The Women’s March this Saturday is apparently not a march for women. It is strictly a march for abortion rights.
A pro-life group, New Wave Feminists, opposes President-elect Donald Trump and was listed as an official sponsor of the event. But after an article written by Emma Green, one of the march’s co-chairs, was published in The Atlantic, sharing pro-life women’s involvement, stating “We must not just talk about feminism as one issue, like access to reproductive care,” a tweet storm ensued and they were abruptly kicked out.
The reason for kicking these women out? “The right to choose is a fundamental part of feminism.”
Talk about fake news. This clearly fits the definition.
Planned Parenthood fangirls like Lena and her friends should know that most of the country disagrees with them. In fact, 80 percent of Americans think abortion should be restricted to the first trimester, and most women support the Hyde Amendment — a federal law that restricts taxpayer dollars from funding abortions. Planned Parenthood’s message — if you have a uterus then you should love abortion because every woman does — is totally false. Pushing that line of rhetoric on the Women’s March distorts reality and excludes not women’s voices, but the majority of women’s voices.
In truth, most women believe there should be restrictions on abortion, and a much larger proportion of Americans (49 percent) think abortion is morally wrong than those who think it is morally acceptable (15 percent).
