Students for Life of Michigan host Vice President of Feminists for Life

On November 18, Sally Winn, Vice President of Feminists for Life, spoke on the campus of the University of Michigan. 

Winn began her lecture on inequalities that women have faced throughout history, such as a lack of suffrage, property rights and access to education. Winn then spoke about her experience as a college student at Indiana University who struggled with an unplanned pregnancy, later becoming a student mother.

Winn argued that the real issue was the lack of resources provided by her campus and the lack of resources provided to pregnant women in general.

“Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women,” Winn said. “Women don’t have abortions because they want to; they have abortions because they lack support emotionally and finically and all the things they need to have to have a child.”
