Majority of pro-lifers not anti-feminist, even years ago

Even back in 1981, pro-lifers were not anti-feminist, as the pro-abortion side claimed. According to a 1981 survey of  National Right to Life Committee members:

90% felt that women “should not leave running the country up to men”

83% approved of women working regardless of marital status and husband’s income

They did show conservative views on sexuality, however:

87% disapproved of premarital sex

75% opposed giving birth control information to teens without parental consent

The survey was conducted by Daniel Granberg and was cited in:

Faye D Ginsburg Contested Lives: the Abortion Debate in an American Community (Berkeley, California: University of California Press, 1989, 1998)
