Wingate, NC – Feminists for Life President Serrin Foster will present “The Feminist Case Against Abortion” on the Wingate University campus. Her lecture will be held in Helms Forum in the Dickerson-Palmer Center on Tuesday, March 13 at 11 a.m.

Foster’s lecture, sponsored by Catholics on Campus, will address pro-life feminism. Her speech has been included in the anthology of Women’s Rights published in 2001.

She has led Feminists for Life of America since 1994.
