At Catholics for Choice, we strive to be an expression of Catholicism as it is lived by ordinary people and serve as a voice for the majority of Catholics—including over 70 million in the United States—who support access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion. We seek to build a strong community of prochoice Catholic advocates and advance sound public policy rooted in true religious liberty, social justice and respect for conscience. As prochoice Catholics, it is our responsibility to speak up and remind our elected officials who they represent and how the majority of Catholics really feel about reproductive health, rights and justice.
The proper role of government is to protect each person’s right to make decisions according to their own beliefs and values, not just the loud and powerful. Our antichoice opponents claim to speak for all Catholics in denouncing access to much-needed reproductive health care, when in fact they represent only a very vocal minority. They are calling their supporters to action, telling policymakers that they are sources of expertise on Catholic people and policies. We must make sure that theirs are not the only Catholic voices being heard on issues of reproductive health, rights and justice.
This is your home for prochoice Catholic advocacy.
