Birth of child transforms pro-choice feminist: ‘I ask Christians for forgiveness for feminist protest’

Sara Fernanda Giromin-then-now

Sara Fernanda Giromin, who achieved fame in Brazil as a strident feminist and founder of the Femen Brazil movement under the name “Sara Winter,” where she and other like-minded women staged topless protests, has made a complete about-face.

It took the birth of a child to do it.

She now renounces modern feminism, is solidly pro-life, no longer considers herself to be bi-sexual and is apologizing to Christians for her past behavior.

The process began earlier this year and has culminated in a short book outlining her disappointments with the feminist movement and abuses she received from former fellow-feminists, according to LifeSite News.

In October, with the birth of her second child, Giromin came to realize how precious life is — she’d aborted her first child.

“I have repented of having had an abortion and today I ask for forgiveness,” wrote Giromin. “Yesterday marked one month after the birth of my baby and my life has taken on a new meaning. I’m writing this while he sleeps serenely on my lap. It is the greatest sensation in the world.”

She added a plea to other women who are considering abortion.

“Please, women who are desperate to abort, think carefully about it. I was very sorry I did it. I don’t want the same for you,” she added.

In the months that have followed, Giromin has revealed to her readership her disillusionment with feminism and gender ideology, and has repudiated her “bisexual” orientation. She has also expressed remorse for having offended Christians in January of 2014, when she engaged in a well publicized same-sex kiss with another seminude girl with a cross in the background, in front of the Church of Our Lady of Candelária in Rio de Janeiro. The photo of the two had become iconic in Brazil of homosexual contempt for Christianity.


Asking for forgiveness is certainly not an easy thing to do,” Giromin said in the YouTube video that follows. “We went way too far and ended up offending many religious and non-religious people,” she added, recognizing the stunt as a form of “blasphemy.” She adds that she is making progress in her own spiritual life, although the exact nature of her current beliefs remains unclear.

Giromin’s repentance can be seen as the ultimate holiday story, with the birth of a child bringing salvation, and ending with the ultimate New Year’s resolution.

Here’s Giromin’s video, titled “I ask Christians for forgiveness for feminist protest.” It’s in her native Portuguese with no English subtitles, unfortunately. But even if you don’t understand the language, you can get a sense of her earnestness.
