Female supporters of abortion who demand all women think like they do are not real feminists, former U.S. ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said in Washington D.C., Mediaite reported.
Giving a keynote speech at the Susan B. Anthony List's Campaign for Life Gala on Monday night, Haley said "many on the left use the abortion debate to divide women and demand conformity."
Haley stressed, however, "the idea that women must adhere to a particular set of values is one of the most anti-women ideas in today's culture. It is a rejection of the ideas of equality and tolerance that the women's movement is supposed to be about."
She said being against abortion has nothing to do with being anti-woman, but about being for "a baby's right to live, the most basic right there is."
She emphasized her experience has taught her "each and every life is a gift from God. . . . I can't stomach the idea that we wouldn't do everything in our power to protect and nurture those lives."
Haley added "As a pro-life, female governor, I was blessed with a unique platform, and I made every effort to use it appropriately. Not to lob attacks at people who disagreed with me, not to diminish the other side, but to reframe the debate."
She encouraged all those who are pro-life to continue the struggle to do God's work.
