman you were planning to date was clearly not on the same page as you when it comes to sex - there's nothing wrong with people who have sex on the first date, and there's nothing wrong with people who want to wait until they're in a relationship (I can't understand anyone waiting until marriage, because marrying and then finding out you're not sexually compatible would be an absolute nightmare for me - but hey, that's fine for people who want to do that, too).

And trust me, there were plenty of women who enjoyed - and had - sex before the pill was invented.

The Bible doesn't determine when life begins...Science is supposed to do that..

1. Sperm - can live up to 5 days after leaving a mans body. Between 40 and 150 million living sperm are contained in a single ejaculation.

2. Egg - can live about 4 to 12 hours after being released from the ovaries. Women are born with about 2 million eggs and about 11,000 die each month prior to puberty.

3. Fertilized egg - cells begin to divide, travels from the fallopian tubes to the uterus 3 to 4 days after fertilization

4. Zygote - at about 7 days if the fertilized egg attached to the endometrium it continues its cell division. At 3 weeks the zygote is about 0.1 mm and still too small to see with the naked eye.

5. Embryo - At about week 5 most medical professionals consider it an embryo and a heart beat can first be heard. Week 6-8 are the first signs of brain activity. At 8 weeks it's about a 1/2 inch long.

6. Fetus - At week 11 most organs are being formed and spinal cord and the fetus is about 2 inches long.

7. Fetus - At week 14 the fetuses gender can often be determined and the first signs of movement begin. Women can usually feel the movement between week 16 and 20.

8. Fetus - By week 22 most medical professionals believe it can live outside the womb without the mother though assisted with medical devices.

9. Fetus - By week 27 the fetus is assumes the size and characteristics of a newborn and can open its eyes and begins 'breathing' amniotic fluid.

10. Birth - By 36 weeks the fetus is ready to be born and take its first breaths of air

So there are many stages of "life" which begin with the sperm and the eggs. The law says stages 1 through 8 when the zygote or fetus is still fully dependent on its host that its up to the mother to decide to go through with a pregnancy and carry to full term or to terminate the pregnancy.

So by that, when does life begin? For some it's as Monty Python said in the song "Every Sperm is Sacred" about becoming Catholic "from the moment dad came". For others, they don't consider life beginning until the baby takes its first breath. The law put's it at viability.

92% of all abortions occur at or before 12 weeks (or roughly stage 6 in the above). The vast majority of the remaining 8% occur between 12 and 22 weeks. Only a very small percentage under 1% are after viability due to rape, incest or the health of the mother.

So the debate here is really "At what stage should we take away the rights of a mother and forcibly invade her privacy so that we may protect the newly acquired rights of the fetus?".

When religious persons express their desire to ban all abortions from the moment of fertilization, most people see that as not only unreasonable but dangerous. It's not like pregnancy will stop making some women feel so desperate or scared enough to attempt to terminate it themselves or go to some back ally abortionist where their own health is also put at risk. So why not support safe and legal access to family planning?

I think any reasonable person, who wasn't stuck on some religious fantasy they've been indoctrinated with about a magical ever living "soul" being created at conception, would agree that bans at fertilization are a ridiculous demand, and just allowing any elective or "on demand" termination after viability is unreasonable. Thankfully, we already have the law set in between those two extremes.

It's about a right to an abortion

Yeah, and women have that right, despite attempts to limit or restrict it.

- concocted by a bunch of liberal judges!

Do you seriously think the SCOTUS Justices during Roe were liberal? Or are they "liberal" because you don't agree with them?

I thought that was the benefit of the pill?  No more unwanted pregnancies!

What difference does that make? THe pill is not 100% effective and accidents can still happen. But a woman's choice and rights do not end just because she becomes pregnant.

  How did that work out other than to encourage women to have sex with everyone & everything?

So women weren't having sex before the pill? Is that what you're saying? 

It's very simple - prevent an unwanted pregnancy!

And sometimes, pregnancy happens anyway. Your point?

You see there is one little problem. They consider abortion to be murder!

And they would be wrong!

Nobody knows when life begins

It's not about when "life" begins.

Show me the scientific evidence - when does life begin?

You must be confusing "life" with when it's an actual individual. A zygote is a single cell. Hardly an actual person.

 I think we've gone a little too far don't you?

Not at all. Life goes on, society progresses. Sorry if you're stuck in the past.

Abstinence in the era we live in?  We have left that for good.

Abstinence is unrealistic anyway.

 IT WAS A BOGUS RULING BASED ON A NON EXISTENT RIGHT OF PRIVACY

What makes you more of an expert on Constitutional matters than the SCOTUS?

Men didn't have to worry about getting pregnant.

But women do. So the choice to remain pregnant or not belongs to them.

Is that a defense of the so called "right of privacy?"

Are you suggesting you don't have a right to privacy? I would think rights are a good thing to have.

Not merely me..Many legal scholars have disagreed with it, including Justice Ginsburg, who accurately predicted that the ruling would lead to a longstanding movement against it. Evidently, you never heard all of that?

Actually, Justice Ginsberg agreed with the "heart" of the ruling and has supported abortion rights over the years. But it was the sweeping nature of the ruling she thought would lead to controversy over abortion.

 I also believe that sex has to mean something. That's all I'm saying.

That's merely your belief. Whether it means something to the individual is up to them.

And women have proven that they can think for themselves because they do not speak with one voice.

But they don't speak for anyone else either!

Special cases like that are a different matter. I'm only speaking of adult women with access to birth control, yet are terminating a life ( based upon one's point of view) as a right!

It's a right and established legal precedent! The circumstances surrounding a pregnancy is irrelevant. Deal with it!

I am pro-gun, but I don't want to make it easy for criminals and those with mental problems to get them. That is why I support universal background checks.

I am pro-life, but I don't believe I should get to decide when a fertilized egg becomes a human deserving of human rights which is why I support a woman's right to choose to terminate a pregnancy before it legally becomes a human. I hope and wish no women would ever have to make such a heart wrenching decision as to terminate a pregnancy. But I certainly don't think it's my right to step in and take that decision away from any woman.

I am pro-woman, which is why I support a woman's right to choose as well as pay equity for women which enables women to make choices about their own lives instead of having to remain the victims of an overbearing patriarchy. I also support the right of religious conservative women to not pursue higher education and just remain at home subservient to their male heads of household per the religious headship rules they were indoctrinated in.

I am pro-food. But I think eating chicken livers is gross. My mother used to force us to eat liver and onions and I hated it. And since leaving home, I've never eaten it again. Now while I choose to not to eat chicken liver because I think the taste and texture is extremely objectionable, I certainly wouldn't imagine I had the right to just ban everyone else from eating them.

Hamilton (in The Federalist No. 78) was emphatic about this:

Choice is about choosing whether or not to keep an unwanted pregnancy. That is all it is about. That means you can keep or not keep a pregnancy. I am so tired of this being about other things, that it is not about.

you have an opinion and they do too no matter how tired of theirs you may be.  I watched all the speeches at the march for life and the African American state senator as well as the democrat First Lady of Louisiana impressed me a lot.  So did the born alive abortion survivors who spoke.  Of course I was most pleased that Trump was the first President to go there and speak to us in person.  His words were powerful and right on.  I saw the President on Fox News and then switched to C-SPAN for the rest.

That is not an opinion. That is what choice means. What these women want to do is tell ALL women what to do with their bodies, based on their personal choice, and that is not right.

Pro choice means:

1.  Keep

2.  Adopt out

3.  Abortion

AND LETTING THE INDIVIDUAL WOMAN DECIDE WHICH CHOICE IS BEST FOR HER.

I don't decide, you don't decide......SHE DECIDES.

How many times does this have to be posted.

I know somebody who needs a liver to live.  Should you be forced to donate part of yours to her?  Since you oppose giving women a choice regarding whether someone other than themselves uses their organs?

Let's add something to make the question more reverent to this discussion, what if that woman was pregnant and the donation of part of his liver would save the fetus?

Oooohhh, excellent.

DJTF1, I demand you report to the hospital for organ harvesting.  The fetus needs its incubator to have a liver, and its rights trump hers and yours.

They also want a chance to be brought into a loving family, but that doesn't happen either. Besides we are talking about when it is nothing more but a group of cells. You may think that is a baby, but I rely on science to tell me otherwise.

If these ladies are speaking for themselves that is fine, but they should not be speaking for all women.

Like I said before, don’t ever bring a child  in this would if you can’t give that child a decent life. It’s better to stop the process then to allow the child to suffer when conscious. 

My great grandmother would say.. what’s for ya is for ya, what’s not is not.  Some women are not meant to be a mother.

There is no pro-abortion movement.

Fighting for women to have a choice is not speaking for all women.  It's allowing all women to speak and decide for themselves.  Basically the opposite of the forced-birth movement.

First of all, many people made a point to YOU that no one is pro-abortion but pro-choice. If a woman decides to keep a pregnancy, fine. If she doesn't and it is within a reasonable period, fine. See how that works? It's a choice.

No matter how many times you post it....no one is pro abortion

Here let me explain it to you again

Pro choice is for the 3 choices women have to deal with an unplanned pregnancy

1.  Birth

2.  Adopt out

3.  Abortion

It is up to the individual woman to decide what choice is best for her.

You don't decide, I don't decide....she decides.

Whatever decision she makes is the right choice for her.

It always amazes me that the party that screams about wanting more personal freedoms and government out of their lives, advocates for the exact opposite when it comes to women. 

It has nothing to do with abortion, to most of right wing, it's more about control over women than anything else.

Which is an interesting point, because most conservatives would say that they are for less government until it's about something they care about then we need more.

Thanks, rather tedious watching a bunch of mostly old men trying to justify shaming and blaming and trying to control women's physical health all the time.  Here's a hint:  if you want to understand women, listen to them.

U.S. abortion policy is a compromise which centers on the onset of fetus viability.  Before viability abortion is allowed, after, it is restricted depending on circumstances (late term abortion) . 

This is all we can do, and it should stay in place as is. 

Women have been having abortions forever whether it is legal or not, and you will not change that by adding new illegality.

The next step is pain threshold so that no abortion can cause the one dying any pain, so that no abortion except life of the mother can happen after that point.  And move 2nd trimester rules to 1st trimester and 1st trimester only until there is a measurable heart beat.

The neurological pathways necessary for pain reception do not develop until the 27th week of gestation, which is after viability.

 And move 2nd trimester rules to 1st trimester and 1st trimester only until there is a measurable heart beat.

Why? On what grounds? Such attempts have already been attempted and struck down, not to mention unreasonably restrictive.
