Multifaith Coalition Supports Family Planning For All As A Moral Imperative
On September 13, 2012, thirty-eight national religious leaders from across the theological spectrum have joined together in urging universal access to safe, affordable, accessible, and comprehensive family planning services, including increased U.S. support for domestic and global programs.
“Today, as religious leaders, we are called to support universal access to family planning,” said the Rev. Debra W. Haffner, President of the Religious Institute. “All persons should be free to make personal decisions about their families and reproductive lives that are informed by their culture, faith tradition, religious beliefs, conscience, and community.”
These 38 religious leaders endorsed the new Open Letter to Religious Leaders on Family Planning, published by the Religious Institute, a multi-faith organization dedicated to sexual health, education and justice. It is a multifaith call for religious leaders to support family planning from a faith-based perspective.
