-Elizabeth Cady Stanton 1873
"Women becoming, consequently, weaker...than they ought to be...have not sufficient strength to discharge the first duty of mother; and sacrificing to lasciviousness the parental affection...either destroy the embryo in womb, or cast it off when born. Nature in everything demands respect, and those who violate her laws seldom violate them with impunity."
-Mary Wollstonecraft 1792
These women speak volumes IMO. I'm proud of what they set in motion for women's rights and glad they didn't live to see that NOW and NARAL have attached abortion to the coattails of their achievements. I've attached the link to these quotes and others of our early feminist foremothers.
