Most people of faith are pro-choice because of their religious beliefs, not in spite of them. People of all religions believe that women must be free to make decisions about childbearing according to their own faith and conscience, without government interference or coercion. We trust women to know what is best for themselves and their families.
As a national interfaith organization, the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice provides information about the spiritual and theological dimensions of reproductive choice and religious freedom. Our resources address the full range of reproductive health issues, including comprehensive sexuality education, family planning, contraception, teen pregnancy prevention, and abortion.
If you are a civic or religious group in search of an engaging, thoughtful, and faithful speaker on issues related to reproductive healthcare, reproductive choice, reproductive justice, and religious freedom, please visit our Speakers Bureau.
