Beginning of Life

Abortion

Official Statement:

"Faith communities must also advocate for sexual and spiritual wholeness in society. We call for. . .

(A Statement on Lifelong Sexual Education, Sexual & Reproductive Rights, and Opposing Sexual Injustice and Violence[1])

Contraception

Official Statement:

"Faith communities must also advocate for sexual and spiritual wholeness in society. We call for. . . A faith-based commitment to sexual and reproductive rights, including access to voluntary contraception, abortion, and HIV/STI prevention and treatment." (A Statement on Lifelong Sexual Education, Sexual & Reproductive Rights, and Opposing Sexual Injustice and Violence[2])

Healthcare & Medicine

Access to Healthcare

Official Statement:

"As providers of services and care, both physical and spiritual, our members, congregations, and institutions are well-acquainted with the importance of providing access to health care for all people. All individuals, regardless of their age, income, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race or ethnicity, geography, employment status, or health status, deserve equal access to quality, affordable, inclusive and accountable health care. Reducing health care options for some based on any of these factors is profoundly unjust. As we examine the interwoven web of access within the federal budget, there are areas of profound concern for the common good and practices of good stewardship. A Faithful Budget will ensure access to quality health care by investing in wellness and making needed improvements in the health care system." (Priorities for a Faithful Federal Budget: Acting with Mercy and Justice as One Nation under God[3])
