Same day as the March for Life, I went to the National Campus Life Network dinner at a fun, festive, latin restaurant in Ottawa’s Byward Market. I will be back for some more mojitos and salsa lessons. But I digress.
As we all know, the pro-life movement is populated by largely, old, white men who want to tell women what to do. Evidence in the photo below. These photos keep appearing in my Facebook profile, so I thought it was time to post one. At the dinner, I spoke with eloquent women with degrees from fancy Ivy League universities. Very troubling. As we all further know, pro-life women are home, barefoot and pregnant, wondering how that happened to them. Finally, while waiting for the bus I had a conversation with one young woman whose job was working with the elderly in a home. And I just thought to myself, what nerve! She’s supposed to only care for people while they are in the womb.
People of the pro-life persuasion: Here’s to working ourselves out of the activism niche because of our success. I’ll buy a round of mojitos to that!
