Feminists for Life (aka, Feminists for Life of America) is an extremist anti-abortion group with little known activism related to feminist or women's health issues. It is against abortion in all forms and for any reason, including birth control and contraception. They consider birth as the only "choice".[1]

Politics

Under George W. Bush's presidency, FFL has gained increased power to operate internationally and influence UN policies and documents: "Feminists for Life has been designated a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) at the United Nations. The Millennium Development Summit of world leaders gathered at the United Nations in September 2005 to evaluate progress of the Millennium Development Goals. The goals were designed to reduce the devastating impact of extreme poverty in the world by the year 2015. FFL shares its perspective on each of the Millennium Development Goals in light of the recent summit." [2]
