The Women's March on Washington will not tolerate pro-life women among the ranks.
Apparently, the only thing that trumps hatred for Donald Trump is love of abortion. It's not enough to hate Trump. You are not allowed to be pro-life if you want to receive partnership status for the anti-Trump march.
From The Cut:
On January 21st, the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration, an estimated 200,000 people will join the Women’s March on Washington, which bills its purpose as “to affirm our shared humanity and pronounce our bold message of resistance and self-determination.” “Reproductive Freedom” is among their listed principles, which they define in part as “open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion.” Planned Parenthood was an early partner, as is NARAL and the National Institute for Reproductive Health. And, as the Atlantic reports, some pro-lifers were also drawn to the march.
Per the Atlantic, the Texas-based anti-choice group New Wave Feminists – tagline: “Badass. Prolife. Feminists.” – was granted partnership status on Friday, though, as of Monday, they no longer appear on the Women’s March site’s list of partners.

Text of the statement:
The Women’s March’s platform is pro-choice and that has been our stance from day one. We want to assure all of our partners, as well as participants, that we are pro-choice as clearly stated in our Unity Principles. We look forward to marching on behalf of individuals who share the view that women deserve the right to make their own reproductive decisions.
The anti-choice organization in question is not a partner of the Women’s March on Washington. We apologize for this error.
If you don't believe in killing unborn babies, you're not welcome to join in a march claiming "to affirm our shared humanity and pronounce our bold message of resistance and self-determination."
Defending humanity. Self-determination. What a joke!
These people have lost their minds.
