Catholics For Choice on the”Moral Clarity”of Abortion

Catholics For Choice have long been one of few faith based organizations advocating for abortion access. Jon O’Brien, the president of Catholics for Choice shared his views on the moral clarity of abortion access with The Hill. He writes:

“It is crystal clear from a moral and ethical perspective that if you believe a woman should be able to follow her conscience in decisions around a pregnancy and you respect her bodily autonomy, then you support her right to choose not just in circumstances in which you feel comfortable, but those in which she decides is best. That is the essence of being pro-choice.

The moral responsibility of decision making, at whatever the gestation, should rest with women, their doctors and their families, because only they can know their circumstances and the results of their actions. There is no reason to assume that any higher burden of justification is required than for earlier procedures.”
