What do you think of this organization? I am pro-choice...ish I honestly don't know anymore what I am but for the most part I think they are a great organization and I agree with their mission. I have never looked at the issue from this perspective before...Women deserve better than abortion. Women shouldn't have to choose between having a child and having a good life. I also like that it focuses on supporting the women involved (none of the "love em till their born" mentality I often see with pro-lifers)

I think it's great!! I am very pro-life but it seems when you say that then people assume you do not care about the woman....not true!! I think it's possible to care about BOTH and it's nice to see there's an organizatio dedicated to doing just that!

I am verry pro-choice but only when it's a choice. No one should feel that they want the child but can't afford it, wont be able to have there career or life. That oviously is not a choice. If you want the child you should be able to keep it.

Which is exactly why I don't see why some conservative women get down on feminists at all. It's feminists fighting to have more maternity leave and more family rights.. Equal rights at work (where they can't just fire you for being pregnant.) I don't ever agree with anyone 100% but that doesn't make me less of a feminist.

Because I think *some* feminists have twisted feminism around into something it's not.

I know some feminsts think it's about women having more rights then men.. They don't understand it's about having equal rights.

Initially I liked the site - although I have to admit I did not go through everything, so I can't say I know I like it entirely. I think it is so important to have support out there if you want to keep your baby & can't see how you can make it through.

People like this have feminism in the true sense - equality. I liked the site, I agreed with the message.

I think thats an awesome organization. I never realized it existed, but I have to say that there are a LOT LOT of women who need to check into that cause they DO think that a child means thier life is over. That needs to change!!

I agree with that. I think that with a lot of certain "groups" are like that though. I'm a conservative Christian but I am absolulty embaressed and horrified by some of the actions of others who put themselves in that category. A few have a tendancy to give the whole group a bad name a lot. Feminism isnt per say a bad thing, but it does carry a negive view to a lot of people. Thats the whole basis of predjudice.
