Pro-life feminist group kicked out of anti-Trump Women's March on Washington

Pro-life feminist group kicked out of anti-Trump Women's March on Washington

As many as 200,000 people are expected to attend a large protest in support of women's rights on Saturday.

"The anti-choice organization is not a partner of the Women's March on Washington", the organizers added.

"We look forward to marching on behalf of individuals who share the view that women deserve the right to make their own reproductive decisions", they wrote in a statement. "We had already announced a reunion in October 2017 for the 20th anniversary". "These are the women we would be trying to reach, anyway". Here's the celebs we know will be marching so far.

"They had a clear LGBTQ agenda and created this confusion by saying we were involved. We are realists. We can't change the results of this election". "I expect there to be a lot of comraderies, a lot of passion", says Debbie Eden.

"The Women's March platform is pro-choice and that has been our stance from day one". That leadership now includes three prominent activist women of color, Tamika Mallory, a gun control advocate and board member of the Gathering for Justice, a nonprofit founded by Harry Belafonte; Linda Sarsour, executive director of the Arab American Association of NY; and Carmen Perez, executive director of the Gathering for Justice.

Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa of New Wave Feminists told LifeSiteNews that the group will still attend the march. "It's numerous same issues, basic human rights".

While she is headed to Washington D.C., Poloni-Staudinger also helped organize Flagstaff's version of the Women's March, called A March for Love. Canada has a gender-balanced federal cabinet, and we enjoy universal health care, paid parental leave and freedom of choice around reproductive rights.

"This is not just about a march". Both the Women's March on Washington-CNY Section and Women TIES have sold-out buses.

In fact, only one person who took the podium Tuesday even mentioned the President-elect by name, majority preferring to direct their remarks to the "incoming administration". The march's organizers also released a "guiding vision" statement that advocates "open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people".

Even aside from the absurdity of these arguments, such unconscionable attacks on pro-life women denigrate a large share of the nation's female population: Recent data from the Pew Research Center shows that 40 percent of US women believe abortion should be illegal in all or most cases.

They will march from the plaza to the city's Trump Tower, where the sign that had been covered with tarps was uncovered for the first time in months on Wednesday. That's why the Women's March movement is so important. Incoming President Trump vows to appoint Supreme Court justices who will revoke women's right to choose to end pregnancies. When the rise of Donald Trump may be shattering the bonds that have tied so many pro-life women to the Republican Party, why not do everything possible to encourage these women to make a complete break and join the opposition?
