Blog: News Update – September 6, 2018

Dear Friend of CORCRC, Racism, sexism and classism are so well integrated in the American fabric that it is difficult to identify where one ‘ism’ ends and the other begins.  When projecting the fallout of a post-Roe era, the harm and negative impact will most clearly be felt by low-income women, women of color and those living in rural areas.  We know this because this group of women suffers most now when each restriction on abortion and health care access is imposed. Abortion restrictions have enormous consequences on the health of women and have negatively impacted maternal health and infant mortality.   The tragic outcome of Texas defunding and closing 82 family planning clinics in 2011 is an increase in deaths of complications of pregnancy and childbirth.  The death rate doubled. Maternal Mortality......

Dear Friend of CORCRC, A Case of Accountability Delayed: By now you are aware of the explosive news that occurred on Tuesday: Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, was found guilty of eight counts of tax and bank fraud and the President’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen plead guilty to breaking campaign finance laws under the direction of Mr. Trump.   At this time the President and his team are referring to Manafort as ‘a good man’ and claim that Cohen is a liar.  Everyone is talking about this except the President’s Party.  It is our job to make sure that silence is not acceptable. Transparency and accountability are two sides of the same coin.  Each depends on the other to achieve truth and establish trust.  We are being bombarded by truths that can......

Dear Friend of CORCRC, In the past year, we have seen sexual harassment and assault issues finally acknowledged and powerful men have been held accountable for their actions. Though there have been many successes related to the #metoo movement, one unintended consequence has been the rise of backlash groups. One group calling themselves “incels” (short for “involuntarily celibate”) has inspired rage and violence against women. The deadly van attack in Toronto a few months ago, and the killings by Elliot Rodger in Isla Vista, CA in 2014 were both said to have been inspired by the incel ideology. Read more about the dangerous ideology espoused by self-described “incels”: The Rage of the Incels – Jia Tolentino, New Yorker While the incel movement may have been accelerated by the successes in the #metoo......

Dear Friend of CORCRC, Is your instinct of self-preservation encouraging you to avoid the news while your socially-conscience self reminds you that avoidance is not an affordable luxury in such outrageous times? We are here to offer relief to this daily dilemma. To ease your conflict and strengthen your activist side, know that a recent poll conducted by NBC and the Wall Street Journal shows that more voters are in support of abortion rights than not! Support for Roe v. Wade Hits New High More good news: Support for Roe is reflected in the attitudes that voters have towards the Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.  The polls reveal that he is not a ‘shoe-in’.  Lack of support for this candidate must be made clear so that his nomination can comfortably be defeated. Now, some......

Dear Friend of CORCRC, President Trump has nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.   His name was recently added to the list of handpicked conservative candidates that Trump touted during the presidential campaign. Concern for the rights of women and the health of Roe versus Wade are a major concern.  A Washington Post article emphasized the glee expressed by the religious right when this announcement was made and included a statement by the RCRC.  Mollie Katz (RCRC Communications Director) clearly summarized RCRC’s views about pregnant people making their own decisions based on their own conscience and their diverse religious beliefs regarding abortion.  RCRC origins in the Clergy Consultation Service were mentioned as an example of how clergy have reacted to restrictive laws in the past. It is important to review Kavanaugh’s......
