Life sometimes presents what seems like contradictions. The following article says “all bodies are sacred” but then the article goes on to support the murder of the unborn! Reproductive justice is just a phrase for “go ahead it’s ok to kill the unborn”!
‘As Unitarian Universalists, we are outraged and heartbroken that the conservative majority on the U.S. Supreme Court last week announced that they would allow the implementation of SB8—a Texas anti-abortion bill that outlaws abortion after six weeks gestation. We believe that all bodies are sacred. Every person has the right to determine what happens to their own body at all phases of life—including if, when, and how they want to have children. As people of faith, this commitment is part of our deepest religious values: Unitarian Universalism proclaims that all individuals and communities have the right to self-determination, safety, and the resources that are necessary for health and sustainability.
As Unitarian Universalists, we believe that all bodies are sacred. Every person has the right to determine what happens to their own body at all phases of life.
Our faith tradition has a long legacy of advocating for safe, legal, accessible abortion care for anyone who needs it. Unitarian Universalists were among the plaintiffs suing the state of Texas over SB8 in Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson. Unitarian Universalist ministers and congregations were part of the Clergy Consultation Service, which supported people in accessing abortion care before Roe v. Wade. And from developing the most comprehensive sexuality education program in North America through Our Whole Lives, to regularly affirming our support for abortion access and care in resolutions from our General Assembly, dating back to 1962, we have been steadfast in showing up for reproductive justice.
This anti-abortion bill not only violates basic reproductive freedom, it also deputizes private citizens to act as vigilantes who can receive bounties for bringing lawsuits against individuals who receive, “aid and abet,” or provide abortion care. This decision, which overturns decades of legal precedent dating back to 1973’s Roe v. Wade, signals that any state can effectively ban abortion within its borders. Safe, legal, nationwide access to abortion care is no longer the law of the land.’https://www.uua.org/pressroom/press-releases/uus-remain-committed-reproductive-justice
