Established in 1973, Catholics for Choice works in the United States and across the world to ensure

the organization’s core values into public policy, community life, and Catholic social thinking and
teaching. Understanding that reproductive freedom is Catholic social justice value, Catholics for
Choice works to dismantle religiously-based obstructions to abortion care, contraceptive access, and
comprehensive health care, particularly because these barriers disproportionately affect people of
color, the poor, and the vulnerable.
