“ members of the United Church of Christ, the United Methodist Church, the Episcopal Church (USA), and Presbyterian Church (USA), Christian Church (Disciples of Christian), along with the historic African American denominations and others, to dream again about working together as one church, not separately.”
Rev. Currie proposes a reunification of those churches that are “moving in a progressive theological direction” – embracing, specifically, “movements of liberation for Africans, Latin Americans, women, and gays and lesbians,” preaching and living out “a Social Gospel,” and “protecting women from those who would seek to return them to second class citizen status.”
Rev. Currie explains why the Church of Christ is pro-abortion:http://chuckcurrie.blogs.com/chuck_currie/2004/11/can_christians_.html
The United Church of Christ is a signing member of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice.
Other pro-abortion denominations include:
Presbyterian Church (USA)
United Church of Christ
United Methodist Church
General Board of Church and Society, United Methodist Church
General Board of Global Ministries, Women’s Division, United Methodist Church
Unitarian Universalist Association
Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation
Young Religious Unitarian Universalists
Continental Unitarian Universalist Young Adult Network

"We honor the value and dignity of all human life but...need to...uphold the dignity of women as ethical decision makers."
