Anna Maria College announces that its Campus Ministry department will host Serrin M. Foster, President of Feminists for Life of America, on Monday, November 12, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. in its Zecco Performing Arts Center in Paxton, MA. Ms. Foster’s lecture, "The Feminist Case Against Abortion," will address 200 years of pro-life feminism and explain how the modern women's movement came to support abortion.
Ms. Foster has led Feminists for Life of America since 1994 and under her leadership, the organization has successfully advocated benefits for poor and pregnant women through the State Child Health Insurance Program, worked in coalition with other women's organizations to defeat the mandatory "family cap" and other punitive child exclusion provisions in welfare reform, and helped to prevent poverty and coerced abortions due to threats to withhold child support through passage of the Enhanced Child Support Act. Her speech, “The Feminist Case Against Abortion,” has been included in the anthology Women’s Rights, published in 2001 by Greenhaven Press as one in a series entitled Great Speeches in History.
Ms. Foster served on the National Taskforce Against Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence, which worked to pass the Violence Against Women Act, and testified before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee in support of the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, also known as "Laci and Conner’s Law."
