Rabbi Arthur Waskow: Sex, Contraception, Abortion -- And God
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Dear members and friends of The Shalom Center,
Sex, abortion, rape and contraception are back on the front pages again, as they were a month ago. We are seeing a multidimensional campaign against women's religious, spiritual and conscientious freedom and against their physical health. It pops up again and again, in slightly new forms each time.
(At The Shalom Center, we keep calling it "religious freedom" because talking just about "choice" makes it easier to look down on the choices women make and uplift the choices men in power make, as if they alone deal with "religious freedom.")
The Shalom Center is confronting one aspect of this campaign. A few paragraphs from here, we offer you the gist of an open letter to the Archbishop of New York, addressing the behavior of the Catholic Church on these issues. The letter has been signed by leading members of the Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim and women's communities.
