The SHOCKING Truth About Early Feminists And Abortion (5 Pics)

 Today, if the word “feminist” is mentioned, a picture comes to mind of a radical liberal touting the benefits of Planned Parenthood.  For the modern feminist religion, abortion is the chief sacrament.
Yet, the founders of feminism and women’s rights in America would be shocked at this notion of “abortion on demand” as a chief plank in the modern feminist manifesto.
Life News explains further:
Abortion and feminism often appear to go hand-in-hand in modern America
But when people examine the history of feminism in America, many are surprised to learn that the first wave feminists were vocal opponents of abortion.
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, recently penned a column for Time Magazine about the early suffragettes’ opposition to abortion. In it, she referenced the new film “Suffragette,” which explores the struggle for women’s rights in England.

Dannenfelser wrote:
But would those early pioneers recognize the movement that claims to speak for the rights of women today?
On the issue of abortion, they would not. Many of today’s feminists see abortion as one of the touchstones of their movement. Yet many of the early leaders of the women’s suffrage movement in the U.S. believed that the rights of mother and child are inextricably linked and that the right to life and the right to vote are rooted in the inherent dignity of each human person.
 She is right.  The first feminists in America were not secular socialist liberals.  Many were motivated by religious faith.

Life News goes on:

Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a leader in the early feminist movement, linked women’s rights to the rights of unborn children. She wrote that “when we consider that women are treated as property, it is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit.”
 Dannenfelser’s column also mentioned Victoria Woodhull, the first female candidate for president – who ran before she even had the right to vote. Woodhull wrote, “Every woman knows that if she were free, she would never bear an unwished-for child, nor think of murdering one before its birth.”
 Susan B. Anthony, who managed the early feminist newspaper “The Revolution,” referred to abortion as an exploitation of women, Dannenfelser wrote.
According to research by Feminists for Life, Anthony also refused to make money off abortion advertising in her newspaper. She approved a policy for “The Revolution” that rejected ads for “quack medicines” because “Restellism has long found in these broths of Beelzebub, its securest hiding place.” Restellism was a period term for abortion.
Of course, no modern feminist would admit these historical facts because they show just how far from original feminism the movement has degenerated today.
Life News summarizes:
These early feminists (and many more) had the wisdom to realize that killing an unborn child never should be an answer to women’s problems. They recognized the truth that being pro-life is pro-woman. And it’s encouraging to see a national publication recognize that on its pages, too.
Don’t expect to hear these truths on the nightly news.  The Democrat Party – which owns the media – is rabidly in love with killing unwanted, unborn children.
Yet, it is important to get the truth out there.  Socialists have to alter history if they want to gain control of any society.
Their policies and tyranny are so devoid of any intrinsic redeeming value that they have to reinvent reality in order to survive.

Abortion and modern feminism is a telling example of this truth.  Feminists, while claiming to liberate women have made them the victims of the exploitation of the abortion industry.

Groups like Planned Parenthood are making billions from the suffering of women.
And, no liberal feminist groups exist to heal the physical and emotion scars women who have had abortions are forced to endure.
No, America’s first feminists would not be pleased at all by what has happened to the movement they started.
