Rev. Jan Barnes

Retired UCC minister

Webster Groves, MO


“Missouri’s abortion bans legislate a religious view of abortion that is entirely at odds with my religious beliefs and the reproductive counseling I’ve offered as a United Church of Christ minister. I believe that God wants health and well-being for all people, which includes the ability for people to make the reproductive decisions that are best for them. When I’ve ministered to people contemplating abortions, I’ve explained that God supports individuals in making decisions for themselves about whether to have an abortion, and that there is no biblical prohibition of abortion.”
