“Women’s March” excludes Pro-life Women

Washington, D.C. — A recent Guttmacher study shows abortion rates have reached a historic low. This comes at a time when pro-abortion women are planning a “women’s march” in Washington, D.C., specifically excluding pro-life women. Concerned Women for America CEO and President Penny Nance had this to say:

“I am so proud of the work the pro-life movement has done to reduce the number of abortions in America, which are now at a historic low since Roe v. Wade in 1973. We will continue to work tirelessly through public policy, cultural education, and compassionate ministries to help pregnant women and make abortion unnecessary and unwanted in America. The pro-life movement’s next task is taking down Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. Although the national abortion rate has decreased since the peak rate in 1990, Planned Parenthood’s abortion rate continues to increase.

“This weekend, Planned Parenthood will join other pro-abortion groups at ‘The Women’s March.’ I want to make it clear, these groups do not speak for me, do not speak for all women, and do not represent the 5 out of 10 women who identify as pro-life.  In fact, the organizers are not even allowing pro-life women to participate in the march.  A march will never be a ‘women’s march’ when it tells half of American’s women ‘need not apply.’  This march had the potential to be a bipartisan and inclusive conversation on women in America — but is instead furthering an abortion-centric worldview that does nothing but harm women, children, and authentic women’s health.”
