From Card Carrying Member of NARAL to Feminist for Life Karen Shablin Speaks Out March 2, 2009

Posted by Daniel Downs in abortion, children, feminists, life, news.

Shablin was a card-carrying member of NARAL.

In her upcoming lectures, Karen discusses the reasons that led her to have an abortion, the disproportionately high number of African American women who—like her—are driven to abortion, factors that made her reconsider abortion, and why today she is a Feminist for Life.

Karen is a health policy expert and former state Medicaid agency head.

In observance of the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Karen recently addressed tens of thousands at the West Coast Walk for Life held in San Francisco.

If you can’t make it to one of Karen’s upcoming lectures, check out Feminists for Life’s recently released video featuring Karen on FFL’s website and YouTube.

One of Karen’s favorite feminists is Fannie Lou Hamer. Learn more by reading “’Nobody’s Free Until Everybody’s Free’: The Consistently Nonviolent Activism of Fannie Lou Townsend Hamer“ by Mary Krane Derr (see link p. 20).

If Karen had carried her pregnancy to term in her twenties, she would be on welfare and not traipsing around the country proselytizing her anti-choice message. If she really cares about life she should take in a foster child or have a child or adopt a child and not take her personal grief and regret out on other women. Yes, some women regret their choice to have an abortion, but the vast majority of them don’t.

I wonder if Lilly is trying to convince Shaq, or convince the world of women who still have a moral conscience.
