Who Made Exceptional Choices When Facing “Hard Cases”

Feminists for Life’s 2012 special issue of The American Feminist focuses on “Hard Cases, Exceptional Choices.”  FFL President Serrin M. Foster answers the most controversial and important questions of our day: “What about rape (including statutory rape and incest), disability, and life of the mother?” Following the pro-woman answers to pro-choice questions in each section are firsthand accounts by a dozen women that Feminists for Life is recognizing as “Remarkable Pro-Life Women.®”

“These Remarkable Pro-Life Women® faced life’s toughest questions without resorting to violence-even those who were victims of a violent act. Those who faced the worst news about their unborn children gave them every chance at life. And those who were born despite the odds passed their gift forward. Each of these women is remarkable in her own way.” says Foster.











Analyn Megison, Heather Gemmen Wilson, and Joyce McCauley-Benner each embraced nonviolence for themselves and their unborn children after they were raped and soon learned they were pregnant.



Rebecca Kiessling and Juda Myers, both conceived as a result of rape, assert the inherent value of every life.

Julia Schoch details her gratitude for her daughter’s birthmother, an uncommonly brave 13-year-old rape survivor.




Kristi Hofferber learned she was the only survivor of six children conceived in incest, and mourns her missing siblings.

Angelica Talavera thanks her mother for daring to go against medical advice to continue her pregnancy-and passed it forward by founding a pregnancy resource center for the most vulnerable in her community.


Jeannie French refused to follow her physician’s pressure to abort after learning her daughter would be born without most of her brain and skull. Mary lived for only a few hours but saved the lives of two other children.



Diane Simoni and Tracy Haugen believed that their children given terminal diagnoses before birth were still human beings worthy of life, regardless of its brevity.

Lourdes Hnath proudly affirms that her life is better because of her son who was born with Down syndrome.


Two other stories are shared anonymously, including a woman who recalls her visit to Planned Parenthood for an abortion after being molested by her brother and an older friend.

The 36-page issue includes thought-provoking ads in English and Spanish, about children with special needs, and of a woman conceived in rape.


Editor Jewels Green, who had an abortion and worked in an abortion clinic before becoming pro-life says, “I am deeply moved by the heartbreaking, courageous, life-affirming stories shared by these brave women. They inspire me to even stronger dedication to creating a world where resources are available to pregnant mothers, all life is respected regardless of the circumstances surrounding conception, and abortion is unthinkable.”

    Hey AJ, you have it wrong above, in that first row of pictures…. Analyn is the woman in the middle, and she is a fraud. She was never raped. She was involved with the father of her daughter. He took off when he learned she was pregnant. She made up the rape story because she was too ashamed of the fact that she became pregnant out of wedlock (incidentally, it happened two more times.)

    Why don’t you ask her for some proof of her legal battle with her supposed rapist. It doesn’t exist. She is a fraud and a sociopath.

    • I didn’t write this, it’s a repost of “Feminists for Life Names Remarkable Pro-Life Women®”. Everything you (and the other person below) say about these women (and others) is unsubstantiated.

      • Veritas says:

        What would you say is more serious; unsubstantiated allegations of rape and abuse, or unsubstantiated allegations of unsubstantiated allegations? I believe as long as the former are unsubstantiated, then the latter are not.

        Don’t believe everything you hear or read. There are sociopaths among us.

    There is another one like Ann Myers:
    Robert K. Parker, Daniel A. Ray, David E. Lewis, and others. Parker forgave the gunman who shot his daughter, while Lewis forgave the gunman who shot his grandson. Lewis’s grandson died a hero saving others. The gunman is dead. It is too late for the gunman to receive God’s forgiveness as his fate is sealed and it is up to us (Christians) to forgive him. My brother was crying because there is so many children shot dead in one day. I hope to God I can never see such a thing again. Rest in peace, 27 children and adults.

  5. V.E.G. says:

    Kristi Jones was conceived in incest. Her mother is attacked by her own father, Josef Fritzl style and Jones is a Christian.

  6. V.E.G. says:

    Kristi Hofferber and Patricia Gazzaneo Casey was born to a father was pulling a Josef Fritzl. They lived to tell about it.

  7. V.E.G. says:

    There is another one like Ann Myers: Robert T. Oliver, possibly the most forgiving man in known history, and he was the grandson of the state senator from Virginia, a Freemason, and a lawyer. Oliver forgave the pilot for killing his son.

  8. V.E.G. says:

    Also, Robert T. Oliver’s grandfather was a mayor of Fairfax, the member of the Ku Klux Klan (he withdrew later), and a member of the Junior Order of United American Mechanics.

  9. V.E.G. says:

    Also, Robert T. Oliver’s grandfather was the member of Improved Order of Red Men and Odd Fellows. Not bad for a man with many clubs has a forgiving grandson!
