KRCRC is Kentucky’s state affiliate of the national
Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (rcrc.org).
We are an interfaith coalition of people of faith and conscience,
mobilizing our moral power to safeguard and advance reproductive justice in Kentucky. .
Our purpose is to ensure access to family planning,
other reproductive health services (including medically safe abortion) and comprehensive sexuality education.
Planning one’s family is a fundamental right and a key factor
in determining the physical, social and economic health and well-being of individuals, their families and their communities.
Many mainstream religions support the right of women
to make decisions about their reproductive lives.
Such decisions can be moral, ethical, and religiously responsible. Government must affirm and protect each woman’s right to act in accordance with her own conscience and religious beliefs.

Jewish – Conservative, Reform, Humanist and Reconstructionist
Metropolitan Community Church
United Church of Christ
