The purpose of this statement of support is to increase awareness of the numbers of people in Colorado communities of faith who are pro-actively dedicated to sustaining reproductive justice in Colorado. Reproductive justice encompasses abortion access, contraceptive choices, and comprehensive sex education. This framework espouses the human right to have children, not to have children, to parent the children one has in healthy environments and to safeguard bodily autonomy and to express one’s sexuality freely.
Those who sign this statement of support state their desire to make it obvious that there are people of all faiths and of no specific religion that stand by these convictions. In addition, we strongly are committed to the separation of church and state.
Our intent is to make this statement with signatures public by posting it on CORCRC website and encourage other religious and secular organizations to do the same. We hope to see this document in various publications to educate and to inform the public of the genuine support by people of faith for reproductive justice.
The deadline to sign will be 9.15.2016. Print versions must be mailed to PO Box 102464, Denver, Co 80250-2464 by Sept. 20, 2016. Please feel free pass a printed version of this doc and collect signatures from your congregations, friends and colleagues.
