Your Invitation to Join
     Feminists Choosing Life of New York has teamed with The Center for Bioethics and Culture to educate the
public about the potential dangers and complications to women who donate their eggs for in-vitro fertilization or
research. The documentary film, “Eggsploitation,” produced by Jennifer Lahl, National Director of the Center
for Bioethics and Culture calls attention to the dangers of dehumanizing women, treating them as “farms” and
their eggs as a commodity, through the personal narratives of women who have experienced the procedure of
harvesting their eggs and who have been harmed. FCLNY sponsored a showing of the film in Buffalo. The film
is available for purchase at
     The women in this film give human face to the arguments that FCLNY is trying to make in their lawsuit,
FCLNY vs. Empire State Stem Cell Committee. This case attempts to prevent New York State from
compensating women for donating their eggs for research. The case, as of 1/15/2011, is in the appeals stage.
     FCLNY welcomes new members who recognize that in every abortion there are two victims, who
believe that authentic feminists are pro-life. Please call 585-234-5416 or go to and
join or to ask about the FCLNY lobby day in Albany on 4/12/11. PS--FCLNY has challenged its friends and
members to DO ONE THING for the pro-life movement and then tell them about it. The DO ONE THING
challenge was inspired by a 9/27/1897 letter from Susan B. Anthony to Laura Reynolds regarding the Suffrage
Movement. Susan B. Anthony's words are relevant today in our fight to save the unborn from abortion, "If
every woman would, like yourself, do the one thing she knows how to do and has the time to do, as you are
setting them the good example, a great deal would be done for our good cause"
                                                                               Kelly Brunacini, FCLNY exec.dir
