Feminism is based on the principle that women have innate worth, inalienable rights, and valuable ideas and talents to contribute to society. True feminism goes beyond mere equality -- insists not only that women be given equal rights with men, but that they be respected for themselves as well. In addition, feminism has always been about more than just women's rights. The same individuals who were key figures in the early women's rights movement were also influential abolitionists, fighters for workers and children's rights, and reformers at all levels of government. At the heart of the women's rights movement has always been the idea that each individual has certain innate rights; that each individual is a valuable, contributing member of society.
The terms 'ProLife' and 'Feminist' tend to be viewed as opposing. But, considering the basic ethic of the value of all individuals that feminism is based on, there is nothing contradictory about a pro-woman, pro-prenatal rights stance. In fact, most early feminists, such as Susan B. Anthony, were strongly and vocally pro-life. Both supporting women's rights and opposing abortion uphold the standard that every individual is deserving of respect.
