In the name of female empowerment, feminism, independence, individuality, and equality women are being convinced that being a mother is a sign of weakness. Pro-abortion feminists, along with pro-abortion men, have changed the narrative to convince women that giving birth to an unplanned child is a sign of weakness, of giving up, or even worse: not fair to the baby.
On the other hand, pro-life feminists understand that giving birth is the ultimate proof that women can do anything on their own. Sure, a man is required for the conception of a child, but beyond that, women are able to manage their lives, make decisions, have careers, and build multi-million dollar businesses - even with a baby on their hip.
Abby Johnson, Alveda King, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Michelle Malkin, Celine Dion, Patricia Heaton, Sarah Palin, and Candace Cameron Bure are all very successful pro-life advocates who have enjoyed success while also standing firm in their values. Even if you look at celebrities and female leaders who are pro-abortion, consider the number of these women who didn’t put off motherhood for their careers. Ever heard of Beyonce? How about Kim Kardashian or Angelina Jolie? All women who had babies right in the middle of their success and it didn’t change a thing for them. Tell us again how babies prevent women from achieving their goals.
The women who stand confidently as pro-life feminists share the same, truthful message. A woman doesn’t have to give up one thing in order to be successful. Even if, at her very core, a woman knows she is not capable of parenting a child or providing a safe and nurturing environment, adoption is an option for every woman.
Adoption is the ultimate feminist choice. It shows that a woman can honor her body’s ability to develop another human life, have the strength and bravery to give birth to that life, and make the difficult decision and action of offering her child over to someone who is not able to do what she did. Sacrifice? No. Celebration. Celebration of a woman’s strength and wisdom.
In a world where women like to know that they can do anything a man can do, let us remind them that not only can they do anything a man can do, but they can also do one thing a man cannot do: give life to a human being. Now that deserves celebration.
"She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard. She dresses herself with strength and makes her arms strong." - Proverbs 31:16-17
Help us preserve the sanctity of life by becoming a Loving Life Partner.
