Mainline-Backed Group Affirms Abortion as "A Moral Religious Choice"
The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC) convened a press conference September 6 on Capitol Hill, as the guest of the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus.
RCRC, which opposes any restrictions on abortion, includes agencies of the United Methodist Church, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.),
and the Episcopal Church, among others.
“To be religious, as we see it, is to be pro-choice,” declared RCRC President Carlton Veazey, a minister in the National Baptist Convention USA. “To have a child is to have a sacred choice but to not have a child can be sacred choice,” he said.
