Clergy for Reproductive Freedom

Did you know that prior to abortion becoming legal throughout the U.S. in 1973, religious leaders played a crucial role in helping women find safe and professional abortion care? By the late 1960s, the Clergy Consultation Service on Abortion had become an international network of more than 2,000 clergy and was the largest abortion service in the country. We want to honor those who came before us to continue to support and expand access to abortion care.

Join Us

We are calling on faith leaders across Northern California to sign on to our letter as a sign of solidarity with our position on reproductive freedom.

Who We Are

The PPNorCal Clergy for Reproductive Freedom (CRF) supports advancement of the PPNorCal mission, and is grounded in health equity, diversity, and inclusion. CRF supports the right of all people to have access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care, and believe it is critical that the broader community and elected officials hear from clergy who unequivocally support reproductive freedom and honor every patient’s right to control their fertility and future.

We are faith leaders who value all human life. We accept that religions differ about when life begins. We believe that human life is holy, which is why we believe in your right to choose to be a parent or not.

As faith leaders, we are here to help you make your own decision.

What We Do

  • Offer support to PPNorCal patients, staff, and volunteers as requested
  • Add pro-reproductive freedom religious voices to public debate
  • Promote reproductive freedom among congregations
  • Expand a growing network of supportive Clergy and Faith Leaders
  • Encourage and assist in fundraising efforts
