So, where are the feminists?

Have you noticed that not one prominent feminist has said jack about Dr. Gosnell, the Philadelphia butcher? Feminism is for women who, like Daisy Buchanan in the Great Gatsby, smash up things, societies and creatures and go on to their next obsession leaving other people to deal witht the wreckage. They don't care about the rest of us as long as they get what they want.

They will not condemn an abortion clinic that has cat urine and feces all over the place. They will not condemn blood caked tables and recliners. They will not utter a peep of protest about the unsterilized instruments of death. Why not? Becuase if they do, they might have to look at the "nice"abortion clinics they go to. Far better for a poor, black girl in the ghetto to be maimed or dead than that they should have a moment's pause about their precious cause. They are like Gollum and his infernal ring.

Good for you, Dymphna!

You got it, Dymphna. Abortion is their "precious" sacrament. Women dying are just collateral damage. That's why they totally ignore the increasing numbers of women who carry signs saying, "I regret my abortion." They have to close their eyes and pretend they don't exist.

We need to pray for feminists because many are sad and broken women who hate themselves. Much of their outward rage covers an inward self-loathing. Listening to the witness of those who have left feminism is eye-opening. Jane Brennan's powerful testimony, Motherhood Interrupted, describes her own journey from angry feminist to Catholic revert. It's a beautiful story. Check out her blog here:

As a feminist, let me just say....I'm not angry and self-loathing, I'm certainly not like
Daisy Buchanan, and I believe that Abortion is a terrible thing. The idea of of terminating an unborn baby is unthinkable, but that in no way means that women must give up the right to choose what to do with their own body. Although you may protest, if abortion was banned, women all over the country would get illegal terminations, often causing illness or death to not only the unborn baby but to themselves.
I completely understand your view on this. However, I feel that stating that all feminists are terrible because of this is simply ridiculous and hurtful. I am a feminist simply because I feel that the world needs to work harder to bring equality between men and women. It is very possible for someone to be a feminist and pro-life. Feminism is not the true source of abortion.
Despite that, i want to make it clear that it is very possible to be anti-abortion yet pro-CHOICE. I am.
