National Priests' group questions
pro-abortion "theology" classes
New York City- Priests for Life responded today to the Religious
Coalition for Reproductive Rights' recent move to begin "Theology and
Reproductive Rights" classes in Protestant seminaries.
"The reproductive theology of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive
Rights (RCRC) has been exposed in a study as inconsistent with the positions of
the denominations it claims to represent," said Fr. Frank Pavone, National
Director of Priests for Life and President of the National Pro-Life Religious
Council, which commissioned the study. "The book Holy Abortion?
shows that while many denominations consider abortion a 'necessary evil,' RCRC
presents it as a positive good, even a holy act. That is offensive not only to
most Christians but to most Americans generally."
