According to the Susan B. Anthony List, which works to elect pro-life candidates, especially pro-life women, “The percentage of women in the House of Representatives who are pro-life increased by 60 percent while the percentage of women who are pro-choice decreased by 16 percent.” Additionally, one pro-life woman was elected to the Senate (from New Hampshire); previously there had been none. And there are now four pro-life women governors in the U.S., outnumbering the two legal-abortion-activist women governors, who are both up for reelection in 2012.
“In the same way that many opponents of slavery and racism have failed to apply their principles to the question of women’s rights, so feminist writers have a peculiarly dense blind spot about the unborn. No argument in favour of freely available abortion is tenable in the light of feminist ideals and principles. And all of them bear an alarming resemblance to the arguments used by men to justify discrimination against women.”
"We are thrilled that Governor Palin will be joining the Susan B. Anthony List for our May fundraiser," said General Chairman Jane Abraham in a statement. "As a mother, wife, and successful leader -- she embodies what it means to be a pro-life feminist today. From moms at the PTA to women leaders in the boardroom, Sarah Palin continues to serve as a role model for what it means to be a true American woman leader, and we are honored to have her stand with us."
