“Missouri’s abortion bans do not align with my faith because they punish people who choose to terminate a pregnancy. My tradition believes in freedom of conscience balanced by commitment to community, and this specifically includes making the decision to terminate a pregnancy. Faced with challenging situations, people must be free to make decisions based on both reason and their own conception of faith.  These abortion bans marginalize the most disadvantaged members of society. They directly conflict with my faith-based understanding of human life.”


Americans United & the National Women’s Law Center file suit to challenge Missouri’s abortion bans.

Abortion bans violate the separation of church and state. Americans United and the National Women’s Law Center—the leading experts in religious freedom and gender justice—have joined forces with thirteen clergy from six faith traditions to challenge Missouri’s abortion bans as unconstitutionally imposing one narrow religious doctrine on everyone.
