For me, FCL is more than an organization- it is a diverse community made up of individuals from all walks of life who share common goals- to be advocates for the dehumanized; to be partners with the disenfranchised; to be a unified voice for those who are silenced. As a daughter of social activists who worked alongside folks like Cesar Chavez and for causes like the Biafran Relief, I grew up cognizant of the flaws within our world community- flaws that are, to be honest, quite horrendous and terrifying. However, I also witnessed and, in turn, understood the power of what MLK King Jr. called Soul Force- what MK Gandhi called Satyagraha- nonviolent resistance to bring about truth and justice. This is the mission of FCL: to be an active voice for a consistent life ethic through our education, advocacy and outreach efforts. Feminists Choosing Life of New York aims to promote a culture in which women can choose life from conception to natural death. No person is denied a place, a voice, a life. As a mother of two young children, I joined FCL to work with other mothers who may not know all their options- who may not understand the power they hold- who may not know how they feed their children...love their children....motherhood is no easy task, but it is a joyous one and an honorable one when you are given support and respect from the communities in which you live. FCL is not a mouthpiece- it is a strong and active voice.
