Happy birthday wishes to Susan B. Anthony

I would like to wish Susan B. Anthony a happy birthday on Feb. 15, 2003. That day commemorates the 183rd Anniversary of her birthday.

Most people recognize the name Susan B. Anthony as that of the great women’s rights campaigner. Susan B. Anthony was indeed instrumental in helping women achieve the right to vote in 1920.

She was opposed to slavery and legal prostitution. She believed everyone should have the right to vote. Susan B. Anthony believed that all people should be treated equally and she made no exception for the unborn; she was opposed to abortion.

Susan B. Anthony believed that unborn children had the right to life and she referred to abortion as “child murder” in her newspaper, The Revolution. She recognized the need to “eradicate the most monstrous crime” of abortion from society. It is often unreported in history that Anthony held such strong pro-life views.

That is why I’m writing to you today in honor of her birthday. I want everyone to know that Susan B. Anthony was not just a champion of women, but also a champion for the unborn.

Happy Birthday, Susan B. Anthony.
