Catholics for Choice (previously Catholics for a Free Choice) was founded in 1973, the same year that the U.S. Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade. A group of ordinary Catholics just like you were tired of pro-choice Catholic voices being silenced in conversations about sexual and reproductive health. Our movement was born out of bold, smart, ambitious Catholics who struggled to reconcile their faith with church teachings that harmed women.
