Rector's Blog: We Believe
We believe that access to a safe, legal abortion is healthcare, and treating it otherwise serves to diminish the fullness of your humanity and weaponize your own bodies against you.
We believe you don’t need us to explain to you the complexity of carrying life within you, and the decision to terminate that life.
We believe that Christians can in good conscience disagree with one another about abortion without taking it out on you.
We believe that choosing abortion does not make you less faithful, less loved, less of anything.
We believe God knows this better than we do.
We believe God Is compassionate and understanding, and will never abandon or forsake you.
We believe that the church should not be a source of judgment and shame, but a community of love and support that stands with you unflinchingly.
We believe you.
