SFLA President Blasts Hypocrisy of 2023 Women’s Convention: “True Feminism Protects Born & Preborn Women” 

Caroline Wharton - 19 Oct 2023

SFLA Protests to Demand Justice for Those in the Womb & Honesty for Women on Abortion Risks 

“The Women’s Convention is more a masquerade than a conference. You can dress it up with pro-women mantras and a line-up of female speakers, but at the end of the day, this event is abortion extremism disguised as feminism, said Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “True feminism protects born and preborn women, which means telling women the truth about dangerous abortion risks and advocating for the right to life for those in the womb. ‘Reproductive justice,’ on the other hand, is a perversion of this movement and has no place on the agenda.”

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN (10-19-2023) – As Students for Life of America (SFLA) President Kristan Hawkins called out the pretense of the 2023 Women’s Convention as “abortion extremism disguised as feminism,” SFLA will protest the Baird Center event accordingly on October 21, 2023 at 400 West Wisconsin Ave, Milwaukee, Wisconsin from 11:00 a.m. local time to 12:30 p.m. SFLA Western Regional Manager Sarah Zarr will be coordinating this event. 

Alongside SFLA team members, the Pro-Life Generation from schools and parishes across the state will be protesting wearing shirts and signs that read “Pro-Life, Pro-Woman.” To show what true respect and support for women looks like, the group will also be delivering maternal and baby items to a pregnancy resource center later in the day. 

MEDIA ADVISORY: SFLA team members and the Pro-life Generation will be available for interview and B-roll opportunities on the ground. To get in touch with them on the day of or schedule a pre-interview, contact [email protected]

The Women’s Convention is brought by the same individuals and entities leading the Women’s March, which SFLA has spoken out against in the past as pro-life women have repeatedly been uninvited. Hawkins has been forthright about how conversations on women’s issues have been overtaken by abortion support, telling the Washington Post

“It further proves that this is what the abortion industry does. They have taken over any talk of feminism in the country to point out that if you are antiabortion, you are accused of being anti-woman.”
