Unitarian Universalist Church and CA Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice
Darcy Baxter, www.darcybaxter.com : I’m a Unitarian Universalist Minister and part of the Center for American Progress’ Faith and Reproductive Justice Leadership Institute. I serve a church in Hayward, CA as their Director of Family Ministry and as the SF Bay Area Regional Organizer for the California Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice.
Here is some religious liberty news that we reproductive justicers can celebrate: on Saturday, hundreds of Unitarian Universalist congregational delegates voted to make Reproductive Justice their next action and study issue.
How will you let abortion-care providers know that in a harsh world devastated by coercion and violence, you understand that radical acts of compassion and justice, like providing abortion-care, are exactly what we need more of?
I recently had the honor of addressing a group of abortion providers on "Resurrecting Our Moral Center." I do not think it was coincidental that less than a year after Tiller's murder, we were talking about resurrection. God, how much we miss him.
How should the reproductive justice community address the fear of disenfranchisement, this fear that has fueled a very successful anti-abortion movement that continues to effectively limit and prevent access to abortion and other reproductive health services?
