Religious Abortion Rights Supporters Fight for Access

posted on December 1, 2021

Holly Meyer of the Associated Press reports that religious groups that support abortion rights are ramping up their activism ahead of Supreme Court oral arguments in an important Mississippi abortion case. Sheila Katz, the leader of the National Council of Jewish Women, will be co-hosting an interfaith service on December 1, the morning of the arguments. Katz said, “We’re going to start together as diverse groups of faith, to pray and learn and sign together. That feels like the right way to send the message that we are doing this work because of our faith and not in spite of it.” Other religious groups in favor of abortion rights have filed legal briefs in the court case and have hosted rallies and marches around the country.
