This weekend’s March for Life will bring together those committed to protecting and defending life from around the nation. The theme, “Life Empowers: Pro-Life is Pro-Woman,” is especially fitting in a culture where feminism is prevalent.

In his top-selling book, Jezebel’s War with America: The Plot to Destroy Our Country and What We Can Do to Turn the Tide, author and national radio host Dr. Michael Brown writes that both a militant pro-abortion agenda and extreme feminism are evident because the evil spirit of Queen Jezebel, a demonically controlled woman from the Bible, is still operating in America today.

But America’s earliest feminist leaders, he writes, were pro-life.

“In contrast with today’s radical-feminist, baby-killing spirit, the women’s movement in America in the late 1800s was anything but pro-abortion,” Brown says. “These women minced no words, referring to abortionists as ‘child murderers,’ with well-known suffragist Elizabeth Cady Stanton classifying abortion as ‘infanticide.’ And these were the radical leaders of the early women’s movement in America!”

Brown points to other pioneer leaders in Jezebel’s War with America, chapter 5, “The Spirit of Baby Killing”:

“We are aware that many women attempt to excuse themselves for procuring abortions, upon the ground that it is not murder. But the fact of resort to so weak an argument only shows the more palpably that they fully realize the enormity of the crime. Is it not equally destroying the would-be future oak to crush the sprout before it pushes its head above the sod, as to cut down the sapling, or to saw down the tree? Is it not equally to destroy life, to crush it in the very germ, and to take it when the germ has evolved to any given point in the line of its development?” —Victoria Woodhull and Tennessee Claflin

“Guilty? Yes. No matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; but oh!, thrice guilty is he who, for selfish gratification, heedless of her prayers, indifferent to her fate, drove her to the desperation which impelled her to the crime.” —Susan B. Anthony

“Child murderers practice their profession without let or hindrance, and open infant butcheries unquestioned … Is there no remedy for all this antenatal child murder? … Perhaps there will come a time when … an unmarried mother will not be despised because of her motherhood … and when the right of the unborn to be born will not be denied or interfered with.” —Sarah F. Norton
