Sarah Palin Is Wrong: Susan B. Anthony Was Not "Pro Life"

Herstorians and authors Ann Gordon and Lynn Sherr put the lie to rest. While the pro life faction likes to claim that Susan B. Anthony was anti choice, there is absolutely no evidence to support the claim.

I've read a fair amount by and about Susan B. Anthony too, and not only was she not pro life, she was not even pro marriage. The woman vowed that as long as men enjoyed a higher status than women, she would abstain from marriage. True to her word, she never married. Anthony was also known to hide runaway wives from the law. She was not a conservative family values kind of woman.
