Pro-life group removed from Women's March on Washington

"The anti-choice organization in question is not a partner of the Women's March on Washington", the organizers said in a statement.

Almost 400 partners are listed on the Women's March website, and the list includes groups such as FREE THE NIPPLE, EMILY'S List, Georgetwon University College Democrats, National Abortion Federation, #VOTEPROCHOICE, Planned Parenthood, and YWCA USA.

On Sunday, pro-life group New Wave Feminists announced that the women's march officially accepted them as partners.

Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa, New Wave Feminists' president, told the Atlantic, "I was very concerned about the fact that in 2017, our presidential candidate was such a diehard misogynist..."

The Women's March responded by disassociating New Wave Feminists and Tweeting that its platform is pro-choice.

The Women's March on Washington is scheduled to take place in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, the day after Donald Trump's inauguration.

It also Tweeted "we look forward to marching on behalf of individuals who share the view that women deserve the right to make their own reproductive decisions".

Pew data from April 2016 reveals that approximately 40 percent of American women believe that abortion should be illegal in all or most cases.

Following the publication of the Atlantic's article, there was a backlash against the Women's March, with many saying that feminism and anti-choice politics are incompatible.

A group of feminists has been removed as a sponsor of the Women's March on Washington because it does not support abortion rights.

In the article from The Atlantic, march organizers were quoted as saying that pro-lifers would be welcome.

As Breitbart News reported Saturday, the anti-Trump protest march intends to showcase the losing platform of Hillary Clinton, especially her dogged devotion to abortion-on-demand. They had received notice on Friday that women's march organizers were happy to add them to the partner list (to be fair, it was an automated reply every partner received). Strongly pro-choice organizations Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation, #VOTEPROCHOICE, The Center for Reproductive Rights, Catholics for Choice, and EMILY'S List, are all listed as partner organizations for the March.

"We are applying to partner with the Women's March on Washington in order to represent the full spectrum of women advocating for human rights and nonviolence for all, and confronting injustice towards the marginalized members of our society". She plans on carrying signs that say "War is not pro-life", and "Torture is not pro-life" - along with anti-abortion messages.

It's unclear how this would support women. Bob Bland, one of the event's co-chairs, told Green that "We must not just talk about feminism as one issue, like access to reproductive care", and said she was happy to see women of all backgrounds involved.
