Quote of the day: “Abortion advocates are the true misogynists”

Charmaine Yoest

Charmaine Yoest

In all of their briefs they claim that abortion is essential to women’s equality and their equal dignity. Ladies, this is us that they’re talking about.

Women’s equal dignity, they claim, “demands that women have the right to decide whether to continue a pregnancy.” They go so far in their briefs to claim that “[women] would not have been able to achieve the personal or professional successes they achieve were it not for their ability to attain safe and legal abortions.”

This is an offensive and deeply harmful view of women. These abortion advocates are the true misogynists in our society and they are thoroughly discounting true female power and ability. Arguing that a woman’s destiny is shaped negatively by motherhood and that her equal citizenship is dependent on abortion is fundamentally anti-woman.

~ Americans United for Life CEO Charmaine Yoest, speaking at the Evangelicals for Life conference, as quoted by Chelsen Vicari, Patheos.com, February 3
