As of our annual Congregational Meeting on January 30, 2022 we have defined ourselves as a faith community that is committed to reproductive freedom and dignity.
Reproductive Freedom Congregations publicly affirm three principles:
We trust and respect women.
We promise that people who attend our congregation will be free from stigma, shame, or judgment for their reproductive decisions, including abortion.
We believe access to comprehensive and affordable reproductive health services is a moral and social good.
The goal of this designation is to help our church and churches like us become safer, braver spaces for supporting people through all kinds of reproductive challenges and decision-making, including miscarriage, infertility, adoption, childbirth and childrearing, the choice not to have children, and yes—abortion.
