The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Rights' recent move to begin "Theology and Reproductive Rights" classes in Protestant seminaries is not only “offensive to most Christians but to most Americans,” says a national pro-life priests group.
"The reproductive theology of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Rights 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.
"The book 'Holy Abortion?' shows that while many denominations consider abortion a 'necessary evil,' (the coalition) presents it as a positive good, even a holy act,” said Fr. Pavone, who is also president of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, which commissioned the study.
