Feminists for Life

  The feminists for life organisation is devoted to bringing back what they call a " renaissance". They are devoted to returning the old "pro-life feminists" vision of bring about a life that is equal and fair for women. Their principles are revolved around the empowerment of women and are as such:

*Giving them the chance the fate over their own pregnancy and what they can do with their own bodies "A world in which pregnancy, motherhood, and birthmotherhood are accepted and supported." They are supportive of giving women the right to abortion.

*They also believe that women shouldn't have to compromise the opportunities they are able to receive because of their gender. Issues such as being a mother shouldn't get in the way them being successful. They, therefore, want mothers and other women to gain more support both financially and other means. "Campuses and workplaces that support mothers in practical ways and do not force them to choose between their education or career plans and their children."

*More generally they want parents to be supported no matter what they choose to do. Whether they are keen on going into work or staying at home, they believe that they should be respected and backed. "A culture in which parents are respected, whether they decide to stay at home or return to work."
