Mission Statement

The mission of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice is to be the leading religious voice for reproductive justice in the country. We are a state affiliate of the national Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice.

Description

We are a state affiliate of the national Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. RCRC of CT is made up of people from a variety of faith traditions, including: Catholic, Jewish, Episcopal, United Methodist, Presbyterian and Unitarian Universalist. For over 40 years, RCRC has been a voice for reproductive choice, and has been active in working with women and men - especially those at the margins - at the intersection of faith, policy and our reproductive lives. Supportive clergy have been giving sermons about the moral agency of women to make decisions about their lives for decades, as well as praying quietly with women when actually making those decisions. We have stood arm-in-arm with proponents of comprehensive sexuality education, worked for a version of the Affordable Care Act that included contraception with no co-pays, and were instrumental in bringing faithful voices of those at the pulpit, in pews and in communities across the country to issues such as the Violence Against Women Act, the approval of Plan B pills and telemedicine for abortions, and for the ability of servicewomen to access abortion care while serving our country. We believe in faith expressed in action. Solidly grounded in a deep belief that our work should be sourced, implemented and led by the people it affects, we are building a grassroots movement of people who understand that it’s time for religious people who believe in reproductive justice to stand up.
