After Alice Paul, the author of the original Equal Rights Amendment told FFL cofounder Pat Goltz that the early American feminists were pro-life, FFL historians were the first to research and reveal the truth to the feminist and pro-life movements: Without known exception, our feminist foremothers opposed abortion (and like Susan B. Anthony) sought to address the root causes that drive women to abortion. Learn and share our original research and help FFL herald a better day when we fulfill the unrealized dream of Susan B. Anthony.
FFL first led the revolution to identify resources (on and off campus) and to create on-campus support through policies, resources and communication strategies. Students, administrators, faculty, alums and donors can help us continue the revolution by using FFL’s Tools for Schools to ensure pregnant women, expectant fathers, parents and birthparents won’t be forced to choose between terminating their education or support their children.
Struggling to find resources and support on campus, workplace, and your community or from your family and friends? Do you have a special needs baby—or are you hoping to adopt? Or maybe you are being coerced into making a decision that’s not best for you and your baby. Help is here so you don’t have to be a superhero (but we think our donors, members and activists sure are)!
