Before Roe, Faith Leaders Helped Texans Get Illegal Abortions. What Will They Do Now?

posted on October 25, 2022

For Texas Monthly, Ana Marie Cox reports that Texas clergy are weighing their options to support women seeking abortions in their state, where it is illegal. She writes, “The question many faith leaders face isn’t whether they are willing to break the law; it is how far they are willing to go.” Some faith leaders in the state are rebooting a pre-Roe clergy support network that connected women seeking abortions with abortion services. The Rev. Daniel Kanter of First Unitarian Church of Dallas said, “Our reboot is about helping navigate high- and low-access states to abortion. We’ve figured out how to do this within the law.”
