Letter: Not all were welcome in march to support women’s rights

February 2, 2017

Would I have been welcome at the feminist march on Jan. 21? Maybe I would be welcomed since I was not an ardent supporter of Donald Trump. I did not even vote for him until my first 16 choices were eliminated.

I do support equal rights for all women and all men. I would proudly have marched with my daughters who marched that day in Boston and St Paul. Goodness, I even met with and talked to Gloria Steinem at a small group meeting in New York City in 1976.

Then again maybe I would not be welcomed. The pro-life women in Washington, D.C., were told that they were not welcome. I did not understand this as they were not for Trump and they were for women’s rights. I would have needed, however, to carry a sign to show why I support equal rights for all women and all men.

The sign would say: “Women’s rights are a social justice issue. We have lost more than 29 million women in the U.S. since Roe vs. Wade. I support life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for every man and every woman.”

Search Google for “58,586,256 Abortions in America” and tell me who has really lost their rights.
