Religious Groups that say they are for Choice

This list is from the Religious Coalition of Reproductive Choice

If your church or group is listed, that means it takes a pro-abortion stance. FYI.

Mt 7:16 You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs from thistles?

Interesting what you don't see. A big gap in the Evangelical Christian sector and the Orthodox Jewish area (which, I have been told, is the fastest growing sector of the Jewish faith both in Israel and in the US).

Interesting the growth rates of the churches listed:

The Presbyterian Church (USA) lost 46,658 members during 2003 – higher than the projected downturn and the highest percentage loss in more than a quarter of a century. The exodus reduced membership to 2,405,311 as of Dec. 31, 2003 – a loss of 1.85 million members since the PCUSA and its predecessor denominations had a peak membership of 4,254,597 in 1965.

<>UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 1999 2000 2001 2002

The UCC has suffered a net loss of members every year since 1965
