Florynce Kennedy

Florynce Kennedy was born in Kansas City on February 11, 1916 (d. December 22, 2000). She was a feminist, lawyer, civil rights activist, actress and author. She wrote an autobiography titled Color Me Flo; My Hard Life and Good Times. "Kennedy is known for her pro-choice activism on abortion, writing a book with Diane Schulder called Abortion Rap, and stating that "If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament." In 1972, Kennedy filed tax evasion charges with the Internal Revenue Service against the Catholic Church, saying that their campaign against abortion rights violated the separation of church and state."
