The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (CORCRC) brings the moral power of religious communities to ensure reproductive justice through individual advocacy, education and counseling.
For nearly 40 years, we were the primary religious voice for reproductive justice in Colorado.
CORCRC supports each woman’s right to have the personal and spiritual freedom to make the choice that is consistent with her religious and ethical beliefs. CORCRC acknowledges and defends a woman’s ability to make decisions that are in keeping with her life and principles.
We do not take the question of abortion lightly. Because each denomination and faith group represented among us approaches the issue of abortion from the unique position of its own theology, CORCRC acknowledges widely varying viewpoints as to when life begins. It is exactly this plurality of beliefs, which leads us to the conviction that the abortion decision must remain with the individual, to be made on the basis of health considerations, conscience and personal religious principals.
As people of faith, we support a person’s right to personal and spiritual freedom needed to make the choices that are consistent with their religious and ethical beliefs. This stand makes our active support of the First Amendment imperative. We are strong advocates of the separation of church and state: freedom of and from religion
Our work is to strengthen the voice of different faith communities, denominations and those of no particular faith to promote reproductive health, rights and justice.
