There is a Life in Your Hand

Before God formed me in the womb He knew me. He covered me in your womb. I praise the Lord because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. My form was not hidden from Him when I was created in secret, And curiously wrought; hidden from every eye, but His. His eyes beheld my substance while I was yet incomplete; And in His book all my members were recorded, Before they came to be. My precious life was fashioned by God's loving hands, And placed within you to keep. Now my life is in your hand.
Adapted from Jeremiah 1:5, Psalm 139:13-16

The Pro-Life Women of the Feminist Movement

The following are actual quotes from the prominent leaders of the feminist movement that were taken from an advertisement for Feminists for Life of America.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton - "When we consider that women are treated as property, it is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit." - Letter to Julia Ward Howe, Oct. 16, 1878.

Susan B. Anthony - "I deplore the horrible crime of child murder...we want prevention, not merely punishment. We must reach the root of the is practiced by those whose inmost souls revolt from the dreadful matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed...but oh! thrice guilty is he who drove her to the desperation which impelled her to the crime." - The Revolution, July 8, 1869.

Matilda Gage - (This) subject...lies deeper down into woman's wrongs than any other...The crime of abortion is not one in which the guilt lies solely or even chiefly with the woman...I hesitate not to assert that most of this crime of 'child murder', 'abortion', 'infanticide', lies at the door of the male sex." - The Revolution, April 9, 1868.

Mattie Brinkerhoff -"When a man steals, we may safely conclude that there is something wrong in when a woman destroys the life of her unborn child, it is an evidence that...she has been greatly wronged." The Revolution, Sept. 2, 1869

Victoria Woodhill - "Every woman knows that if she were free, she would never...think of murdering (a child) before its birth." Wheeling, W. Virginia Evening Standard, Nov. 17, 1875
