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."
