Susan B. Anthony is well known as a leader of the women’s suffrage movement and as a pioneer in the pro-life movement. She was also born in Adams, Massachusetts in 1820, 100 years before the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote, and nearly 200 years ago.
Susan B.’s birthplace is now a museum in her honor and they are preparing for the celebration of that upcoming centennial of suffrage and bicentennial of her birth in 2020 starting with some upcoming events and going right through that year. You can find out more in the Birthplace Museum’s latest newsletter or by visiting their web site. There’s also a separate web site just for the Suffrage Centennial.
Many of the suffragettes were mothers and they valued the lives of all children, born and unborn. We can honor them and their memories in the run-up to the centennial in three years by visiting the museum and taking part in the celebrations. Pro-life is pro-women and the votes of the many pro-life women are what have enabled us to make the progress we have in restoring a pro-life culture.
