Feminists For Life
Feminists for Life of America (FFL) is a non-profit, pro-life feminist, non-governmental organization (NGO). Established in 1972 and now based in Alexandria, Virginia, the organization describes itself as "shaped by the core feminist values of justice, nondiscrimination, and nonviolence." FFL is dedicated to "systematically eliminating the root causes that drive women to abortion—primarily lack of practical resources and support—through holistic, woman-centered solutions." FFL publishes a quarterly magazine, The American Feminist, and aims to reach young women, college students in particular.
Feminists for Life professes to "stand on more than two hundred years of pro-life feminist history," continuing a tradition of nineteenth-century American feminists such as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. This position has been challenged, however, by some who question comparisons between 19th and 20th century views on abortion, as well as the attribution of certain quotes to Anthony.

Famous quotes containing the words life and/or feminists:
“The future of humanity is uncertain, even in the most prosperous countries, and the quality of life deteriorates; and yet I believe that what is being discovered about the infinitely large and infinitely small is sufficient to absolve this end of the century and millennium. What a very few are acquiring in knowledge of the physical world will perhaps cause this period not to be judged as a pure return of barbarism.”
—Primo Levi (19191987)
“Take motherhood: nobody ever thought of putting it on a moral pedestal until some brash feminists pointed out, about a century ago, that the pay is lousy and the career ladder nonexistent.”
—Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)
