“What about the baby?” asked The Dreamer.

Charmaine and our first born, The Dreamer, ventured to an academic venue to answer “What is Feminism?”

Charmaine was joined on the panel by Carrie Lukas, from the Independent Women’s Forum.

The Dreamer was aghast at the harsh feminist literature on abortion.

    I wanted to let you know, I looked up the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which I had never heard of before. I appreciate you sharing this with us. It’s hard to imagine what justifications could be used to allow living, breathing babies to die due to lack of care (or whatever other horrible things that were going on).

    I do really appreciate your willingness to participate in the discussion on feminism. As it is generally a fairly liberal concept, I was happy to see alternative voices.

    Best Wishes,
