Catholics for Choice respects and affirms the personal autonomy of all people in regard to sexuality. CFC works to counter the impact of negative sex messages from the Vatican and to promote a holistic approach to sex and sexuality. CFC promotes an honest conversation about sex that is grounded in the realities of real Catholic people by:
- Questioning the teachings about sex and sexuality in Catholic history and tradition;
- Promoting positive and healthy messages about sexuality;
- Confronting the Vatican’s rhetoric on sex and sexuality and its teachings on the value and role of women in relationships and in society; and
- Supporting evidence-based, comprehensive sexuality education policies that enable people to feel comfortable [and/or] confident about themselves, their partners and their sexuality.
