On Saturday in Washington D.C., just one day after Republican Donald Trump is sworn in as the nation's 45th president, the "Women's March" will take place in the nation's Capitol. But there's a catch. Only pro-abortion women are welcome. Let's start from the beginning.
When the Women's March became an idea, organizers reached out for sponsors. New Wave Feminists obliged. From The Atlantic:
A pro-life group based in Texas, New Wave Feminists, was granted partnership status on Friday. “Intersectional feminism is the future of feminism and of this movement,” said Bob Bland, one of the event’s co-chairs. “We must not just talk about feminism as one issue, like access to reproductive care.”
When rabid feminist Jessica Valenti noticed the pro-life group on the list of sponsors for the event, she became "horrified" and demanded they be removed.
Horrified that the @womensmarch has partnered w/an anti-choice org. Plse reconsider - inclusivity is not about bolstering those who harm us.— Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) January 16, 2017

We need to stop the myth that feminism is simply 'anything a woman does.' Feminism is a movement for justice - abortion access is central.— Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) January 16, 2017
They were removed in the name of women's rights, or something and the original decision to include the New Wave Feminists was described as an "error."

"“The Women’s March’s platform is pro-choice and that has been our stance from day one," they said in a statement.— Emma Green (@emmaogreen) January 16, 2017
The Women's March isn't for all women, just those with approved political ideologies.
According to the left, women only count so long as they're in approval of women aborting girls developing inside the womb. This is just another example. To be clear, in 2017 feminism encompasses only women (and men) who are in favor of abortion and does not include support for all women or their differing beliefs.
The Women's March isn't a march for women. It's a march for abortion.
