2016-17 Annual Report

Our Annual Report The Colorado Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (CORCRC) Annual Report Fiscal Year: July 2016-June 2017 Changing Landscape: Nationally and in Colorado CORCRC and our supporters experienced extreme challenges, surprises, affirmations, and disappointments in the past 12 months.  Trump’s Electoral College victory has totally disrupted the political landscape of the nation and Colorado.  Our 45th President has broken many of his campaign promises: we are now facing threats to healthcare with particular cuts to women’s reproductive healthcare and Medicaid; innocent immigrants are being deported and there is, increased international military action fighting terrorism and Russian interference in our elections has possibly been enhanced by our own administration.

Trump Plan to Deny Health Coverage for Contraception

Dear Friends and Supporters of CORCRC; Are you experiencing signs of vertigo? If so, you are not alone.  It seems to be a typical response to the dizzying and insulting decisions being made by the Trump administration.  Our status as an international leader has been toppled by today’s announcement that the U.S. will not participate in the Paris Climate Exchange.  This is just another example of this administration’s disregard of scientific facts and the protests of many American leaders and the majority of the American public.

Executive Order on Religious Freedom??

Today President Trump eased restrictions on political activity by tax-exempt churches and charities.  Though these laws have never been seriously enforced, this Presidential activity opens a Pandora’s box for official church candidate endorsements and possible financial support.   The CORCRC is anxious about the President’s weakening of the First Amendment.  His concept of religious freedom clearly denies others of their religious rights.  It begs the question: When does my religious freedom trump yours?   We will continue to defend the separation of church and state: the freedom of and from religion.   Until further notice——–   Senator Betty Boyd, President, Board of Trustees Joyce Lisbin Ed.D., Executive Director Colorado Religious Coalition For Reproductive Choice...

Discussion Questions for Cider House Rules

How important is the setting of this film: an orphanage, in Beautiful Maine, a stodgy building, etc? What did you think of Dr. Larch by the end of the movie: knowing that he doctored Homer’s heart health records and lied to Homer? Did you have any reaction to his addiction to ether? Larch makes the interesting statement that because women don’t legally have the right to choose, Homer Wells does not have a moral claim in choosing not to perform abortions. Do you find Larch’s argument compelling? Do you think Homer was ultimately convinced? What struck you about the presentation of fatherhood? Think of   Larch’s fatherly role towards Homer and compare him to Melody and Candy’s father? How do you think the film portrayed women: Candy and Melody? Do you think......
