Catholics for Choice and Faith Choice Ohio Announce Strategic Partnership for Faith-Based Abortion Advocacy 

WASHINGTON – Catholics for Choice (CFC), which uplifts and amplifies the voices of the majority of Catholics who believe in reproductive freedom, and Faith Choice Ohio (FCO), which elevates the moral power of faith communities to advance reproductive health, rights, and justice, today announced a year-long strategic partnership to counteract anti-choice Catholic narratives and support pro-choice Catholic elected leaders and activists. The partnership will include collaboration in faith-based messaging, media outreach, education, advocacy, and fundraising.

Catholics for Choice President Jamie L. Manson said:

“Catholics for Choice is so excited to work with our friends at Faith Choice Ohio, whose bold, strategic, and visionary work has been an inspiration to us for some time. With a state legislature that’s been at the forefront of efforts to restrict abortion access, Ohio plays a key role in the nationwide fight for reproductive freedom. And with a population that’s 16% Catholic, the Buckeye State is a natural location for Catholics for Choice to offer resources to assist with changing hearts and minds around abortion and amplifying the voices of this country’s pro-choice Catholic majority. This exciting new partnership will help support Faith Choice Ohio’s critically important grassroots work and enhance our shared mission to advocate for abortion rights as a matter of faith.”

Faith Choice Ohio Executive Director Elaina Ramsey said:

“We at Faith Choice Ohio are honored to partner with Catholics for Choice, an innovative organization that prophetically challenges the dogma and doctrine of the Catholic hierarchy. Ohio Catholics deserve to have their values, experiences, and voices heard and represented beyond the narrow anti-abortion echo chamber of the Statehouse and the Catholic Bishops of Ohio. We’re thrilled to work with Catholics for Choice to build pro-choice power for Ohioans and faithfully strengthen the moral witness of Catholic Social Teaching and abortion justice.”
