Can you be a feminist and oppose abortion in all circumstances? Can you be a person of faith and support abortion in some circumstances?

This website is pretty cool.
It seems to me that the feminism around today has a lot of "I CANTS" in it. I can't accept my natural bodily functions and must use hormonal contraception. I can't respect my own self worth and dignity enough to save sex for marriage. I can't go through with this pregnancy and must abort.
We are practicing a new type of feminism in my house; one in which we say "I CAN!" I can learn about my body by practicing NFP. I can respect my self worth and dignity by practicing chastity. I can continue this pregnancy. (BTW, I only have 3 kids)
I believe women deserve better than contraception and abortion. Unlike a man, our bodies can do amazing things, and we should regard this as a benefit, not a burden.
