I was significantly interested to notice an article at The Scoop published recently, titled Why Has The Feminist Movement Betrayed Women?
The piece begins:
Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women. Abortion betrays the basic feminist principles of nonviolence, non-discrimination and justice for all.”
And it’s a noble sentiment. A naïve but noble sentiment. If feminism was what feminism is to the unnamed author of this piece, it may well be a benign if not benevolent force. Unfortunately, we can see from the terrorism of the U.K.’s First Wave Suffragettes to the abortion issue itself that nonviolence is not a feminist principle. Unfortunately, we can see from consistent feminist pushes to establish, entrench and expand upon privileges for women and girls that non-discrimination is not a feminist principle. And unfortunately, we can see from #TimesUp, #MeToo, campaigns for ever more lenient treatment of the female minority in prison (ignoring the majority) and lobbying to institute a believe all women approach in both family courts and sex crime cases that justice for all is certainly not a feminist principle.
The piece continues:
The feminist movement has the responsibility of promoting protection of the human rights of women from conception to natural death, the foundation right being the right to life. The feminist movement should be at the forefront in seeking protection of women in the first nine months of life in their mother’s womb.”
I only wish that the feminist movement would accept such a responsibility. I can empathise with the concept of that responsibility falling to feminists, it does seem natural, and yet the mainstream of feminism is radically pro-abortion and utterly intolerant of anyone who thinks differently – which is, I assume, why this author remains anonymous.
The piece ends:
We stand in solidarity with women who have been betrayed by those they count on the most, with women who have underestimated their own strength, with women who have experienced abortion and are silent no more, with young men and women who mourn their missing siblings. We mourn with those pregnant women who naively went to Family Planning seeking help and were offered :assistance” and were encouraged to terminate the life of their precious child. We mourn with men who weren’t given a choice or who contributed to an abortion that they now regret.
All this is unthinkable.”
J4MB echoes the sentiment and extends a hand to anyone, feminist or non, who will object to the mass slaughter of the most vulnerable members of our society.
