Can a woman be a feminist and also a Christian? For Carly Friorina, this is certainly possible. However, View Host Whoopi Goldberg seems to disagree by boldly asking Fiorina, "Are you going to run as a person who's going to govern for everyone, or are you running on your Christian beliefs." She continues, "Because you said some wonderful things and it made me beg the question...if you feel that women should have the choices...why do you think choice is not a good thing?"
that provoked a somewhat neutral response from Fiorina “Abortion is obviously a very delicate subject. I happen to believe that science is proving us right. The DNA in a zygote is the same as the DNA the day you die, we do have common ground on this issue now,” Fiorina continued. “The majority of women, the majority of young people, the majority of Americans now think that late-term abortion for any reason at all is a problem. So what I say is, let’s go find that common ground.”
Previously, Fiorina boasted in the feminist belief that "a feminist is any woman who lives the life she chooses, I make no value judgments on the kind of life a woman lives as long as she chooses her life, and somebody isn’t choosing it for her — or she’s being denied something because of her gender.”
So this begs the question, can a woman be a feminist and a Christian at the same time, (supporting pro-life)?
Fiorina seems to have found a common ground between pro-life and pro-choice by advocating "If you read the polls you can see that most Americans think long term abortions are a problem." But isn't this going against her feminism views of "a feminist is any woman who lives the life she chooses"? To some it may, however, Fiorina is taking a turn on the definition of feminism (for the 2016 elections), as she is marketing a "reclaim" on the dominantly left term.
