I’m an anti-abortion feminist. I’ll walk at the Women’s March, whether organizers like it or not. - The Washington Post
When the Atlantic reported that the Women’s March had approved New Wave Feminists, a pro-life feminist group, as an official partner, Twitter exploded with the rage of a thousand pro-choice feminists. They insisted that being pro-life and feminist is impossible, and that New Wave Feminists is “anti-woman,” “misogynist,” “nauseating” and worse.
You can guess what happened next. The Women’s March leadership caved to the pressure and removed New Wave Feminists from their website. Afterward, they released a statement declaring that their “platform is pro-choice and has been from day one” and that “the anti-choice organization in question is not a partner. . . . We apologize for this error.”
