As a Christian clergy who celebrates all the spiritual paths that lead to Love; as a woman who was unable to conceive and who grieved for years; as an aunt and grandmother who thinks children are precious, I am #ProChoice AND #ProLife
There is more than one religion practiced in this nation and no religious point of view should guide our legal processes. In fact Jesus, who is the mentor for my Christian faith, healed a woman suffering with a reproductive issue—a hemorrhaging womb—for twelve years #WomensRights
Jesus' model of compassion and love for those on the margins and those needing healing and health care drives my commitment to health care for all, and my pro-choice position. #WomensRights #ReproductiveRights #LoveTransforms
#Prochoice means if pregnant, I can choose to abort a pregnancy that endangers my life. I can terminate a pregnancy that results from rape or incest. #WomensRights #ReproductiveRights #LoveTransforms
I can take a pregnancy to term and raise a child inside a partnership or as a single parent. I can be a trans-man and choose to be the partner who gets pregnant. I can use a donor or a surrogate to have a child... #womensrights #reproductiverights #lovetransforms
I can give birth and place my child in an open or closed adoption. I can have genetic testing or not and make decisions best for my family based on that testing. #womensrights #reproductiverights #lovetransforms
I am for people making those choices guided by ethics. I am for the agency of women, who are the majority of those bearing children or not. I am pro-safe, legal, affordable and rare abortions. I am #ProChoice.

I am #ProLife. I am for the lives and agency of women around the globe. I trust they know that abortion is a moral issue and they make this decision in conversation with partners and family and Spirit.

I am for the lives of children who should have clean water and enough food and healthcare and books and supplies for a good education. I am for getting guns off the street so children can live without fear.

I am for the lives of my lgbtqia+ family & especially the lives of trans women of color who are brutalized for being brown and trans. I am pro #BlackLivesMatter and pro human lives and immigrant lives.

I am for the lives of asylum seekers and those who are incarcerated and who should be treated with dignity. I am pro- the life of the earth and the lives of creatures. I am #ProLife.
