Feminists all over the globe, apparently, can’t stand to see pro-life groups be awarded for helping women. The Israeli anti-abortion group Efrat has the temerity to help women who are ambivalent about abortion to have their children by offering money and support. Apparently, some find this offensive and will be protesting the award.Meanwhile, Efrat as an organization was an early inspiration for this website.
I have no clue what the significance of the Jerusalem Prize is, but I’m glad that the organizers are not backing down:
In a statement on the website of Arutz 7, which own B’Sheva, B’Sheva director David (Dudu) Sa’ada said the organization would not back down despiter pressure.“We found it especially necessary to award them the prize this year because of the unfair opposition from the public and media over the past year,” he said.
