Legislative Action

CORCRC Legislative Positions

  • Many who oppose abortion do so because they believe that personhood begins at conception. They do not recognize that this is a religious view – only one religious view among many – and to impose it on everyone through the Government would violate the American principle of separation of church and state.
  • The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice is pro-choice, not pro-abortion.
  • Women deserve the freedom of choice to make individual reproductive decisions. In an area of moral decision-making as complex as abortion, the only one who can make an informed moral choice is the person who is pregnant. It is the woman who faces her God and answers for the decision she makes.
  • We believe that a pregnant woman should be fully informed about all her options: parenthood, adoption, and abortion, without pressure or interference from the government or other persons.
  • We believe that teenagers have special needs when it comes to sorting out the options of parenthood, adoption, and abortion.
  • We believe that religious communities are called to meet the human, emotional, and spiritual needs resulting from unwanted pregnancies.
  • Be believe that a loving God is very much present in times of pain, loss, and difficult decisions.
  • We believe in the distribution of educational materials, as well as access to workshops and lectures for both pro-choice clergy members and women. Education is crucial in ethical decision making.


The CORCRC is very active throughout the year. We continue to do outreach and follow national and state political activity that affects reproductive rights, choice and health care. We are also vigilant in assuring the separation of church and state is upheld.

Throughout the legislative session, we work closely with our allies and often testify on legislation that impacts our mission. We also participate in Women and Families on Wednesdays: a weekly presence at the State Capitol to support our issues.
