Refusing to Choose: "Two-time Emmy winner and author Patricia Heaton supports both women and their unborn children" and "serves as honorary chair of Feminists for Life."
"'Women who experience unplanned pregnancy also deserve unplanned joy,' Heaton said. 'Being a mother is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. As a member of Feminists for Life, I want to share the joy of motherhood with other women, to enable women to make life-affirming choices for themselves and the children and to elevate our societys perception of mothers.'
"Margaret Colin, another celebrity who refuses to choose between women and children, is Feminists for Lifes honorary co-chair. Her film credits include 'Three Men and a Baby' and 'Independence Day.'
"'The early American feminists who fought for our right to vote fought for the rights of pregnant womenfor society to change to accept them, not for them to change to be accepted by society,' Colin said.
"Feminists for Life focuses its efforts on eliminating the root causes of abortion. It endorses creative solutions for pregnant women like affordable housing, adequate child care, health care, maternity leave, telecommuting and a living wage."
