BIG THANK TO OUR GREAT Susan B. Anthony

Dear valued visitors,


Susan B. Anthony, whose face is on a U.S. dollar coin, died MARCH 13, 1906.

Raised a Quaker, her father owned a cotton mill and refused to buy cotton from farmers who owned slaves. Susan B. Anthony's religious upbringing instilled in her the concept that every one is equal before God and motivated her to crusade for freedom for slaves and a woman's right to vote.

Opposing liquor, drunkenness and abortion, Susan encountered mobs, armed threats, objects thrown at her and was hung in effigy.

After the Civil War, Susan B. Anthony worked hard for the passage of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments.

She succeeded in having women admitted to the University of Rochester and was arrested for voting in the 1872 Presidential Election.

Fourteen years after her death, women won the right to vote.

Quoted in The Revolution, July 1869, Susan B. Anthony stated:

"I deplore the horrible crime of child-murder...No matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed.

It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; but oh! Thrice guilty is he who...drove her to the desperation which impels her to the crime."

This is a great one to share with your daughters - and sons. Interesting how women used to often be the conscience of the culture and willing to face persecution to stand for what is right.
